I understand what you are saying, but take this into account.

-I am a single dad

-He is my only kid

-My car is far from perfect paintwise

I bought it from a place up in Minneapolis, so the entire front end has little bitty sand specs-- including the windshield.

Thank you, just now getting to where he is more manageable. He behaves better and will be going to Montesorri school in August (decided 3 days a week will be good). That will give me a break as I didn't like any of the daycares I saw before.

Great idea boss, you think he could come by twice a week for brake dust removal, no paint work?

I'll pay 50 skittles and 2 scoops of ice cream.

Nice pics man! Keep up the good work.

Of course he wants to drive it after he gets done washing it, that's the way it works with his truck. Why doesn't it work that way with pop's car?

Love his Silverado, I'm sure he enjoys washing it as well. My son has the exact same bike and washes his toy jeep when I wash my V.:thumbsup:

Use a shammy I'm pretty sure I spelled that wrong...

After you rinse the car, run a towel over it by dragging it across the car by one end. It will take a couple of passes and hopefully they are lint free.

You rock. Kids are the best. The brave part is having them and raising them. Who cares if they scratch the (insert car here) or break the (insert expensive item here), they make up for every bit of it, especially when younger.

Of course, mine are 3 and 6, so I might change my mind in a few years :thumbsup:

Yep. I was never getting married and never having kids, either. Funny how the right person changes all that.

I've never been able to stand kids, but as soon as I had one of my own I think nothing of getting puked on, getting poo on my hands, and making silly faces to try and make him smile. Things change, man- and for the better.

My absolute biggest problem with kids is that it takes time away from you and your significant other.

Of all the families I know, the parents don't spend any time by themselves anymore. If any, it's very little.

Ask any parent, if your wife/husband or your kid is trapped in a burning building and you can only save one, 9/10 times (if not 10/10) they tell you they'll save the kid.

I'm not willing to put my g/f 2nd in line to anything. Just not happening.

"Ask any parent, if your wife/husband or your kid is trapped in a burning building and you can only save one, 9/10 times (if not 10/10) they tell you they'll save the kid."

According to your question only one of them is in the building (or). Does that mean that 10/10 will leave their wife/husband and simply head to the bar?

I'm saying under any scenario if they could only save one and had to sacrifice the other.

I'm mostly busting your balls (not that it sounds like you intend to use them) ;)

Ask the same question of an innocent bystander - which will he try to save first - the parent or the child? I think human nature is the child - as the adult has a better chance of saving themself (than the child does).

Not to mention the fact that the child is your blood, as opposed to someone you met and developed a relationship with (no offense, Ladies :D).

IMO makes no difference whose blood is in it. I've spent a lot more time with my g/f and have a lot more memories.

It's like when people adopt kids. If they've raised them for 10 years, do they really care whose blood is in it?

Jon, when you have kids you then will understand that their lives take precedent. Then if you're a real parent you will easily give your life for theirs and here's why...
They are your future, the continuation of your family name.
Secondly you will realize that you've lived at least half of your life and unselfishly chose to give them the same opportunity to live theirs.
Thirdly, you can always go out and get a new girlfriend (15yrs w/ no talk about marriage???) , kids can't be replaced.

In response to your scenario, Even though my wife wasn't in the SUV with us. I still would of used my body to shield my kids and not her.

Kids aren't for everyone. I understand that a lotta people love them, and that's fine with me. But a lotta people fail to see that not everyone is going to have them or wants to have them.

I have relatives who can continue the family name, not that it matters to me anyway.

I've been with my g/f 17 months, not 15 years, I'm only 21 lol. And no, to me, she can't be replaced. Telling me that would be like me telling you your kids can be replaced.

I'm not trying to start a flame war or anything. I respect you guys with children. I just don't see my life like that ever.

Edit: In regards to your scenario, I'm glad you and your family made it out in one piece. Tornados are definately scary as hell. It also proves my point/issue though. Before you have children, your spouse is probably the most important person in your life. You'd do anything to save them. But once you have children, then all of a sudden your spouse takes the back seat. I don't want that gap between my g/f and me.
