Just so Jim B., has more to ponder than LZ, dTb, REO

I tell folks my kids, Heidi and Jack, liberated me at age 46, as they bothl grew up and moved on a couple of years ago, but my favorite memory is weekends in the late 80s. We used to make a special effort to have family dinners on Saturday and Sunday, and then gather around the tube to watch either Star Trek: TNG, or, the Tracy Ullman Show, especially with the early Simpson episodes. On Sundays, Jack loved Tacos and would help out in the kitchen. His favorite line then was, "Who gets to cut the cheese?"

Cheers

I miss my guys being little. All the funny things they would say or do make me smile now. Bathtime was always a great winding down time for us. I'd bring the boom box in the bathroom and sit by the tub while they played, listening to our favorite music. They'd sing along best as they could. I remember music always being such a huge part of our lives, and I'm thankful they still keep it close to their heart now.

Not to sound too corny, but, every moment with my kids is my favorite. Even when their pains in the asses.

I miss the "firsts" with my daughter... losing the first tooth, first steps, first words...her first word was pumpkin pie... so cute. Now Im (not!) looking forward to her first experience behind the wheel of a car, and frankly that terrifies me!

I'm with you Jimstone. Even when they're a pain I love the moment. I'll be 50 soon with a 5 and 3 yr old. If I knew they would be this much fun I'd have em sooner. They crack me up every day. Hope I feel that way when they're older.

Agreed...My 9 year old just got hip on the tooth fairy...I sat him down and explained that their are certian secrets that can never be revealed, If you blow it for your sister, you face extreme torture ....3 days later he lost a tooth.....boy was he bummed.....of, course....I slipped a ten to keep his mouth shut...

My daughter is only a year and a half and is already potty training. She has her big brother beat by...a little over a year on this one. Anyway, she tried to go all by herself yesterday while my wife was busy elsewhere. She made the mistake of lifting both seats up, and ended up falling in the toilet. I was at work and missed the whole thing, unfortunately. She's still very sensitive about it. I can't wait to bust out that story when she's about to go on her first date.

That doesn't sound corny to me at all - my daughter will be 10 in March and all time with her isl precious to me. Yesterday afternoon, in the midst of the day from hell at work, she called to tell me she loved me and wanted me to come home - the "day from hell" improved!

My oldest daughter is 15, turning 16 in May. We're about to buy her a car... She's 5'10" already, pretty, smart and sweet as she can be. Good Christian heart in her....

My baby will be 13 in June. She is drop dead georgeous, got quite a little figure on her, and I'm scared to death she's going to end up boy crazy....sooooo....

Looking back on everything, there's no one favorite moment. My mother was right. They grow up fast. Enjoy them while you can.

Jeck just reading the story I visualized and started laughing out loud. Great moment. In regards to holding that story for future dates my wife and I have lots of photo's to show the boy's "girlfriends" when they are older. Can't wait!

Hey Big Dave don't describe your daughters too well! Now we want pictures!

I love the little kisses.
I love when they all play air guitar when we listen to music.
I love watching them sleep.
I love when they say more intelligent things than the adults in their presence.
I love their pure innocence.

I love 'em to death.

I'm fast approaching 36 (counting the days, now), and here's my deal:

Made a baby at 18 - he just turned 17. I got 'em now. My wife had a baby at 17, he just turned 19 (away at college). Adopted my nephew, who's 16. My wife and I have one together, he's 9.

So . . . here are my favorite moments with my children. I love it when their grandparents (or other biological parent) come and pick them up for the weekend. I love when they spend the night at their friend's houses. I love when I have to work late, and they're asleep when I get home. I love when I accidently take my spring break when they're already back in school. I love when my wife and I leave them all at home and go out together. I love when they lock themselves in their rooms, mad at the world and not speaking to me. I love when they spend the day at the homes of various aunts and uncles. I love it when they learn to drive. I love when they pack up those trunks and head off to college.

Now THAT'S some quality time.

Ha! Ron's right

Actually there are many different stages, right now I'm at the proud Dad stage. My son Dylan whos 9, was just made captain of his hockey team. Seeing him out there skating with my last name on his back makes me very proud.

A great moment was a couple of weeks ago, I told him before the game to try shooting high as I'd seen this goalie have trouble with these shots before. In the first period he skated in alone and fired a nice high shot that caught the top corner and scored. He skated towards the glass and pointed up at me and smiled

Greetings:

Watchin' em grow is priceless...
The look on their faces when they "get" something...
My boy pulling out my tape measure and measuring me as i lay on the floor and say "you're old"... my oldest daughter (22) walking up to a "picnic" with her new boyfriend and I tell him he needs to remove his hand from her backside. He tells her that she better tell her "brother" to mind his own business. (I am 38) She laughs and while he inquires what is so funny. I pull off my flannel... let him see my 18 inch arms and tats.... I smile and tell him.... "whas up homey?.... I am her daddy"
I could go on all night...
Like Linniexx says " get em all sugared up and send em on home" is what I love to do with my sisters kids

I started backpacking with my son when he was very small and it continues to this day. It is about the best way I have ever found to spend really quality time away from all the distractions of the electronic world (phones, TV, video games, computers, etc.) and to just be together in the wonder that is nature. Hiking and talking together in the backcountry for days and spending the nights under the stars has just kept us closer than I could have ever hoped for. He is now 18 and we are the best of friends. Even though I have been a single dad for the last 10 years, he says we have the best father/son relationship of anyone he knows, and I agree.

We still hope to take ever expanding trips (Gotta do New Zealand!)...we got about 2 weeks in the backcountry of Colorado in 2002 and sliding down a glacier together at 13,000 ft. is a memory and a laugh we will both have with us forever.

I know a guy who has pretty effective method of setting his daughters suitors straight before a date. He takes them off to the side and puts something in their hand:

Dad: Know what this is?

Date: Yessir...it's .38 bullet

Dad: That's right!

Date: Here you go...(handing Dad the bullet back)

Dad: No you keep it. Just remember I have the other five.

This has been known to actually change the course of a date in the right direction.
