Soul officially bled dry...
Those ages are really tough...

Shockingly, my kids are actually a help in a lot of ways now... The beatings while they were young paid off

My kid's remarkably well-adjusted. I don't know how my wife did it with me around. Well, she's been absolutely no use in the yard and not much in housework for the past 17years, so it's not like she hasn't had the time to raise the kid.

I have a 14-year-old son, and a 5-year-old daughter. My only regret is that we couldn't have had more.

They are a pain in the butt - there's no question. But I can honestly say that they make my life. I love being with them. I love watching them grow and learn. When a 14-year-old boy learns something truly important - well, there is just nothing like it. We've had a couple of those experiences in the last two weeks, and it's been priceless. (And let's face it - when you have a 14-year-old son, you DESPERATELY NEED those moments - they are complete idiots, at this age).

And my daughter! My heart is so full, when I'm with her! No offense, but I don't think you can know what I mean, unless you've had a little girl. They get to a part of your heart that is just uncharted territory. That's what makes you so vulnerable, when they hit 16 and make bad choices. But now, everything she does is sweet.

I understand why some people don't have kids. All I can say is that I am extremely grateful that I have them.

Hang in there. I could score a baseball game before I could say my ABC's. Attending sporting events was one of the few ways my father could actually stand hanging out with me and my sister when we were little. To this day it is one of the few things over which we can still bond. She'll be back.

And then proceed to rip it out of your chest and crush it with their unforgiving fist once they hit their teens.

No seriously, you are right Dom. It reminds me of a quote I once read: "To decide to have children is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." They completely take over your heart and in doing so make you feel so in love, yet so vulnerable.

Ok, enough of this poetic musing. I must now go and clean up a raging house party of gummy vitamins that melted on the laptop before my husband gets home.

Damn straight. I hated coming home to all the sticky crap.

Now I come home, change clothes, pour a bourbon and start cooking.

vixen, just for you to look forward too.

My daughter is a wonderful kid. But, last night she didn't say that she needed to be at school early, and had arranged to ride with another girl in carpool who is ... let me put this nicely, as reliable at the public transportion in Afghanistan. So, I limp into the bano to shave at 7:10, and as I'm putting on the aftershave at 7:20, Mrs Dog says, "X isn't here, shall I drive her or shall I."

Mrs Dog is a great Mother, but ... let me put this nicely. As a morning person she's along the lines of a vampire.

So, I grab my running shoes and limp in my sandals to my bag and get wallet phone keys (hey I didn't really need that cup of coffee) and drive my child IN THE RAIN up the interstate, while she nervously twirls her pony tail, and of course some guy is going 45, and some a-hole is trying to go sixty, in a lane that merges onto my interstate, but a lane I also must merge into to catch my exit.

But hey, the kid didn't even see me give 60mph the figure as I cut him off IN THE RAIN. She did say what'd I do? I said "oh not you sweetheart." I don't think I said "mother****er" audibly.

I drop off the kid who has blessedly not gone totally historonic, drive back home IN RUSH HOUR IN THE RAIN to finsish getting dressed to DRIVE IN THE RAIN POST RUSH HOUR to get in an hour late.

It's gonna be super for you in .... say 12 years or so.

Now I get to go home, pour a bourbon and starch some pants cause the ones I wore today got a bit wet.
