On the other hand I’m an older dad for the last one and feel more grown up. 

I bought a 410 off wabbitbosher but now need a 9mm for the youngest  

I agree, I think older dads have more patience. I feel I have more patience with this one than.

My kids are are a lot older. 20, 18 and 13. I went around a friends house the other day and they have a new born. I had forgottern the gaunt, vacant look on new parents faces.

Having the kids was the best thing we ever done, despite the constant worry, cost, frustration and arguments.

I don't think any of my 3 boys slept a full night till they started school, me and the now ex missus were wrecked for years. 30 odd years later they still give me sleepless nights,??

I'm 43 with a 3 year old and completely understand what you are saying. As for the Mrs now being an ex-Mrs, I get that too.

I'm 32 with a 2 year old and a 5 year old. Every day that goes by it gets slightly easier and more and more enjoyable. 

They both love shooting and ferreting, watch very little tv and love being outside. I reckon we are doing ok :)

I was 38 when our first was born, and had six months earlier been given a letter of redundancy from the place where all the staff expected to retire from,  as generations of their forefathers had. I was forty when my son was born and self employed. Stress? What stress? ?

Turned 30 in July last year and had my first boy born in August. I agree with the above, everyday gets a bit easier. Thinking back to the first 4 months I remember feeling like a zombie, but now we seem to be in a good routine and he’s sleeping through most nights which is the real blessing.

You know what they say, parenting does not come with a manual, you make it up as you go along. We all make mistakes, we learn and we becoming a family. We're all individuals and it's easy to feel like Jonny or Jenny's dad, rather than yourself, but being a mum or dad is a proud responsibility, all any of us can do is our best and enjoy the ride, where ever it takes us. Enjoy your kids, all; they grow up so God darn fast.
