or I'm not sorry I slept with that jerk because he gave me my baby. Or I am glad I had sex young because I had my precious child... yadda yadda yadda...
My question is: Isn't that a cop out answer? I mean if you never had sex you wouldn't know what you were missing baby wise and to say if you had had a baby with a different person you wouldn't have the same child... well, yeah but you wouldn't have another child to compare it to. See where I am going? What do you think.

Yes, cop out answer. We ALL love our kids... and can not imagine life with out them. But Im sure if they were honest they would tell you that they rather have grown up, had a NORMAL high school experience, gone to college, and been a settled adult and THEN had this beautiful child.
BUT since they wouldnt have had that exact child had they done it all in the proper order.... it almost feels mean to say they wish they had done it that way... almost like a negative toward that child. But it isnt.
And the fact of the mater is... you can not change the past. It is what it is... so maybe it is a way to deal with what is.
And the most important thing... is that they are good parents NOW... no matter how they became parents.

My husband and I were just having this conversation the other night. Well, something similar. When I had my 1st daughter I wanted to be done because I had a boy and a girl and thought it was perfect. Then I got pregnant again and it was like wow I can't even imagine her not being here, I'm so happy I had her. Well, if I had never gotten pregnant again then I wouldn't KNOW her. But now that I do, I wouldn't want it any other way. Maybe that's what people are saying.
