Congrats Jeff,
Your whole world is about to change. Dirty diapers, feeding time at 3 in the morning. Screaming baby at all hours of the day.
But its all worth it. I know, I have two of my own and they are great.

Congrats again Jeff....

Yeah. I already predicted that about half of our trips to parks will end with crying. And I bet I'm low.

You would think, but it won't necessarily be so. I was prepared for just such an eventuality with Ava, but in all the hundreds of trips to parks we've made over the years, I think she only broke down crying at two or three of them -- and one of those was when I took her through Waldameer's Wacky Shack when she was four....

Congrats to you both, Jeff and Andy.

I just remember being a kid and crying every year when I went to the park and *still* wasn't tall enough.

Congrats Apollo Andy. Yah, watch out for Legoland. The big store is right there at the exit. So after a long tiring day, its a meltdown just waiting to happen. And get used to half days at parks for a while. ;)

I mostly only do half days right now. Though if we were going to one of the big new-to-me parks (which is really just PCW and PKI) I might have to leave the kiddo with mom and do a credit whoring trip around the park.

I have a feeling the new addition, when a bit older, will reinvigorate your interest in parks. For me, I had almost lost interest in Disneyland, but now it's my home park.

My only problem is that mine is getting tall enough for the spin and pukes. And although I do want to humor him by going with him, I'm not really looking forward to it. I'll just try to redirect the attention to the coasters if possible. ;)

Congrats to all the upcoming parents. You have entered a realm that my OCD prevents me from overcoming. I gotta feel like im in a level of control in my life and I cant get past the fact that when you have kids, your control changes. Though my perception and reality may be slightly skewed.

We have decided to stay DINKs in our household mostly for what we have been called "selfish" reasons. We are very spontaneous and on a whim like to up and travel, which with children is not as easy to do.

More importantly I have nasty habits of obsessing about the issues in the world around me to the point I have a fear of introducing someone to it and feeling "blame" for it. Fortunately my wife just isnt interested in children either so it works out well for us.

Quite honestly I totally admire all those on CB who have children yet still experience the coaster fun and all (Dave comes to mind in his infinite travels this summer). I just somehow think I cant pull it off as well.

Maybe one day I will stop obsessing and see all the positives, but at this moment I break out in hives thinking about Pappa Ridem :)

Major congrats goes to Jeff and Andy from my wife and I..

Congratulations Jeff & Diana (and Andy too).

There is something magical about riding with your kids. All of a sudden you remember the great times when your parents took you on your first coaster. It was enough to bring a tear to my eye, or maybe the guy in front of me just spit. :)

Congrats Andy! Jeff and Diana got my congrats on his blog.

Kids are all different and you never know what you will end up with in regard to freedom. Some are just easy going enough to deal with just about anything, others might cry at the least little thing.

I took a four year hiatus from coasters and Cedar Point after my son was born. Decided it wouldn't make much sense if we couldn't ride the coasters (and back then the kiddie areas at CP were pretty B O R I N G).

We waited until he was tall enough for the largest coasters, which at the time was 48" and Magnum. By the end of the day, he'd ridden every coaster, including Magnum. At four years of age.

We only had one crying fit and that was because he was a half inch too short to ride Raptor when it opened.

Congratulations Jeff and Diana, and Andy an your bride.

Children are a blessing MUCH more often than they are a hassle.


Riding once again after 18 years of being too fat to do so!
