Fun watching

It's fun watching our kids grow and change.

Our daughter Rachel thinks so much like me. We go back and forth in arranging the rubber duckies and shampoo bottles on the back of our toilet. The pattern is constantly changing. This is a game we have never even discussed... we just do it.

I love seeing that strange part of me reflected in our child.

The takeaway for this post? If you are at a point in your life where you are considering whether or not to have kids - I'd say you should choose to expand your life. The costs are high, but the rewards are far higher.

google is featuring a funny article on their news page, today, about how to look younger. One of the sillier points made was that staying single will likely keep you looking younger. "Don't have kids, it's bad for your skin!" Uh.... some sacrifices are worth making!

It looks like your rubber duckies have grown quite a bit!

that is one of the most adorable things I've ever heard of -- not to sound gay. But that's just cute.

Great post. We have 4 wee ones. #4 was a Valentine gift from the baby gods... I tell you what - I don't know what my life would be without them - especially the 4th one!

I agree - go for the bad skin, because it means your wrinkles will be where your smile lines are.

Wow! I hadn't noticed the two of you were doing this! I was busy, dusting the top of the toilet!

Yes kids are rewarding in so many ways. Wait until you have grandchildren. It consumes you!
