I hear you and my son is also a dive buddy so everything times three!


I look forward and dread if mine decides to dive. Buying a wetsuit every 6 months once he hits puberty will get expensive

The trick is to have more than 1... so as they get older the suit can be passed down and you can feel like you got your money's worth.... that and they enjoy telling the younger ones how when that was their suit they would pee in it all the time:).... great times diving with your kids. I have 4

Any old enough to be used a slave labor I mean help with home renovations and yard work.
Which gradient factors for kids do you suggest? Old/strong enough so they can work, but small enough that they don't eat too much (expensive)...

Exactly shortly before puberty, I'll bring them back as soon as puberty starts.

The 3 older ones (15, 17, 23) are all pretty hard workers, the 12 yr old is worthless just yet....but he tries, lol..

I'm still kind of a kid (at heart anyway) @ 37...
You got your first kid at 14 then?

Yeah, wetsuits are the problem. Thankfully, where I dive, they aren’t required year round.

Yep. When I finally did get my oldest a wetsuit, she promptly outgrew it. Youngest now uses it, so that saved a bit. Thankfully, seems like girls are less prone to gross each other out, so no talk about peeing in wetsuits. Except from me.
