At 30 I find myself in the dilema of really wanting a child BUT also worrying that I may be too old. *shrug*
Ugh. That's what my ex kept saying. "I want to have a baby before I'm 30 and old." So, I'll respond to you the same way I responded to her...

30's not old! Say it again and I'll be forced to hug you. Angry

30 isn't old! I know a lot of people who have waited until after their 30's to have children. I'm sure your child would think you're awesome regardless of your age = ) My son always tells me I'm "the best mom ever!" (Freakin' amazing.)
Just spending time with your kids gives you "cool points."

"Just spending time with your kids gives you "cool points.""

Exactly. Kids don't care how old or young you are. They don't care about your job, your place on the socioeconomic scale, your financial ability to buy them endless inanimate objects or whether or not you start wearing diapers a few years after they stop.

They want exactly what you want... respect, compassion and friendship.

Well, until they hit about 13 or 14, anyway. Then everything parents do is "lame" and embarrassing and they "hate you! You never let me do anything; you have no idea what it's like to be my age!" *Runs off to their room and slams the door* lol

That wasn't our experience with our son or with the niece we raised from thirteen to eighteen.They always enjoyed going out with us, having their friends interact with us and, as a matter of fact, still do. That's not to say there weren't conflicts. There will always be conflicts when two or more human beings share a space. It's how those conflicts are resolved that makes the difference.

You might want to check the back of your children's necks for a USB port or charging jack of some sort. There is reason to believe your children may be cyborgs. Tongue

Like I said, I know the cons. I simply don't care. Undecided
My head's all loopy, I guess. Sad
