If you had the choice.....

Would you have waited to have your children if it meant you could have become something more than you are, or are you happy you had your children and wouldn't change it for the world?

My answer:

I wouldn't have changed it for the world, even though I never got a chance to party or make something of myself or go to college. My son is my whole world, and he's the only thing that matters to me, besides my husband....

  • wouldn't change anything.
    because even though we were young, we didn't let it stop us. my husband graduated college when I was about 5 mos pregnant, and I'm getting ready to graduate this May. nothing to regret whatsoever :)

  • I was 29 when my son was born. He was a surprise, but a pleasant one. I was ready to be a mommy.

  • I am 44 and have two grown daughters. Our family has longevity so I expect to live another 40 or 50 years... with no children at home.

    I would not swap this for having babies in the house today, whatever difference that might have made to the comfort of our finances or the 'stuff' we could have purchased.

    I did have time to 'party' and got over wanting to way before I was 22. I have 'made something of myself' --I'm a very successful woman, mother, wife, daughter and friend. Now I'm building my business, writing and volunteering in areas I care a lot about. And I have two, successful full-grown children, too.

  • I did wait. I was 30 when I had my first. I had finished most of my education, was established in a wonderful marriage and was ready to add kids to my life. Now, I've got a great career and a wonderful family. I wouldn't have done it any other way.

  • Sometimes I ask myself this same question. Then my son comes up to me and gives me lovings and I know that I wouldn't change it for nothing. Yeah I would have loved to waited for a couple years cause like you I didn't get to party and have a lot of fun but I figure it was meant to be that I had him at this time.
