When did you have your first child? Would you do it again? Is it hard going to school, working, and raising a child?

  • I was 25 when the first was born. I had the 2nd at 27 while back in college. I had the 3rd at 36, working and feeling too old. I wouldn't change a thing. My guys are 25, 22, 14, and fun. It was a challenge sometimes, but my husband was always there to tag-team with me.

  • i had Chloe when I was 18 and still in high school. I think I would wait until I was done with high school; it was REALLY stressful having to care for her and keep up my GPA, graduation felt SO FAR AWAY. I didn't work though, and my [fiance] at the time [now husband] worked, I did not.

  • 27--in school when I found out. Stopped for 1 year to have her now working part time and will be starting back to school soon. I actually wish I had her sooner and then I could really focus on school and finish in a timely manner.

  • We cannot tell you what you can or cannot handle =\ If you ask me, do whatever feels right for yourself and your family at the time =] No matter what, life will go on.
