Having a Woodford and Camacho. Took Baby Girl to college today. Not sad but celebrating. She's strong, has great faith, a leader, beautiful, a people person,... Everything I hoped to have in a daughter and friend. I'm so damn proud. I have made it a point to be close to my kids. I want them to have everything I didn't.

On a side note. Her dorm is two blocks from my favorite cigar bar. Yipee. @hapster... Pm me your address at home or office... I'll send you a surprise.

    Mine has graduated and is moving to Seattle (sniff) for her second stint with Americorp. She's everthing you'd ever want in a daughter.

    Screw you guys. Now I have to think about this for the next 18 years with 18 month old and newborn daughters. I'm going to cry in my drink every night like a damn country song.

    UTC... @ Eggcelsior... Enjoy each stage, grade, struggle, victory... I swear you'll turn around and it's there. Thanks for all the comments. I'm building some things for her form I wasn't happy with. Will go back this weekend. @hapster... Will get it then.

  • My son got his driver's license today. He's taking off in a few to hang with some buddies in his new (to him) car. I was at my buddy's house today who just had twins 2 weeks ago. They are tiny! man, seems like yesterday mine were tiny and incapable of taking care of themselves. Now they are huge and incapable of taking care of themselves :))

    on the 28th of this month we get to  go to my twin daughters school to meet their teacher...  pre-school that is :)) ...  right now 1 is just about fully potty trained and the other- well hopefully she wont have to take a poop at school or it will get ugly fast... I am already imagining the phone call now."Mr. P., your daughter is screaming and crying for a pull up, I thought you said she was pottytrained?!"

    oh where has the time gone already...  and to think my son will turn 1 in about 3 weeks.

    =))

    Bud not sure if you read my entire comments. The first part was just a poke at CT... Go back and read all of it.

    He was kidding but had a few too many pops and it came off wrong. He's had a very tough week.  I talked to him off line and he's all good.

  • Congrats @henapple. IMO, there's no better feeling in the world, as a parent, than seeing your kids grow up to be the adults you wanted them to be.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
