Quite a funny childhood.  I’m married to a sweet-hearted troublemaker and a couple months pregnant.  My husband is thrilled about what nonsense we will soon have in our house, though he was initially skeptical if he wanted kids too.  Now he’s all on board and ready for ruckus.  Hopefully my slightly goody goody genes will dial back the trouble a bit but I’m guessing they won’t help much.

Oh wowza! What a ummm….colorful childhood!! LOL. Kids are definitely a huge committment. Agreed. I know I want them, but there are days I go back and forth. Luckily I have plenty of time of being childless before making THAT huge plan.

OMG! My mom left me at the mall when I was like, 5!  Apparently I had been making a fuss and she decided to take me with her at the last minute while the rest of my siblings stayed home with my grandmother.  She was in and out so fast at the mall that she literally forgot she had taken me with her.  She got all the way home and said, “Where’s Msgolightly?” to my grandmother, to which grandma responded, “SHE’S WITH YOU!!!”

My mom raced back to the mall, and there I was – sitting on the information booth counter with my legs swinging back and forth, chatting to the woman who worked there.  I supposedly walked up to the info booth and said, “My mom’s lost me.”

I’m SO glad I’m not the only one whose parents forgot about them!!  As I got older I seriously couldn’t believe my mom could do that…It was really starting to bother me!

Ha! Wow that is quite the childhood! I couldn’t even imagine…mine had some shenanigans and was full of homemade games/activities, but we were generally well-mannered and didn’t give our parents too much grief. Lucky them…

I’ve always wanted to be a mom and have kids. Same with Fiance. But I have no idea what I might be getting myself into once we get to that point…

@troubled- hahah oh that sounds like how we are going to be! I’m with you! And good luck with your future Little One. πŸ™‚

ETA: Fiance always wanted kids, but to be a dad…not a mom. πŸ˜‰

That is awesome.. hilarious.  You really pushed your little brother naked out the front door?? hahaha.  I’m the oldest of five kids, so my house was usually pretty crazy, too.  I definitely want kids, but only want 2.. I had fun growing up with my oldest brother, as we would always plan things like “tournament days” in the summer where we’d play each other in air hockey, skeeball/bball/pinball (thank you, Triple Arcade.. best Christmas gift ever when I was 9.. haha) and generally stayed out of trouble. My other 2 brothers, however, did not make it so easy on my parents. 

 

1 of the brothers got arrested at KMart for stealing batteries.  He always needed batteries for his portable CD player or something (haha, this was a while ago, obviously) and was tired of never having batteries in the house.  My parents were tired of constantly spending money on batteries, so they stopped buying them.  Brother’s solution? Just steal them from KMart.  My parents got the call from the police telling them to pick my brother up from the station.  My parents were eating dinner, and decided to take their time finishing & were in no hurry to pick him up.  Guess the cops didn’t like that because they kept calling & calling & calling for the next 45 mins while my parents just chatted & ate their dinner.. haha.  he also just recently set up a “fight club” in my parents’ garage when they went out of town for a few days.  He recorded it on my mom’s digital camera.  Smart move, bud.. haha.  This is also the same brother who had to have one of those child leashes around his wrist every summer when we went on vacation.. every time my parents turned their backs to him he was wandering off or running off to some other thing he wanted to do, and my parents lost him quite a bit.  Scary thing, losing your kid in Disney World! haha.

The list goes on, and the other little bro has gotten involved in many a thing, too.  Hasn’t discouraged me from having kids, though.. haha just something I’ve always wanted!

Mr. Coffee – We’ve missed you!  I’m so happy you have returned with your funny wit!  Laughing

Before I met Mr. Bumble, I had my mind set on adoption.  Not only do I have medical issues that have led me to be concerned about my long-term health not only during and after pregnancy but while caring for a thrid human being (the second of course being my future partner) as well.  But after lengthy discussions with Mr. Bumble, we have agreed that we will try once we are married because we both want to be parents but if we aren’t successful or if me being off my medication for too long is causing my health to decline, then we will explore adoption. 

Together, you and Miss Coffee will come to the right answer for you as a couple.  And although you were left at a gas station, doesn’t mean you will do the same to your own child!  Besides, I’m sure your parents only did that once!

LMAO….Your posts are the best Mr. Coffee!

I am 1 of 9 kids so you can imagine how many stories I can share but I would probably get carpal tunnel writing them all!

Back to the kids….I already have 3 children, 19, 15 & 11.  When I met my Darling Husband, it was LOVE at first sight.  I knew he was the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with BUT I was very worried because he had never been married nor had any children so I figured he probably wouldn’t want our relationship to progress any further as having more children is not something I wanted.  In my mind, I felt that if he decided to stay with me for the “long haul”, I was somehow “depriving” him of the honor and joy of one day being a Father.  I thought everybody wants to have children one day…WRONG!  Not everybody does!  Fast forward to today, we are now married and he still has no desire to have any children.  We had a very serious discussion before getting married about this as I didn’t want it to possibly become an issue down the road…..and we decided that if he ever developed the desire for a child, we would provide more babysitting for our “future” grandbabies!  (Hopefully that desire doesn’t happen for at least another 11 years as my eldest daughter (19) says she does not want to have her first child until she is at least 30!)

Yeah, it’s memories like yours that keep me from wanting them. But for us, the memories are actually alive because we already have 8 nieces and nephews who are various ages and cause all kinds of havoc. A part of me wants to make a baby with my husband that is perfect and biologically our offspring so we can love it constantly, but the other part wants to be sane and be able to actually sleep for the next 18 years!

Wow, you had quite the exciting childhood πŸ™‚ You have to see though with everything that happened you still turned out to be the man of Ms. Coffee’s dreams… I had quite the colorful childhood, as did my Fiance (he was always in trouble, one of his first words was a**hole, which he yelled at pedestrians from the front window) but it never deterred me from wanting children. Being the oldest I took care of my siblings a lot of the time and even at a young age it was an indescribable feeling watching my sister tie her shoes after hours of trying to teach her. Children are a wonderful blessing for some and just not the right fit for others πŸ™‚

Mr Coffee-My children (and grandchildren) are the most precious people in the world to me.  I couldn’t be prouder and happier to see them evolve over time! Just sayin’

I’m glad that you’re back! πŸ™‚ I love your posts!

Do I want kids?

Well let’s just say that your post just made my uterus put bars on the windows and hang a closed sign on the door . . .
