    Ah yes, I know the feeling.

    Listening to the news in the car and explaining to an 8 year old inquiring about a stain on a blue dress.

    Or when your 4 year old can read a sign on a business, "Daddy, what is nude dancing?"

    Oh the sudden things that come up as a parent!!

    I would think having the kids themselves would far outweigh any explanations that had to be given.

    Agreed the joys of children overpower some of the challenges, however it becomes tough at times to explain why things happen in this world. Things should be simply right and wrong, however in todays society of what happens and what is acceptable makes something cloudy for a 5 and 8 year old.

    Kids are smarter and pick up more than you can imagine.

    I didn't say it was an easy task to explain the horrors and happiness of this world to a child. I just don't think it's an option to not have children because of the explanations that have to be made. It's part of what makes you a parent. You have to trust your own values and teach them to your children. At some point they will grow into their own person.

    I think you read LOTS more into what i posted. Fact is, my wife had several miscarriages during our marriage. We wanted kids, but it just never worked out. I would have been a GREAT Dad. (I was taught by my Dad, who died when i was 16, and he was a GREAT Father).
    I more meant that seeing as I don't have kids, and have no choice in it, i might as well TRY to find something positive out of the fact that i got ripped off in never having the honor of someone calling me "Dad".
    I would have explained ANYTHING till i was blue in the face if I could have been a Daddy to someone.
    Damn........now i'm good and depressed.

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. That truly is a tragedy. I am sure you would have been a great dad...starting with the fact your child would have been a Packer fan :thumbsup:

    That really hurts to not have kids of your own. Have you considered adoption?

    First............sorry to all. I haven't been feeling at all well this week, so i'm a little touchy. Plus i was at my nephew's for a party last weekend, and heard my wife talking about the miscarriage she had at about the same time my niece was born. That would have made my child the same age as my niece. I guess i kind of felt sorry for myself. Now i'm too old and too damn sick to adopt.
    Oh well.....such is life, hey?
    And any child of mine would have been a Packer fan! OR ELSE!!! :thumbsup:
    (Trippster.......I just don't KNOW about you!!! :rotflmao: )

    IM sorry about what I said about adoption cheesey. I thought it was insensitive. It hurts to talk about loss.

    It wasn't insensitive PC! I knew that you meant well!
    It's just hard sometimes, thats all. I go to family gatherings and see all the "next genereation" in my family, and my part of the family tree ends after me. Just kind of sucks, thats all.
    Hey Vike4life.......a few cold ones sure wouldn't hurt! :thumbsup:

    I missed this whole topic, but, cheesey being one of my favorite posters, I appreciate your loss. To get my two cents in, adoption is a valuable tool for those of you that may think about it. As an adoptee I certainly am a proponent. My genetic parents had to be Packer fans, my Dad roots for the Bears.

    Thanks Packone!
    I usually don't get so upset, it was just one of those things.
    We had looked into adoption years ago, but we were never financially sound enough to be accepted.
    I still felt i could have given a child LOTS of love, but i guess they wanted money more. But hey, I had an impact on alot of kids over the years. I took some hunting and fishing when their parents were too "busy" for them. The sad part is, once their parents noticed them, i was left behind.
    But such is life i guess. I tried to do the right things.

    Yes, but they didn't pertain to the Packers so I excluded them when I did my copy/paste from Peter Kings MMQB :)

    More Leroy Butler quotes from PackerNews.com..

    His projection of the team and the fans is straight on and I thought it was interesting about the Moss comments. If Leroy is trying to get a position within the Packers organization... I think pissing off Ted is a incorrect stance.
