    until I feel prepared to be a bitchin' good dad.

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.
