    Back to school, back to school, to prove to dad that I'm not a fool....if you don't know what movie that's from, turn in your cool card. No, really...give it to me now.

    Thought if share a picture of proud (and happy) daddy on first day of school. School summers are way too damn long.

    Bought these loafers from Mannina 2 months ago: sleak last, clean. They carry a hell of a lot of styles on a few square meters. €400,- seems to be the common price for most of the RTW collection (mine were €300,-, discounted). Blinded by a rabid hunt for loafers I did not take a lot of time checking the rest of the collection.

    Small dredge, but even for me as an avid Gym-goer and dancer, this article was an impressive load of tosh.

    Kids are great, lots of fun. My daughter is 18 months and is just discovering so much and learning heaps every day. It's great to see. I've worked 4 days a week the last 3 months to look after her one day, it's highly recommended.

    Next one is sue in only 2 weeks so we'll have our work cut out for us then.

    I suspect discussions have commenced on when to start a family. The only advice I have is to enjoy your time together now and not rush into anything until you're sure you are ready, but do not wait so long that you need to take the van from the retirement home to your kids' college graduation ceremony.

    or....tell your wife that you can't have kids...because you require that all of your clothing henceforth be made fully bespoke...

    a quick cost-benefit analysis should persuade her that the bespoke wardrobe option is the winner.

    My significant other and I have decided not to have kids. The reasons have nothing to do with a desire for bespoke clothing (her feelings about pregnancy are, uh, vehemently negative), but it's certainly a perk. You get to have a 529 for your wardrobe! [​IMG]

    We'll start trying to have kids in 2019 or so. I'll be like 33, so a bit old to be a first time father. But my dad was 37 when I was born and 39 for my sister.

    33 is old for a first time dad?

    I'm fucked. If things go my way, I won't be out of training till I'm like 35...

    I was 33 when my daughter was born. I guess it depends on how many kids you want though as to when you start and how you space them out. I'll be happy to stop at 2 and we've had them very close together (I'll let you know in a few months if that's a stupid idea or not!)

    I feel like I am in the middle of a war zone right now with temporary breaks of smiles and laughter. Mine our 2 years and 6 months old (21 months apart). My wife and I decided for the "rip the bandaid off" approach. Diapers and no sleep for a couple years and then hope for no "mistakes" down the road.

    IMO, #2 is the game changer for dad. It feels like I have 5 kids right now. In the end, their smiles and hugs make it all worth it.

    Oh, and I definitely drink more now that I have kids.

    Ditto. Another reason I'm not going to bother.

    (Not to dissuade you, though, if that's your thing. My partner's mother is a physician. She had her first kid well after she finished her residency, at 35. If anything, she just had more fun before having kids.)

    I was 22 when my first decided to show up. Life is what happens when you're making plans.
