Got two. Daughter 12 & son 9. Son plays soccer. Daughter plays fastpitch softball almost year round and pitches a fastball clocked at 52 MPH!

Seems like we spend more weekends at ball fields than at home sometimes, but we're lovin' every minute of it!

So, what are your young'uns onto?

It's an old story-
In a small town there was this farmer who would charge people 50 cents to watch his bull with the cows in the spring. One day, a station wagon pulls in and a man gets out and asks the farmer "how much?" The farmer tells him "50 cents each"
The man then asks if there is a discount for his 10 children. The farmer says "10 children?"
"maybe you can let my bull watch you"

Was that you, Gene?
My children are into:
son-22-make a career out of college, long distance begging for $$, recovering online gaming fanatic
daughter-21-in Germany for year of school-journalism-saving the world
son 14- swims, climbs,ps2,lego maniac

so it's off 2 work I go

Son (30) Master Electrician, has his own shop, loves to golf, loves to play guitar

Daughter (26) Editor of a small town newspaper, loves to shop, like her mom!

Son (24) computer Video editor, stage & graphic helper for local public access show for Latinos, loves to play guitar.

The two boys also have a rock band, when time permits, and when they can get together with other members!

"I Love Rock 'n Roll, put another dime in the jukebox, baby!!!"

Love your kids while they are young, they have so much energy and are such inspirations to their parents. Hopefully they will pay you back, with interest!!!

Sparky I was thinking along the same lines.

Mean Gene must not really be mean.

Christina 5, Puzzles, Coloring and hanging out with me. I will enjoy it while she still wants to.

Jennifer 3, Dressing up, Dora the Explorer and driving her older sister crazy.

Yeah I started with kids late, I will be 40 this summer.

They can tire me out faster than a 12 hour day at work.

And I started out early. I'm 25, and I have four year old daughter and eight month old son.

Kaitlynn (4) likes to color and help mommy with cooking. She also likes to watch James Bond with the old man. Aaron (8 months) has many hobbies, including throwing up, crying, pulling my hair, making interesting diapers, and throwing food at me
