I agree, the first one is indeed tough, but the rest keep getting easier. I wish I had 2000 acres of land, though. My daughters will start dating in about 10 yrs. or so. But, I do know of some prime swamp land in Louisiana !
The hardest one to have and raise is the first one. After that they get so much easier. By the time the second one arrives, you have pretty much resigned yourself no longer having a life ;D just kidding.
I have 4 daughters ages 8 to 17 (and a gun, a shovel, and 2000 acres) and I wouldn't trade one second of time with them for anything. Life is so much better as a daddy!!
