    Being the single father of two teenage girls at the same time was pretty scary to me.

    Prolly...but honestly, I freak out over all of their problems and my husband always convinces me not to...so, is he lying to me and just trying to calm me or do men and women have different freak out rates...either way, it is more nerve wracking than being a soldier, imo.

    There ain't nothing like that first time they pull out of the driveway and head down the road behind the wheel of a car and there ain't an adult in the car with them.
    Now that's nerve-wracking.

    lol...so true. I laughed at my parents for being worried and that wasn't all that long ago. And they had every reason to believe I wasn't capable. :( And damn, if the roads haven't supersized themselves since I was a teen.

    Having children takes a leap of faith.

    Basically what you're doing is putting your heart's truest love into the hands of people who know almost nothing, and who think they're not subject to the laws of physics, and who imagine they're immortal.

    My mother often introduced me to her friends thusly:

    "And here's the reason my hair is gray"

    My daughter is 15, it hasn't been that rough. Of course, my basis for comparison is teenage gang members convicted of violent crimes, so it may just be a relative thing.

    Although, I'd have to say that ME, PMSing, might be scarier than either.
