Family fever?! Meaning you’re ready to start your own family? That’s awesome, pabs. It’s the greatest decision I ever made. Make sure you’ve picked the right lifelong partner, first. But then, go for it!! One is easy. Two, is harder but very rewarding and three is insane but for us feels perfect. steve has 11 kids though and seems to make it work. -only a slight exaggeration.

Glad you enjoyed the story. I have a bunch more from this Forever Labs journey. It’s been wild and we are only just getting started! Onward!

Just having that ability to build connections and relationships as a family for example.. I'm just counting the years until I feel prepared to be a bitchin' good dad.

    steve has 11 kids though

Nice one steve, the thought of that just killed my family fever /s

IMHO - you'll never really be ready.

    the thought of that just killed my family fever

it certainly feels like 11 on some days. If you ever really want to kill your family fever, come on out to Denver for a visit...

Joking aside, 80% of my kids have been amazing. 20% have made me earn my stripes.

Those of us with one kid are shuddering at having enough to think about them statistically.

Amen. I have two now (and that's all I'll ever have unless I have a religious conversion and adopt), and I feel like all I do is chase kids. If I had the ability to function on 5 or 6 hours of sleep consistently I think I'd feel less overwhelmed by the experience, because at least it'd afford some leisure time. But having two toddlers isn't simple a nonstop gong show. Any more than two just seems like pure punishment.
