Life decisions that people have to make are never simple.
The importance of the initial decision should always be examined over the long run.
Memories made and cherished are sure to be tempered along the way.

Should I get a Dog

. . . or have children

that’s great Karson!
but for an answer…Definitely children because they can laugh with you when you’re done crying about all the damage they will invariably inflict on your possessions.

I call getting the grandkids a puppy getting even. Throw a little candy in the mix and a few noisy toys and you have it made.

Karson, with the options you are showing there, I’d say neither. Buy another tool for the shop, besides you have a great son already. Just my two cents. But gosh look at the choices you have. mike
