    I know why lions eat their young!

    It's 3:55 am here in Las Vegas and my 3 month old son thinks it must be mid day. I have been up for the last 2 hours in which time I have been pee'ed on, screamed at and spit up on. I love this child more than anything else in this world, and I believe it's evident due to the fact he's still screaming and I have not lost it.

    Sorry for my middle of the night rant but I thought some new parents might be able to relate. For the younger members there is no greater birth control than a screaming child at 3:30 in the morning!

    Yeah, it won't be long before he's telling you about how wrong you are about most things in life.

    My eldest son was a pill. Once he was fed, changed, checked for a fever and his safety confirmed, there was little else to be done. I remember telling him, "I love you, I love you. Now cry." Then I would lay him down, close the door, and turn up the stereo or TV. Eventually he cried out and went to sleep.

    After he was about 6 months old he had noticeably fewer crying jags.

    Best of luck.

    Enjoy it all, while you can. They grow up, and go out on their own all too quick. Take it from an old man, that sometimes wonder just where all the time went.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. Everytime I start to get frustrated I try to remember that this won't last for long, and that God has blessed me with the most precious thing. It's truly amazing, everyone trys to tell you how much it will change your life, but you have no idea till your in the thick of it.

    My only complaint about this site is that I can't get everyone togather and buy them a beer. We've got a great group of guys and gals here. Thanks again for the kind words.

    Enjoy it while you can, they will grow up and go on about their lives before you even realize what happened.

    Enjoy it while you can...my youngest just turned 3 and to be honest I DO NOT MISS THE ALL NIGHTERS!! I do however enjoy the memories of singing to both my children and watching them respond to my voice. Now 5 and 3 they both respond to my voice when they are sick or scared. My boys are my life and I would die before I let anything happen to them. Presently they are watching E.T. and they love this movie.
    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    Patience, laddie. In about 2 years you get to enjoy the wonderment of human development, the insatiable curiosity of children, and the wonderful way they can reduce a complex situation to the most basic elements.

    Then after a dozen years of relative calm, the hormones kick in, and it all goes to hell in a handbasket for another 5 years.

    Old Sarge, you took the words right out of my mouth.
