It's interesting to experience first hand, that's for sure, 2 months in. On one hand I keep looking for the pause / res(e)t button (haven't found it yet), on the other I can't keep myself from playing with her feet, and I didn't even know I have a foot fetish!

My first post here! Don't look too hard for the reset/pause button. It will seem like a week has gone by and you'll be sending them off to college. Enjoy every moment.

This!!!! My daughter is home for the weekend from college. Impossible to explain the relationship, like ToG says, just very special. Enjoy the ride! It'll get bumpy for sure but it'll be the best ride ever!

congratulations!!! ! OMG such a cute pic! Most wonderful journey ever, and the hardest sometimes. Sending you all the good vibes and positive energy I can muster! Being a new parent is incredible! Scary sometimes, overwhelming sometimes and pure perfection sometimes.

One caution in this endeavor... if you keep feeding her, she will eventually turn into a TEENAGER :eek:
and THAT is when feeding them REALLY starts

Hahaha! Yep. Had my daughter left for college when she was 15 I'd have been nothing short of relieved... but then she turned into an adult, a smart, funny and independent person who I like. Then she moves out! Damn.

We have 5 daughters, 0 sons. If you do it right, they make you into the very best version of yourself. You have to completely forget that selfish bastard you have been, and become selfless and patient.

Congratulations and welcome to the club. My only kid turned 7 yesterday and it's somewhat mind-blowing.

There's some real truth to that saying. My boys are 11 and 13. One still a child, the other one has really grown up over the last year. It doesn't seem that long ago that I had to carry a diaper bag every time I left the house with one of them. Another relevant saying -- it doesn't get easier, but it does get different.

And save your effort -- there is no pause/reset button.

If you're lucky they will end up liking the same stuff as you.

Fortunately for me both my kids kids (10 and 7) have started to take a liking to Star Trek. The other night we were having an awesome (to me) in-depth discussion of the Star Trek movies and series plot lines, timelines, and how they interconnect. The kids were fascinated but it drove my wife from the room because she thinks sci-fi is dumb.

Babies' feet are great. But for me it was my son's ears. They are still deliciously soft.

Nonetheless, my wife and I still occasionally ask each other whose idea it was to have kids.

Mine will be 3 in the new year, and I can't believe how ridiculously fun it is. Now that she's talking and has her own ideas and can express herself, she made me double over in laughter several times this weekend alone. Her baby ringlets are growing out though, which makes me a little sad...

The best advice I ever received was from an elderly woman at my church. She wrote in a letter that everyone will try to convince you how bad it is when your children is age ____. She said that she enjoyed every phase of her children's life and never let someone tell you a certain age is not rewarding. Every day is precious and valuable.
