Yep ... it's like the Mos Totally Inapproriate Time... but when is d time right to have a $ 300,000 burden lol?! ( cost of raising one child and sending em thru college ... prob radically underestimated lol)

truth is I see th childless friends over my parents retiring and dying alone .... so sad .

Peeple w kids and grandkids r much happier more fulfilled and proud .

how do you new parents and potential parents feel struggling with these huge issues ? Are you ok with Ur food ? Do you scarf down your kids foods leftovers ? I can imagine so many nightmares ty

  • I thought you said you had fertility issues and that was your concern of getting with a young boy because he would want kids...

Well yes as a diabetic and super early excess estrogen caused breast cancer survivor I would be NUTS to consider carrying my own child ... however I saved my eggs so I can have my own kids whenever I want .

I'm not in the least afraid of being " old " as they grow because I'm not remotely old now ... ( thank God) .. However they are needy little creatures not to mention expensive ... and I'm just getting started in the career I've always desired and dreamed of . Which is also hugely demanding. And yes I prefer having kids with a partner ( though I see ever more divorces and horrible custody battles where the kids are used as hostages to get the more affluent parent to support the deadbeat one)

Shouldn't this be in the off-topic forum? And aren't you worried you're too old to start having kids? Won't you be nearly 70 when they graduate high school?
