Cripes almighty!

I'm fine, I'm fine, I just... have something in my eye...

One of the little buggers almost made me cry... Threw a huge temper tantrum that I've been thinking about all night, it kinda got to me, and just now, came down the stairs, and looked at me and said, "I'm sorry I made you sad." OMG...

How can they piss you off so much and in the next moment, make you so happy? Freakin' A... One month here and it's already getting to me.

Yeah. Although very similar, the kiddos can talk in human language giving them an advantage.


Wait, now that I think about it, maybe that's not really an advantage...

Get used to it. They can be an enormous source of frustration, and an amazing fountain of joy. Sometimes one right after the other!

Kids are a trip huh UA?

It's amazing because next thing you know you will find yourself totally in love with them... a true honest love that cannot be matched by any other. Kids are what makes this world wonderful. You are one lucky man, UA.

clearly I seemed to have either A) walked through a time rift, or B) biked so fast that time moved slower for me.

Well, kids can appologise and ask for forgiveness. Cats never do.

I have 5 daughters and two grand daughters. Talk about the extremes of emotion. Its a wonderful wild ride, stay sober and enjoy the ups and learn from the downs.
