If you knew how hard it would be would you have had kids?

If you knew how hard raising kids was, would you have had them anyway? I would have. I adore my children. I would not change anything except for the fact that they grow up too fast.

  • I would change the reflux issues and get rid of the epilepsy. But no, I would not do think I wouldn't have had the kids.

    I totally agree that they grow up way too quickly.

  • There are some days when I think, "wow, I was an idiot. I had no idea what I was getting myself into." And I honestly feel that I wasn't in the right place in my life to have a child. I wasn't at all.
    But, he is the greatest thing in my life, the most amazing person I've ever known.

    But, if I could maybe push it back a couple years yet still have him, I might do that if it were possible. But I'd NEVER give him up.

  • The only time I feel like I would, is when i'm crying my eyes out because my children are stressing me out. I guess it's mostly about me and not about them since I am responsible for their behavior. But after the tears have been shed and my kids look at me and hug me and kiss me, there's really nothing that could compare to that feeling of being a mother and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
