    All about raising children...

    Is this good or what???

    1.You spend the first two years of their lives teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.
    2.Grandchildren are God’s reward for not killing your own children.
    3.Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.
    4.Children seldom misquote you. In fact they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn’t have said.
    5.The main purpose of holding children’s parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own.
    6.We child-protect our homes, but they are still getting in.
    ADVICE FOR THE DAY.
    Be nice to your kids they will choose your nursing home one day.
    Finally:If you have a lot of tension and get a headache .Do what it says on the aspirin bottle “Take two and and keep away from children.

    Hope you enjoyed that
    Cheers

    You should have this moved to tech humor (not really techy but nothing in there really is). Being a expectant parent, I'm not sure I enjoy the humor.

    My children (twins) celebrate their 15th birthday tomorrow.

    We've had quite a road. We battle autism in one and the other ADHD with manic depression in the other.

    The battles behind us are nothing compared to the ones in front. In UDT Seals school they say "the only easy day is yesterday" To any expecting parent I say, cherish and savor each moment, the days drag on but the years fly.

    PS I'm not looking for sympathy, I could not be happier with my children, they are the best people in the world.

    fourdc i couldn't agree more

    I have a 17 year old daughter that is ODD with manic depression
    I had to google 'jfgi' to see what it meant. The irony is overwhelming.

    Is she lookin for a boyfriend?? j/k


    Anyways.. I envy all of you... I'm 21 and want children so bad..... I guess I need a girlfriend first... I'm the complete opposite of most guys my age... I want a family.... I think those of you with families are the luckiest people alive.. I don't think I could imagine anything more precious and amazing than coming home from work (or waiting at home for my wife to get home from work... whichever she wants) and sitting down to dinner with a wife and kids... You people are so lucky..... My hat is off to you...


    Peace

    Your not the only one HT, i am the same way. Having kids and a wife one day is my primary goal, i would like to have around 7 boys so i can keep my namesake going heheheh. I know that marriage can be full of ups and down, but it sure beats being single all your life.... Just my thoughts on that.

    HT,

    Until you find that special somebody may I suggest you look into programs like Big Brother or any other mentoring program. Kids today need a lot of guidance having someone who wants to spend time with them is a plus.

    Who knows maybe through that organization you might meet someone who likes kids as much as you.
