If you had known how hard it is, would you still have had kids?

Ok, let's get this out of the way. We all love our kids more than anything. But... if you had known it would be so hard, would you have had them? Would you have waited longer?

  • I waited until I was 30 and am glad I did! I enjoy raising my child. I wouldn't say it's hard in a bad way - I work hard at it so I do a good job but I like it.
