Hehe I like this. Pretty much sums up my outlook and makes a good point of knowing yourself and your partner enough to know when you are ready to have a kid.

This made me so much more comfortable with our decision – just reminds me that everything is going to be ok – even if we don’t have that 4 bedroom house in that suburb I always dreamed of…that’ll come!

@Daisyb:  good share. I only dated guys who wanted children by the time I was 32. I also only dated men who knew I want a career so we’ll have to share the work. I found my partner though and can’t wait!

Also, my mentor once told me that there will never be a good time for children. You make it work.

I love it! Especially the one about the house. That’s the great things about babies–they don’t even care who’s taking care of them! As long as someone is.

I work with infants! I watch the parents of a 12 WEEK old go “Okay, baby! Be good! We love you! We’ll be back soon!” But he’s 12 weeks old. He doesn’t really care what you do as long as he gets fed!

@Daisyb:  Thanks for posting this! We are definitely planners and during the TTC process have realized that we cannot control everything.  I have to tell myself that we don’t need our forever home now just so I can have the perfect nursery, or that the next promotion won’t matter in the long run
