Worst... Feeling... Ever...

I've always said that having a daughter is the father's punishment for ever having been a teenage boy. Even when your daughter never causes you any problems (like ours), you just know that there are guys out there -- none of whom are good enough for her, btw -- who will try to take her away from you...
Blogging will be non-existent the next couple of days as I take my precious oldest child off to college. I know we raised her right, and I know I can't keep her home forever; but dammit, I sure want to...
While I'm gone, please check out the wonderful blogs to the right, and especially keep an eye on our new submarine group blog, Ultraquiet No More, for the latest happenings and sea stories from the world of submarines.

Going deep...

I have this hilarious image of you parking a nuclear submarine in the koi pond in her boyfriend's back yard, most of the 453 feet sticking out but with a water lily thrown on top for camouflage, torpedo tubes glistening darkly in the Idaho sunlight, with you peering ominously through the periscope at his every movement as he quakes with terror going through his every day life.

Hilarious!

Don't worry Bubblehead, it certainly won't be a submariner.

I'm thinking maybe a Naval aviator, though. Probably a "Top Gun" type. -LOL

....Which is why I pray for boys. They are soooooo much easier to take care of.

I'm still sixteen years away from that moment with my daughter, but I am NOT looking forward to it.

If your daughter's even a fraction of the good egg you are, Bubblehead, then you have no worries!

Hmm. I don't think he's worried about *her*; he's worried about all of *them*.

i made it through the process. and i only got a little grey. i figured nikki would be party girl once she was out from dad's scrutiny. she graduated with a double major, and is now teaching developementally disabled kids, AND working on her masters degree.
it sure was lonely though. i thought i'd be glad to get an extra bedroom freed up for a library, and ended up leaving all of her stuff just like it was when she left for her to come home to on breaks.

Wait a minute, Alex; remember "Tiny Bubbles" was gone on 4 six-month deployments (NOT cruises) so how can she be like him? It is her mother she takes after. It is our middle child I am worried about after all HE is just like his father.LOL Our youngest will be forever our baby.
