Hell, no. AG is a piece of cake compared to attempting to mold and shape a human being into a productive member of society.

Aww, just kidding you. Having kids has been one of the greatest joys I can ever imagine- and they are resilient and wonderful.

I remember an experienced parent told me to relax when I was having my first. I was so afraid I'd screw it up! And she said, "You've never had a baby before- but this baby has never had a parent before! They don't know when you don't do it "right". Just do your best, and you'll be great.".

So now, I pass that knowledge on to you. I'm so thrilled for you! Congrats!

Congratulations, man! Best thing that'll ever happen to you. Hurry up and brew, though - you ain't gonna have any time once the baby's here!

I'm very excited. Its been a life long dream for me to have my own house and to fill it with kids. I got the house two years ago, now the second half. Thanks you both. I'm totally pumped!

+1 on that, brother. You might also want to get as much sleep as possible while you can!

Congratulations. I became a father in March, and all the cliches that everyone else says are all true.

Awesome!!

My boy is 18 months old and it's simply incredible.
You get to watch another human being develop and grow...and surprise you everyday with what they've learn the day before.

As Yooper said....they are tough little bugger.

I have a 2 year old and it changed my life. Brewing has taken a second to fatherhood. I tried to tell myself that I could just do an overnight brew 1 or 2 times a month and keep the beer flowing but it's amazing how much energy child raising takes out of you.

I might suugest you re-embrace the extract kit.

That said, we are aleready planning our next one. Don't want to have the siblings too far apart in age and we want a large family.

As long as you can manage to keep your eyes open, it's gonna be a blast!
