"Looking at the code it's apparently because I'm not an optimistic enough dad. But hey, if you had three pre-teenage girls, you might not be all that optimistic either."
I hear you . . . as I have two teenage girls and one 22 year old son who is back living at home. It is not necessarily the kids that are always the challenge, but being in unity with the wife takes more energy than working with the kids.
I think I need a rest . . . maybe in 5 or 6 years.

Oh, you think having three pre-teenage girls is difficult?
Wait until they are teenage girls...
There's an old saying in my family that teenage daughters are God's way of punishing men for having been teenage boys.
Maybe that's has point about optimism; "In two years... Hell WILL break loose" ;)
