That's got nothing to do with getting old---it's just that your children are---and faster than you.If you were 30 when a child was born, you are 30 times their age---But when you're 50 and they are 20, you are only two and a half times their age--see, proof.Enjoy the beer
Clyde; I like the way you think sir!As for enjoying the beer, I'll do my best!(Two home now, two more to go.) :¬)
i'm hoping they're all home now, sugar! ;~) xoxoxox(*sigh* i spoke with our #2 son earlier and he reminded me how old HE was (37!!!)...and was surprised when I was surprised to hear that! *LOL* how the hell and when the hell did that happen?) xoxoxoxo
sav; Good to hear from you missus. Hope things are starting to settle for you and MITM. :¬)Ya, time creeps up on us and before we know it we start losing our hair! (At least yours will grow back!)A happy weekend to y'all. :¬)xoxoxoxox
sav; And yes, all home, and time for this Da to get some shuteye! :¬)xoxoxoxox
Well, you knew this day was coming, yeah? Mine are so young that it's hard to imagine them being old enough to come home in the wee hours of the morning. Truth be told, I'm kind of dreading it.
Sad aint it... youth is wasted on the young!
Nothing nicer than that getting home feeling... a job well done, some heads entertained, the instruments aired... and a quiet beer. (or cuppa tea in my case) Mind you, I'll go nuts when my ten year old is finally old enough to be out on her own!
Not having kids means I'll never grow old, doesn't it???Okay, so maybe that's twisted logic, but sometimes I feel much younger than my friends who have kids (and most of them are actually younger than me!).I don't have to worry about Zoë coming in late... she's way more of a homebody than I am! ;-)
Gee Ponita, same here. I figured it's just because I didn't use up my "kid memories" on raising kids. :)Glad your brood got home okay, Da. :)
Oh, how you suffer, Map!:-)My son is a drummer -- a most excellent drummer, actually -- and I lay in bed at night, waiting for him to creep in. :-) Maybe I should just stay up and offer him a beer when the door opens. I'll bet he'd like that.Pearl
UB; Yeah pal, it's all ahead of ya! It's worth it though! :¬)(Just watchin' a Springsteen concert on TV. Live in London last year. Come on up for the risin'!):¬)
Tempo; What you said! :¬)
the watercats; It can't be avoided, the child grows up and becomes us! :¬)xxx
Pon; Yes, people with kids always age much quicker than people without kids! :¬)xxx
hope; You gonna live fo evah innit? !! :¬)xxx
Pearl; Nothing like being the parent of a musician yeah? :¬)xxx
I was always the one who stayed up but then I'm a bit of an owl.
Pat; I'm a bit of a night-owl meself! :¬)xxx
I'd have to disagree with Ponita, my kids have made feel much younger than i am... and of course Map sometimes it's much better to sit on the old couch beer in hand and listen to the silence while all the kiddies are out, those rare moments of peace are beautiful.
Kono; I know exactly what you mean!! :¬)
