Because being a parent is the most challenging, exhilarating, frustrating, and ultimately rewarding experience I’ve ever had. I love being DS’s Mom and I want to do it all over again, with the luxury of having a loving and stable relationship, adequate finances, and a helluva lot more maturity this time around so that I can enjoy the parts of the ride that sucked the first time around.

I’m curious too, FI and I still not sure if we want kid.  His BFF is 39 and the wife is 40+, the past 10 years, they been spending money on travelling and good food because they knew they didn’t want kid.. 

We just found out his wife had a miscarriage and was a planned pregnacy, make me wonder what change them and why want kid all of the sudden.  Will FI and I change down the road? my family told me it’s good to have kid because I will have son/daughter to take care of me, spend time with me…….. hmmm,

I want kids because my family relationships are some of the most loving, fulfilling relationships in my life, and I can’t imagine not growing my own family to nurture and share my life with.  I think my husband and I have the patience and capability to be good parents, and I can’t imagine growing old and not having children and grandchildren in my life.  I want that dynamic in my life, and I want a chance to mold little humans into good people 🙂

I’m already a mommy of one and I LOVE it. I became a mommy at a young age (22) and I didn’t end up staying with her father. I want another child because besides loving being a mommy/step mom already, even though it is challenging and difficult (but hey that’s life) I feel like i have another chance at doing it “right” this time. My FI and I are getting married, we’ve built a home for our children/step children and we would love to have a little on of our own.

I’m one of those people who just always have wanted to be a mom.  It’s hard to explain, other than I know I would feel unfulfilled not to.  I’ve had a great relationship with my parents my whole life and I can’t wait to be a little family of our own.

There’s a lot of small reasons, but I have always known that I would be a mom someday. It’s part of my personality and dreams, I guess.

I have taken a large role in raising one of my young cousins (he’s 7). I have enjoyed playing together; tackling homework together; hell, even issuing discipline. I think that the relationship is a mutually beneficial, supportive, loving one. I look forward to sharing that with my own child.

@Mermaid1082:  +1 this is exactly how I feel as well.

I’ve just always wanted to be a mom and could not see myself not having a family of my own. I wouldn’t feel complete as a person without kids.

i feel like i would make a great mom. i love to nurture and encourage others to grow. i work with children with autism, so i feel like i have a lot of knowledge already before going into having kids.

My life would not be fulfilled if I didn’t have children. I feel that is the ultimate experience of being a woman, like nothing can compare.
