What makes somone "ready?" is it finances being ok, is it a house, what makes it "time?" is there even a such thing? Are we ever really "ready?"

Everyone has their own opinion on that. I feel you are ready when you can financially support.

That's exactly how I feel, but I know people who have said they want kids, but aren't ready? I have no idea what they mean.

I never would have been "ready" I believe if DD didn't happen by accident I never would have had kids.

I agree with health coverage at the LEAST!

Same here, I was sharing an apartment with SO's family I wasnt working he was, but the second we found out about DS, we both stepped up. He was honestly the best thing that could have happened.

I waited until I was older. I wanted to be sure I could support myself and a child, that I had met someone I knew would be a good dad, and also that I had gotten a lot of my own partying out. I had friends when I was younger who always missed out on parties and such because of their kids and I wasn't ready to give that up when I was younger. I sowed my wild oats, went to college, and when my ds came along I didn't care that my Friday nights were now spent in instead of out.

My SO and I never were into the party scene, so it was nothing we were going to miss. We had fun at home, doing stupid things and spending time with family. Always felt like it was weird but now I see it as a good thing .
