right at 40 when we had our first.
Best accident I ever made.
35. One kid, two in April. She’s my world. Next month will be my wife and I’s 13th wedding anniversary
And since you asked, my daughter is currently in training for the olympic speed walking team (USA!)
One beautiful, funny, intelligent, 18 month old girl but planning on at least a couple more. Being a parent is the most fulfilling thing I can imagine in life.
two boys, one girl and grandchild #3 in less than a month.
3. Girl then two boys. Big gap between the girl and the boys. Had the girl in a tiny apartment. Not best place for a second one. Had the boys when we bought a house. A fourth between the girl and the boys would have been nice though. Especially if it was another girl. My daughter would have loved a sister.
My boys are awesome but having a girl first was really fun.
Two girls, 21 &19. Two step sons out before I came in. Two grandsons.
Wifee has produced four different children although the eldest boy & girl kind of favor each other emotionally.
I always wanted to be a dad; I’m adopted. Every guy I know whose adopted has the same desire to provide for a little one.
I'm 41 and have no kids. I raise 2 nephews like my own but I can't hit them when needed.
I know that feeling well. My adopted parents sucked. I always thought I could do better.
Hannie, I think you wrote you’re not feeling it. It’s your body and your choice.
My eldest doesn’t feel it and probably won’t. There’s a lot going on here that’s not coming out here!
I got married and became a Dad at 40 after a really wild fun life and my wife has had to pay for it.
She tells the girls: get your yay yahs out before the babies come and you will be good.
Anything deeper is pm territory.
Zero. We'll see, I kinda like how things are.
I have always been Daddy's girl. Hunting, fishing, softball, operating one of his TLB's at his construction sites. Mommy always accused him of trying to make me into a boy LOL.
Didn't you discuss this with her before you got married?
She is beautiful.
I love kids. I build sandcastles with my neighbors' grandchildren for hours when they visit. The problem is I'm not ready to get married again.
2 girls, then a boy.
11 grandchildren (6 girls, 5 boys)
One son... 19. I was almost 30 when he was born. Great kid. Army MP, straight arrow, a much better goal setter and planner than mom or I ever was. Makes us proud every day.
Married 20 years and wouldn't change a thing. The “ups” are great, and the “downs” built character. Her pregnancy was complicated and his birth was early (31 weeks) and that is why we didn’t have more. I am good with that decision, but when he left for the Army I sure wished I had another one!
Being empty nested has been the hardest part of raising a child, by far.
None, as fate would have it.
However, we're "Aunt MAG40" and "Uncle MAG40" to about 40+ kids belonging to our friends. They range in age from about 6 months to 35 years or so. We're close with all of them having babysat them multiple times over the years, from a few hours up to two weeks. (In fact, we're babysitting one of them right now as her parents had to take her little brother to the hospital last night because of the flu.)
It's been great being so close to each of them for so many years. Even though we had to help bury three of them due to various childhood diseases -- decades later eyes still swell with tears -- and some of the adolescent years were a challenge with a few of the others. But overall, almost to a one they have turned out to be terrific kids/adults.
Being the favorite Aunt and Uncle is alot like being a grandparent: we get to spend time with them, spoil them a bit, act as a neutral advisor when needed, and teach them a few things an overwhelmed Mom & Dad don't always have time for. Then we get to send them home. Oh, and no tuition payments.
We count ourselves hugely blessed.
Two boys 34 and 31. As of yesterday, 3 grandkids
Take a bullet for these two?
Gladly and without question!
Pic was Apx. 10 yrs ago now he towers over her...... but he’s still on the payroll and she isn’t- so she wins!
None. Always wanted several kids but the getting married part never worked out for whatever reason. Still wish I had kids but, oh well.
