    My youngest kid is 8 and a half. She is still my little buddy and we do everything together. However lately she is starting to sound like a normal kid and is losing her little kid talk. Every few sentences I'll just look at her when she out of nowhere talks like a young adult. To be honest, it kind of saddens me that I don't have any more little buddys behind her........I guess I'm really getting older now.

    :(

    Once a Daddy's Girl - always a Daddy's Girl. Just keep being there for her through the next stage of life and you'll still have your little girl.

    27 years later and I'm still Daddy's Girl. Had my Papa wrapped around my pinky until he passed away in February. There are just some things we don't like to let go of - and to me - it was my connection with my Dad and my Papa.

    Oh just wait the process speeds up in the next couple years. I coached my son in football and basketball, we coached football together, we watched ESPN together every morning we watched football together. He turned 21 yesterday at college and told me he wouldn't be home for Christmas break because he found a job down at school. My point is they grow up so fast.

    I'm getting all the Daddy time I can with my little ones. If they happen to go away to that dreaded place "***** Mountain " when in their teens I hope they don't stay there too long.
    I'll always be there but it will be nice to have a relationship.

    One of my "little buddies" got married this summer. Talk about feeling old! But, its a whole new joy to have an "adult buddy". Circle of life man. I just wish the circle didn't spin so damn fast.

    Oh man, don't get me started. As a new dad, I can't believe my little man is already a 1 year old. He was walking around the kitchen last night, and I still can't believe last year at this time, he was just a little ball that couldn't even hold his head up. Time needs to slow down.

    Wait until she's in middle school and has no interest in you anymore. And you tell her how much you miss how things used to be. And she tells you, "I don't know what to say about that, Dad."

    My oldest daughter is 17 and was just accepted in to Purdue's pharmacy program. My youngest daughter is 15 and is a cheerleader captain. I wake up most mornings feeling like I was just kicked in the nuts. Lol. All kidding aside, my girls are the best and cherish your time it goes fast.

    My oldest just moved out this week. He is in his third year in college and will graduate with no debt! my youngest is a senior in high school and is trying to figure out where he's going to go to school next year. he was blessed with a very good left arm and has worked very hard to be a good baseball prospect. Nothing better then going to these colleges and hearing how much they want your son! seems like yesterday his brother was waking him up to watch sponge bob. cherish it and no matter what happens that day, tell them you love them before bed!!

    My sweet lil girl turned 10 in November and the other day I got yelled at because I was taking clothes I had folded in her room and she was changing. Whew, that truly escalated quickly. Where did my baby go? Now she sings Lady Gaga songs and tells me about her purses and lip gloss, where did Dora and barbie go??????

    Yes they grow up fast and when they do, you'll realize just how little time we have them. But wait, there's an upside. They're called grandkids, and you ain't lived till you get those. OMG they're great!

    Blessings.........Pastorjim

    Just wait until the boys start sniffing around, talk about a bad feeling. My little girl is 17 now and I can't figure how that happened.

    Beautiful daughters are God's punishment to you for how you behaved as a teenage boy.
