What age would you 'freeze' your kids at?

If I have to choose one age, it would be around 7-8 months.

That's a tough question but I agree with you, Dana! I love it when they are about 6 months old. They are adorable, not quite mobile, and just so sweet and kissable. I miss that age so much!

I think it would be when my nephew was 4. That was when we started to really bond.

Six and seven were also good ages, too, except for the time he kicked me in the shin because I refused to buy him a CD. He made these wonderful drawings and would be the basis of elaborate games where he'd role play as a chef/restaurant owner, teacher and school principal, journalist, travel agent, etc. We plan our meals according to to the menu that he'd make. We made a "magazine" and somewhere in a hard disk are some videos of him interviewing pirates (he was both the journalist and the pirate), using a drum stick as a mic.

lol If I could "freeze" them around a certain age it would be about 9 years old. At that age they can feed, bathe, and entertain themselves but still want to hang out with mom and dad.

Hahaha-on the other hand if I could skip over a few years it would be about 14ish. ;)
