    I have the worst housemate ever! He eats our food, gets us to make him sandwiches and drinks, wees, poops and pukes expecting us to clean it up. Throws his food about, won't let anyone change the TV channel, leaves his stuff everywhere and expects us to clean it up and worst of all...sits around all day, never tries to get a job and contributes nothing to rent, upkeep or bills.

    Babies are like the bad indie band friend who comes to crash on your couch for a night and doesn't leave for EIGHTEEN YEARS!

    Minor 'new dad' freakout.

    Lol. It gets better honest. OK that is a lie, I'm 4 years into a life sentence and 2 years into another simultaneous sentence.

    That said I think my kids are amazing and the above was a joke. However whilst one set of problems disappears another arrives, it is an ongoing battle and one that you will never win. But at the same time it is the most enjoyable and rewarding thing I think I will ever do.

    I've been there... it's tough to kick a friend out on their @ss, but there is only so much someone can take.

    Not sure if jesting has been used in the replies, but the OP means that their son/daughter of a very young age is a bit of a handful... :D

    How old is your kid mate?

    Our son just turned 9 months at the start of this week and he's great, but teething at the moment so very unsettled (hence why both myself and my wife are up at 4am...)

    However, as dancingbear says, it's the most rewarding thing you'll ever do. :thumb:

    Trust me - it gets better. As they get older they get more and more interactive, and everything just becomes fun. Just hang on for a couple years - once you get past potty training you're good to go (pun intended).

    My biggest advice: whatever game your child comes up with, no matter how inane the rules may seem, just roll with it. It's fun.

    :)

    Man the demographic of this place is getting old, mine is a little over 18 months now.

    Are we actually raising the next wave of bit users...

    I have a four year old girl and ten month old boy. He spends all day making this voice straining groan and she has hysterical tantrums about the most minor of things. It's great.

    I'm really tired and I totally misread that... thought it said "four month old girl and ten month old boy." First question on my mind was how many partners do you have, or did you meet your wife in Area 51?" LOL

    Aaah, a daddy thread.

    I love my daughter so much, she never ceases to amaze me. She's a shade over 13 months old, on the cusp of walking, can say her basic words like mummy, daddy etc and has 3.5 teeth :D

    The new dad feeling is never stronger than when you're out and about with them in the supermarket or similar, and people stop to coo. Just fantastic, I'd recommend parenthood to anyone able to provide a stable home. I just need to win the lottery now so I can give up work until she's school age to spend as much time with her (and her planned sibling)!

    Caveat: it's really not fun when they're ill, eating nasty things off the floor or in the case of Grace, being dressed. But the negatives are so overwhelmingly outweighed by the positives.

    My daughter is 9 1/2 months now. She's at that point where she's cruising with a lot (too much) confidence, so occasionally falters.

    I love the fact that last week she learned to give kisses on demand, and this week has been giving them of her own volition.

    One thing that is handy now though - when she wants milk, she'll tell us "bot-bot" and we'll have to go and get it for her!

    But you can raise them as your minions, you can influence them and turn them into evil masterminds (Or just get them interested in your hobbies, then, eventually, watch them beat you at it ;D)

    Or mess with them and say Cows go Meow, Cats woof and Dogs Quack :p

    I intend to raise mine to be able to cut straight with a hand saw so I don't have to spend hours squaring my cuts. There is an extensive list of things my apprentice must be able to perform by the age of 5 or he'll have to start paying his own way...

    It was a slightly provocative post with the intention of eliciting a wry smile and a few replies from Bit-tech dads (we're all getting on a bit!).
    It's lovely reading through some of the replies. Our wee laddy is 13 months now:
    Limited talking (mostly chuntering to himself), standing whilst holding on, climbing me (6' 5") to reach lights when I pick him up, tantrums about anything which pisses him off even slightly but I have developed dozens of distraction techniques, eating finger food and generally being everywhere all at once.
    I love being a dad and it has added to my enjoyment of life as well as giving me a good excuse to play meaningless games again just for the fun of it all.
    There are difficult times and it has been a struggle to cope but I wouldn't swap it because my life would feel a little emptier and flat without him.

    My dad did this to me, only it was 'nanny go moo moo', and not knowing any better, said it... aloud. Not a happy nanny later:blush: Whoops
