Look, not belittling how much you love your project car or dog. They are great, but I get far more from my two boys than my 240Z, my STI, my 2000 Datsun Roadster, together could ever give me. There is no love like the love for your own kids....

Ever wonder how when people have kids vanish from your social circle. It is because having kids is life changing. Getting married is not really that much of a change. But kids re-prioritize your life.

It will happen to you.

That's the problem. The only way to experience it, is to actually experience it. I love when I have friends or co-workers tell me that they "kind of get it" because they have a dog... Silly millennials and their fur-babies.

That said, I didn't feel "it" until my kid was a little older. A crying whining baby is still a crying whining baby... but once that interaction starts and you realize you have a legitimate legacy when you leave this world that you get to help foster and develop, it's a feeling inside that you can't put into words... I feel for the people that just go to work every day to pay the bills, thinking that's what life's all about.
