Kids - A thread for bragging, venting and, advice.
« on: August 17, 2011, 12:12:49 PM »
Figured I'd split this off into a thread about kids. If memory serves, we had a thread about 'em in the old room.

Packaged my little one of to camp for the first time yesterday (9 year old, gone for 1 week).

She'll be fine and have a great time I'm sure - me and the missus will probably be a wreck by Wednesday.

The worst part of being a parent is letting go......little by little..... :'(

Mine are 8... and I'd already be a wreck. It's nice you could do that for her though.

My parents came to visit us and our son on Saturday and convinced us to let him go home with them until tonight :P

He's 19 months old.  I can't wait to see him tonight!

It's that much sweeter when they arrive home........

I believe in Santa.

I also frequently start conversations with my 6yr old with, "You know, back when I was a superhero, blah blah blah ~ but I gave it all up to be your Dad..."  He pretends he doesn't believe me, but I know there's a small part of him that does, and always will.

To everyone.... I would just like to say that we all look at our children and are so very lucky if they are healthy, many kids are not.

To all of you who know me, and were part of my families challenges a number of years ago, I still give thanks for all your support, it helped a lot when we needed it most....you know who you are

I convinced my 5-year-old niece that my car is a robot by putting the cruise control on and holding my hands away from the wheel while steering with my knee.

She was upset that the car wouldn't open the door for her.

What's the best bait?

Puppies or candy?

Love that one. I saw one a while back at a restaurant that said "Stray children will be sold"

Damian, how are the kids doing these days?

Happy belated 6th birthday to your daughter.  I agree, the time goes so so fast.  My youngest will be 3 next week on the 25th and my oldest will be 18 on the 31st and off to University!  :o

Damian, you are so so right and you know more than anyone.  I hope that the kids and everyone are doing well!

I can't wait until tomorrow when we pick up our daughter from camp. It could be one of those tears of joy moments.

She is THE best!!!!!!
There's valid reasons for the limited interest. Get out of your basement if you dare. The real world will bend you over.

I would answer......somewhere along the line I imagine yes! (just to keep them guessing)

I got 2 girls, going to be 6 and 4 in November, plus we recently found out we're expecting our 3rd child, due in March, just in time for the Leafs playoff push.   ;)
