    Raising children is a roller coaster of ups and downs.

    I noticed over the years that each is different. I have 1 that presents the white knuckle ride at times, high ..highs and low ..lows.

    I have one that presents a lot of twists and turns, unpredictable and you just never know where it's going.

    Yet another is like a pleasant water ride with a few shocking splashes.

    Then finally, the youngest that seems to be holding her powder for now but she's one spicy little squirt that has the potential to include all 3.

    One thing is for sure, when they fly the coop it doesn't end...

    Just issued that threat to my daughter recently.

    Something I *swore* I would never do when I was a teen.

    My mother did it to me...and I got twins. She got her wish...in spades.

    One of them *exactly* like me....in personality and she looks like me too (and my grandmother, RIP--who I looked just like and my mother HATED).

    At any rate...careful what you say to your kids..... :D

    Yes. Yes it is.

    Anyone who dares have children is paid back many fold for their pre-parenthood days.

    I don't see parenthood that way at all. I like it. Not being a parent would be the so called payback or curse

    It's always amazed me that kids are born with their own unique personality.
