I haven’t got any kids,

But I do very much want them.

I want minuture little versions of myself and my SO.
I want to teach them little things and watch them grow into their own person.


I love the idea of a full, busy house & spending my weekends taking them around doing all there bits and pieces.
I love the idea of a big family around me my whole life, making traditions and all that jazz.

I went through a number of years in my late teens/early twenties where I was NOT about kids. I was pretty sure I’d be cool if I never had them.

Then I met DH. If I had my way, I could have a million mini-DHs but I’ll settle for two.

I don’t have kids yet but after my wedding next year the following year I do want to begin the process of starting a family.

I have honestly always wanted kids. I have two nieces and two nephews and I love them to pieces and they just make my heart so happy. I have always envisioned myself with a husband and 4 kids and two dogs lol. Not but seriously I love kids and I love that I will get to shape, raise and love on a little mini version of my fiancé and I.

The world is full of shitty people so I feel like I owe it to society and future generations to raise at least one decent person. 

Then there’s a very dark and selfish part of me that is terrified of being old and sick and not having anyone to advocate for my health or overall care. My boss is in his 70s taking care of his best friend because she never married or had kids so she’s all alone and it’s so sad.

peekaboobs :  I totally agree. I truly think D.H. and I will be able to raise good, well-rounded, intelligent kids who will be able to truly contribute to society. Not there yet but we’re working on it!

I’ve always known I wanted to have kids, biological impulse I guess too.

Dh wanted one and I could go either way so I said okiedokie.

I must say I’ve never had any interest in a mini me (or mini dh)—the most incredible thing to me about having LO so far is watching him become his own person, and it’s an honor to help him get there and come along for the ride.

I’m so maternal.  All I played with were dolls as a kid!

We want mini mes, carry on our generation and I also want to raise our  kids to do some Good in this world. To be outstanding citizens 😍

Because I met the man I love, we have gotten married and are confident we will be able to provide a healthy and happy environment for our kids. We both desire to have children, can financially provide for them, and are both caring, nurturing people.

Because, for me, it is fulfilling and rewarding and challenging in the best way possible.

Because I had no doubt that H and I would be a good team as parents. 

Because, for me, it’s about what really counts in this world, people, families and relationships. 

Because, for me, having children doesn’t limit my possibilities, it expands them. 

Because I love kids and had no doubt I wanted to be a mom.

I want to have kids because I’ve always wanted my own family. I also really love how it will give me the opportunity to take care of someone else. I think it will be fun to make lots of memories together as a family. Lastly, I believe it will be rewarding (and theraputic??) to raise my kids the way I wish I had been raised.

Honestly? I was young and bullied into it by an abusive ex. I am kind of shitty parent  because of it since I am way to laid back to be in charge of anyone and am the opposite of organized. I am quite frankly fairly  immature which is not great when your shaking young human minds…

But I try to make my kids lifes as awesome as humanly possible and hire alot of people to help with stuff I know I suck at like keeping them on track school wise and helping with housework. So my kids may not turn into the most well adjusted adults and will likely be mildly spoiled, they well certainly know how to build a pretty epic pillow forts and likely have memorized where the best rides are at Disneyland.
