Default OT Kids are great and all...

But don't they kind of suck the life out of you?

I have a 3 month old who hasn't sh*t in 6 days, and a 4 year old, who insists on being referred to as an Easter egg.

Soul officially bled dry...

An Easter egg. That's pretty funny. When they hit the teens you'll be lookin back on these days, wishing you had a Deloreon with a flux capacitor.

Especially at that age... All things considered, you've got them ideally spaced apart. IMO, 4 years difference is perfect (that's what my kids are).

Sorry to hear about the bowel troubles with your baby. We went throu probably 8-12 weeks of diarrhea last year with a 1 year old. Not fun...

But not counting the days between ****s of anybody but yourself. There's a trade off.

We've got one daughter, who will turn 3 in May.

Being a dad is awesome, but props to the parents who are raising more than one, because raising one kid is a lot of damn work.....rewarding, but a lot of work.

You get a little perspective and even more respect for your parents when you realize all that goes into raising a child properly and giving them all the love and other things they need to grow up and eventually go out on their own.

If I wasn't 40 years old, my wife and I probably have a 2nd kid, but she is 39 and if we are/were going to have a 2nd one, it would have to be really soon....and I don't see that happening.

I would absolutely love to have one boy and one girl.

We'll see....but I think we will probably only have Katie, but we have 2 dogs that act as her brother and sister and look out for her.

There were days when the twins were really little... when sleep-deprivation had become a way of life for us (they were like a tag-team; when one was asleep, the other was usually wide awake). Nothing in life is more worthwhile than being a parent though. Hang in there...

When my daughter hits the teens, I will be posting from the inpatient psych ward after a self inflicted frontal lobotomy.

So I'm comforted to hear that the 4 year difference is working for you all. I'm afraid that my daughter will crush his soul with the fingernail painting and hair styling requests. We might as well sign him up
for male figure skating right now.

Interesting... you're probably better off running a loop of gay porn in his room to try and turn him off from it by the time he hits his teenage years.

Or he can just hit on all her friends when he's old enough. It's always great when the brother is a few years younger than the sis.

First of all and most importantly, you've named her Katie, which ensures she will be a bad ass! secondly, modern science is amazing. We had our second late. Mostly because I couldn't fathom an only child/diva girl without anyone to step up to her nonsense. Believe me, anything is possible these days. And there is the added bonus of being as old as dirt when they hit the "problematic years"

Automatic purple heart awarded to parents of multiples. I have two (but only one in diapers - KEY point), a dog/horse, and fish and I'm considering drinking myself to sleep nightly.

No question. The smile that followed the "anal stimulation" of the K Y jellied Q tip is indelibly etched in my mind. Not that there's anything wrong with that Chris

Not sure I can ever have kids, they are gross.

When they're babies they're balls of ****, piss, and gas.

When they're toddlers they are dumb as sh*t. I mean I ate a giant moth when I was that age, wtf was wrong me?

Pre teens are little grease balls. If it's a girl they will inevitably start hating their mom. If it's a boy they'll start taking extra long showers and become awkward.

Teenagers are a-holes.

The one thing about having a daughter and a son is he may get upset and call her all kinds of derogatory names.......

But nobody else will....

Excellent point. And quite telling that my best parenting advice in weeks has come from "Drunken Broncholic."

Oh darling, these are the easy times, reflectively. Wait till they're teenagers. Two little sweethearts who suddenly look at you as the dumb one and know it all. I had 6 and now people ask me how I did it and I get the chills. I don't know. God is good that way. Like labor pains, you bury the bad times, but occassionally the memories come forward. Chills......

Just remember, this too shall pass.

I should have had puppies. I kid, I adore them now that they are adults and going through what I did. Pay back, it's hilarious!

Kids are inherently gross. Balls of ****, piss, gas, and vomit.

I'm not sure they ever grow out of being dumb as sh*t. A giant moth would be considered nutrition at this point for us.

Girls are genetically programmed to hate their mom and boys are always awkward but you will never have to fear prolonged showers.
