I dont have any kids yet but we are planning on ttc in December. One of my friends and I were talking about my plans and I was nervous b/c my dh doesn't make alot at his job and we're barely getting by----but we're surviving together. We pay our bills on time and its hard, but theres really nothing left over to just play with...however with the economy the way it is, nothing is really going to get easier. So the point is, my friend who is a mom herself to a 2 year old, told me some advice. She said that if we wait until we have money to have children we'll never have kids. Generally speaking, its true. No one is ever financially ready unless your a celebrity. In the real world though, I think you know in your mind and heart when its time. Everything else will just fall into place.
