Justin Hamilton to be honored in September

With the birth of his third child.

Congrats, Coach!

As an aside, as far as baby announcements go, this is one of the better ones.

Great news. Sadly, my wife and I met fairly late and have only been able to have one. Would love to be in his situation now.

Someone, please insert "Chuck Norris approves" GIF or let me (the old guy) know how to do it.

Got it. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

Congrats on the sex coach.

Is this missing a comma?

the missing comma made me initially read it as "couch"

No chance at the hat trick, very sad. I sadly blew it on #3 so have had to buy a bunch of pink and purple ish because girls cannot wear boys hand me downs apparently...

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

I have 1 kid. I have no idea why anyone would want more than 1 kid.

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Ideal world, I would have had a son and a daughter myself, and then adopted another. But reality gets in the way of dreams sometime. I just came from a big family (a lot bigger than 3 kids) and am used to it. Also, as our daughter has gotten older, you just see the time when they will be away more and more. Really loved the 3 or 4 year range when things were so new to her and you would see on her face and sometimes hear the actual "wow" when she learned something. Also, the second-to-last person I dated (before my wife) was an only child. She said it was cruel to have only one as you don't have someone to grow with. I certainly would not call that "cruel," her words not mine, and would not criticize anyone for not wanting kids, but I get her point. Those were some of the reasons I wish I had more than one. But everyone is different. Just be the best parent you can be.

I grew up the youngest of 3, I'm just speaking from the parenting side, 1 is plenty to run me ragged, lol.

see on her face and sometimes hear the actual "wow" when she learned something.

My boy is in kindergarten now, and hearing him tell me all the shit he learns at school each day is awesome, you can literally see them growing in front you

Enjoy that time 757. It is the best.

I have one.

She's a little shit, just like her father. Needs a sibling just to knock her down a peg or two.

different strokes for different folks. I always wanted 4 until I had our first. Now I have 3 and wonder if 2 would have been a better number. But then as I see my son deal with being the only boy, I sometimes regret not have pushed for an even 2 and 2. My luck, I would have just gotten another girl (it was a 4-1 split in my family so the odds are against me).

For sure, and I'm definitely not knocking anyone who wants, or has more than one.

I just see how our lives are, one boy, almost 6, and I just couldn't imagine having another one, I'm eternally exhausted and broke as it is!

Same. I don't have the energy or patience for more than 1. Love her. She's awesome, but add another to the mix and I'd die. I would fall asleep at the wheel.

Nah, you would make it work. It's not that much different - once you're a parent you wear that hat forever. I'd have 10 if someone would raise them to toddler age and buy groceries. I've got 3 now and I'm done, but it sucks watching the last one grow up and not be your little one any more. It's bittersweet.

We have five, all adopted. Gluttons first punishment? Why yes, yes we are. Hoping for a busload of grandkids? Yep, we're still idiots who haven't learned a thing. Being broke all the time is easier when you get lots of hugs. I highly recommend it.

I have 2, one of each and the youngest of less than a year old. Wife and I are both middle of 3 in our families and always considered having 3 but now... it's hard to think about doing it all again.

What were the ages of your kids at adoption, Chachi?

We had 2 and then all of a sudden had a third. At the time it wasn't really planned and we kinda scrambled on what to do. Now I can't image life without him (ours are boy girl boy), and I can't help but wonder what his little sister or brother would be like. They are all so different and so perfect in their own way, it just makes you want to see what else you're missing.
