I just heard that song on the radio.

I've been a father for a bit over a year now. I haven't heard that song in years. Now that I am a father, that song hit home so hard I've been crying for about a half hour now.

Ayla, I love you. You are the greatest thing to happen in my life. You'll probably never see this thread and post and in the big picture it means very little, but I had to share my love for my child somewhere in this moment.

If you have a kid, give em a hug today.

I love the original.

But this version... her voice, the horns. Soulful.

Wait, wait, was that wept, or looked up your state's penalty for infanticide?

If you've never simultaneously felt unbounded, soul-inflating joy and bottomless, soul-wrenching fear, but want to, have a child.

If you've ever wanted to wait 20 years to tell some one "I told you so," have a child.

But don't expect to get, "I told you so," in 10 years--The Mythical Man-Month and all that.

Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

Don't listen to the naysayers. I have never had as much fun as I have with my kids. My wife just had our fourth, and it's great.

My two older boys are now old enough to start playing games. I just finished a round of Robot Turtles with my four year old, and my 6 year old and I are in the middle of a game of A House Divided. (We played a starter/intro game last week, and it was screaming good fun. See also: A House Divided With My Six Year Old.)

Kids are fun. They're a fresh view into everything that you loved when you were a kid. I like to say that, "Kids make everything new again." You see it through their eyes.

Having trouble finding a game group? Grow your own weirdos!

I guess I shouldn't mention Axl Rose wrote the song for his girlfriend.

I get that feeling about my daughter when I hear this song.



Then someone was all "It's about heroin, bro." And I'm all "NOOOO."
Don't care what it's about, I love the song.

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

I was working in a movie theater in 1988 and sweet child'o'mine was in the end credits of the movie "Bad Dreams". I heard the song about 1000 times. So when I hear the song I only think of one of the worst movies of the 80's
