They grow up way too quickly
 
Yesterday my sons old truck put him down. Turned out to be just the starter. As he was under the truck putting on the new starter, I wondered where the years went to. Seemed like yesterday I was taking the training wheels off his first bike.
Kids make for a busy life but each moment is a memory. Soon they grow up and memories are what fill your day. I wish all young parents could have the perspective of a few extra years. Enjoy the moments that your kids need you, they don't last long, as it should be I guess.

My son turns 9 this year, I am 28. I used to regret having a child at such a young age. Now I am very happy I did. I get to spend my "younger" and more energetic years with him.
As you mentioned, "it seems like yesterday" when I held him for the first time. I remember every moment of the day he was born like it was moments ago. I just hope the next 9 years do not go as fast.

I have a three year old and one on the way so I have to take your words for it! I will say that I am amazed everyday how "old" he seems to get and how fun it is to see how much they want to be like you. I realize that I am so much like my old man now. Good times!!

Oldest will 22 in may, daughter is gonna be a senior, Youngest is gonna be the dreaded 13:eek:

NEVER wanted no damn kids....but...Will NEVER forget that day almost 22 years ago i went from being a wild eyed, punk ass kid that was into fast cars, faster girls and big bottles of whiskey to a being a daddy...changed my life forever. For the better!!

Damn do i chuckle when i look back think about how these kids have made my life so much better, made me appreciate life and have caused me mass amounts of grief all at the same time.

+100 to that. They are truly life savers. I may be young but I definitely have matured way beyond my years when my son was born. Believe it or not, but ive been getting baby fever lately. I keep bringing it up to my wife. With my son turning 9 this year, I don't want more then a 10 year gap between kids. I'd like to enjoy them while I still have the energy.
