Honest, respectful and I’m w/ okqueenbee on the bilingual thing. Fiance and I both speak french (albeit not so well as we used to) and we’re planning on enrolling our future children into French shcool.

Ditto, Laylabelle! Healthy, smart (we should be good–we’re both engineer dorks, lol, so maybe i should say not “too” smart, BUAHAHHA), athletic….also respectful and well-rounded (books, video games, play outside, board games…not just one thing they do, ya know). I want them to be well-behaved, too. I know that just b/c you raise your kids right, they’ll still do dumb things like have sex, smoke, do drugs, cut themselves, etc. I’m really scared to death I’ll have to go through the things my parents did with my brother. It was really hard on our family and I dont’ believe I have the patience to handle it well. I want them to think for themselves, too and I want to encourage that, not stifle it.

We’ve talked about this.

We want our kids to be well-balanced, well-rounded. We want them to like sports, the arts (theatre, music), be book smart (B average is fine with me) and street smart (know how to handle social situations).

We think being well-rounded is key to getting on in this world and while we of course want them to be healthy and happy, we want to give them the opportunities to try anything they want that will help them be more well-rounded people.

The very best they can be! They don’t have to be perfect. I just want them to be them!

Happy.

Also, for their sakes I hope they turn out to not be lawyers. 😛

I want any future kids with Fiance to be like the kids we already have. All are:

highly intelligent

athletic

funny

respectful

independent

confident

…..it’s funny but meeting each other’s kids is actually what made us want to have more. We figure if we can raise such great kids separately…imagine what we can do as a couple =)
