So my DH has 2 grown daughters, 27 and 31 and 4 grandsons ranging in age from 9 months to 7 years. I have an 18, 20 and 21 year old.
I want more kids, I would like to adopt a 12-14 year old. It will have to wait as my 20 and 21 year olds live with us currently. He says no some days and yes other days. Any of you have your babies become adults and want more kids? I am missing the 'send them to school' phase I guess, no 'homework help', etc. And I tried babysitting 3 kids (my oldest DD works with their mom). They were 7 and 9 year old twins and total brats, so I got out of that quickly... So am I crazy or the only one to want one more kid and not have to do the diapers phase again????
Ok Ladies, thanks soo much for your imput, it was nice to see others around my age have a perspective and twist on this. We have a full house right now, so it would not be any time soon, so we are still discussing it, and I am checking into volunteer opportunities like one of you (or more...) suggested. Thanks so much for the advice!!!
