    Since everyone else around here seems to be having or had a kid recently I jumped on the band wagon. Meet Wesley....Born Feb 25, 2017 he's now just over two months old and he's getting easier to manage everyday.

    I miss the days when I could get a full night of sleep! He's not all smiles though...

    LOL! I love the pouty lip. He started doing this a few weeks ago. He changes almost every day. Being a parent takes a lot more time than I was thinking, but it's worth it for everything that goes along with it :) So much harder to get work done when I want to. Between him and the weather I think my Land Cruiser sat for 3 weeks before I was able to get the rear brakes done.

    ...It gets easier, right? Like it's not bad, but man, what a change! I'm sitting here getting caught up on emails and stuff while he sleeps beside me, but it's been an hour or so, probably feeding time soon, so I'll have to go wake up my wife...

    Congrats Greg!

    Yes, it gets easier, but as @kingsoup mentioned, time for not so much! LOL! I don't know how @Dah_Hunter and his wife handle twins because it's enough work with just one!

    It's all about shedule. And routine. Those are the secrets to parenting. All those terrible kids you see out there are the result of no shedule and routine.

    Once you got a strict routine down. Things will fall into place. Just have to stick to it.

    Been waiting a LONG time to see my car parked in a garage :) Should have lots of room if the two 3 series are in there. I'm hoping the Aristo fits. There are some shelves on the back wall that will be modified if they make it too short for the Aristo to fit.

    I got my hub centric rings in today and fitted my 20" wheels to the elgrand. Looks so much better now! Need to upload some pics to my thread.

    congrats!
    Yep, it gets a bit easier but mostly just different. My oldest is 6 now and we ski, bike and skate a lot. Still time intensive but more enjoyable!

    Friend made my kiddo Yoda ears and a lightsaber. She's got some mad knitting talent. It made him smile, and that makes me smile.

    'Obscene' is the wrong word here. Inappropriate, yes, obscene, naww...

    Whats to explain? Either you say it's nothing and move on, or explain *gasp* what a penis is. The world is (pardon the pun), too soft now...

    I got this for Father's Day:

    Guess what I've been doing in the evenings? :D

    I actually can't believe my wife remembered this. I had been trying to find one before Christmas and after Christmas, but they were continually sold as the shipments came in, and then I forgot about it. Somehow she actually remembered! I was genuinely shocked! :)
