Well today I found out I am having a baby girl! Pretty stoked!!! :)

Anyway! I was curious, do any of you guys have children? want children? Someday or not ever planning on it?

What do you think about the whole thing?

Congrats!!!

I don't really plan on it. I plan on having a rather mobile life, and don't want to be tied down . I may adopt someday, but would never have biological kids for various reasons.

Gratz, first off. :)

Now, onto your questions...I do not have kids. I do not want kids. And I do not ever plan to have kids.

Ever.

I hate kids. Always have. Maybe it's because between the ages of 12-15 I was essentially forced to be around an adult friend's terribly behaved children. That set me off of having kids for about...a lifetime.

You're having a baby girl? Congrats! :fap:

...

I do want children, but I don't at the same time. I don't want them to end up anything like I have. The other part of my brain is telling me I want children so they can become what I could not. :Panic:

I want to do a bunch of things before having children though (if I even live long enough =p), so it'll have to wait.

I can see where you are coming from. I worked daycare for two years and left because it got so stressful and just hated the way they ran things. I walked out of there never wanting kids, I did before, but after that horrible two year experience with some rotten children, I decided no.

But things changed when my sister had two kids. They are the most awesome kids you will ever meet. And they slowly started changing my mind.

As long I raise her right, I don't think she will have the same problems the children had a daycare. I learned a lot of do's and dont's there.

God I hate daycare.

Congrats! Few things in the world like a kid, both good and bad. ;) I don't have any kids currently, I plan on them someday though. And yes daycare sucks, if at all possible try and stay away from it, hire a personal babysitter or best yet, stay home and be a parent. I know that probabley seems old fashioned in todays culture but the differences I've seen in children raised by a parent and raised by daycare are vast. Nothing can take the place of a parent spending time with their child.

Yes, I believe staying home with the child is the best! Me and my sisters were raised that way, so it's something I always wanted to do. If worst comes to worst, and I have to get a part time job, I had a few family members offer to watch my child, which makes me really happy. I just couldn't trust a random stranger.

[COLOR=SeaGreen]Children are one of the greatest things that can happen to you! It is especially intriguing when you get one that just seems to make you happy no matter how your day went. Or even when your day was already great, she makes it even better. Any day spent with her is a good day! You will find yourself thinking about her all through the day because she just brings out the best in you, and everyone around you. Whenever you think of true love, or true beauty, she is what you think of. Oh, I could go on all day long, but you did not come to read a wall of text. In short, enjoy your daughter, because she could very well be the best thing that has EVER happened to you!

I once felt the same way as you do.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=SeaGreen] Oh believe me, this will not last forever. It will all change when you end up with a child of your own. Even if she was unexpected, she will instantly change the way you feel about yourself, and the world around you. The first time you hold her in your arms, helping with school projects, taking her to the playground, playing with her, reading her bedtime stories at night, these will be the highlights of your day. You will even find yourself looking forward to these times spent together. [/COLOR]

Grats! I do not have kids, and don't plan on having kids for a little while, though I definitely hope to someday.

I've babysat kids and been around friend's kids enough to know that no kid is born a total delinquent, it is the parents that make them so.

The one thing that would scare me about having kids is that they might be subjected to the torture of things such as junior high, times in my life that were definitely painful.

One thing I suggest you buy is a very portable video camera, or even just an audio recorder. Kids truly do say the darndest things....

Congrats!

Honestly my girlfriend and I are both completely uninterested (and sorta repulsed) by the idea of having a kid. Neither of us really like kids.

I was surprised (and happy) when she told meh she felt like that. Most girls I know look forward to it.
