  • Nope no need to because now my children are part of my dreams. I don't think I could ever leave my children to do something like that.

  • Hell no. I always think less of people on shows like that who leave their kids. IMO the only good reason to leave your kids is if you are in some type of service and you were in it before you got pregnant. I can't understand women who try to get in army or whatever after they have kids. To me it's a cop out. Yes, I said it. JMO

  • If i knew that my child would profit from me being away from him in the long run i would. If i could give him more and create a better life for him example: more money for college etc.. but i wouldnt' do anything to long term to where my husband and him couldn't go with me.

  • My three kids are also my dream since my early teens.. All I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a mother. I was not wild or out of control. I just wanted to nurture children of my own way better than how I was nurtured when I was a kid which was not at all. I had my first baby at 29yo and 25 years later I still have kids at home.

  • I've thought about it but I love my kids too much and it would kill me if I knew I missed something important in their life because I was so selfish. I think tho if another mom feels she can succeed then I say go for it, but I couldn't.
