    Good news, @Robert Rankin the second kid is easier to raise than the first since you've been through it all before (unless you're insane like @AaronWebstey and have them simultaneously).
    The bad news is that you still have the first to take care of, too. It takes up way more time and energy. Your race is fuuuuucked.

    Adding: the maritimes are islands, and the people speak broken English. Could I hide some cash there? Backing an online gambling site?

    I am a big believer in Cape Breton converting itself into a dependency and becoming a North American financial haven. It would make their whisky and golf courses even more attractive.

    Second one is scarier in my opinion because I know what’s coming, and my son is relatively easy. I’m convinced the second will be spawn of Satan because #1 has been so easy. I’ve already written off the race. Wife has set a trap already telling me I should be okay she’ll have her sister here and I’ve already paid for it (as it is now kiddo will be 10 days old). It’s only 2.5 hours away so I could, in theory, drive down morning of and back after. I’d put the odds about 3% chance I’m there.

    This happened to me, beware. I never realized how easy 1 kid was until i had the second.

    I can't top two at a time (God bless you @AaronWebstey ), but my sister decided to have her first two - both girls and pretty much angels - then 8 years later she had a boy followed two years later by a second boy. They are good boys, but they are 100% boy and constantly trying to kill themselves and each other. An 8 year gap is long enough to forget just how crazy it is the first few years - also, chasing kids around at 38-40 years old (her husband (father of all of them) is almost 50) is much different than when you are in your 20's.

    I feel for my sister, but also am amused beyond belief at the circus they have going on.

    1=1
    2=3
    3=5
    4+=infinity I assume
    but the enjoyment is proportional to the craziness!!!!
    @Rash , I'm 54 and our daughter is 20, boys are 13/14 exactly 13.75 months apart. It's awesome and I really must say that I'm happy I waited. I don't think I was near capable in my 20's. Not saying I'm capable now.

    @AaronWebstey , is this child math analysis getting me any closer to playing fantasy triathlon, or have we devolved into the fact that it may be a fantasy to participate in triathlon for most of us......

    I've been a little busier than expected but I am still on this. Going to set up the demo site today or tomorrow.

    @Tad_Machrowicz - You obviously have a bit more energy than my sister and brother-in-law! Also, my bother-in-law will be approaching 60 when his boys are the age of yours.

    Also, for kid math - as Jim Gaffigan says, "“You know what it’s like having a fifth kid? Imagine you’re drowning, then someone hands you a baby." Think he said the same thing when he "only" had 4.
