How many fathers are here?

I was wondering how many users from here have children, and how's your experience so far.

Experience being a father? It's been fantastic, but it's also crazy hard (but worth it). Wouldn't trade it for the world.

I can relate to the crazy hard thing. I often see myself raging about how I miss my previous lifestyle as a young one with next to nothing to worry about.

I don't want to project on anyone, but for me personally it's super important to not dwell on how easy life was before kids. If I do, that breeds frustration, then discontent, then bitterness. All things I absolutely don't want while trying to be a parent.

Though this video is appropriate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFQfylQ2Jgg

Hahaha not yet. They're not quite old enough. The oldest really isn't a tinkerer, so he's not that interested. The youngest is very much a tinkerer though, so when he's ready I'm sure he'll love to learn. (It's not so much an age prerequisite, but rather just plain coordination. My oldest probably has the dexterity to do a build unaided start-to-finish, but definitely not the youngest.)

My wife and I got the 2 for one special and had twins. 2 girls, 2 1/2 years old almost. When I was younger, I never saw myself becoming a father. Some days are easier than others, but I wouldn't change a thing.

I didn't see it coming either, and sometimes I feel really lost about everything that has to do with it, that only lasts a moment and then I realize I'm a fool for not thinking straight. I wouldn't change it too, but I wish I were in better conditions to receive a child in my life. I'm still young and immature in some things.

Wow really? That's a lot of work to get done in one day. Do you ever collapse really bad?
