Are you ready to become a mother?

June 12, 2010 6:31pm CST
I'm ready to have a baby, because I am not young. But I think it's terrible to have a baby. I have to spend the latter half of my life to take care of it. In fact, I want to do a lot of things in the future. But if I have a child, I haven't enough time to do them. So I'm in bad mood when the thought of the baby will occupy all of my time. Do you have this kind of feeling?

There is absolutely no denying the fact that having a baby will completely and utterly change your life. However, the changes that I had from becoming a mother when my daughter was born seven and a half years ago are not changes that I regret at all. I don't have as much time for myself as I did then, but I love having Kathryn there and I love fulfilling everything that she needs in her life. That is one of the best (and worst, depending on how you look at it) things about being a mother.

Thank you for your suggestion. I have a lot of friends who have been mothers. They tole me it's happy when you see the children grow up day by day. You will find differnet rejoicing every day. Maybe it's not tebbile to become a mother. I will try to become a mother this year. I hope everything will be fine.

Having children isn't compulsory. If there are other things you want to do with your life instead of having children then do that. I made the choice not to have children and I'm happy with that decision. You need to decide if you want children, not just have them because you think you're at a stage in your life when you should. Having children that you don't want isn't good in my opinion. In an ideal world no child should be born to parents who don't want her/him.

Thank you for your suggestion. I understant what your mean. But I'm afraid it's difficult to me to have a baby when I become older and older. I don't know how can I do, because we can't live in the ideal world. It's very expensive to raise a child in our country.

I have never been sorry i had my sons & never felt like they were a burden in anyway. I really don't think u are ready to be a mom.

You are right. I really am not ready to have a baby. But now I have to prepare to have one, because I am not young. I am older it's more difficut to have a baby. That is why I felt bored.

Yes, having a baby is such a huge responsibility that all mothers should be aware of. From birth to the time they will be big enough to fend for their own, a mother's responsibility in seeing to it that her child will live a good life is an extremely challenge. Mothers who lack planning and have several kids in a row could seldom have time to comb their hair or even go to the comfort room to pee. This happened to a friend of ours who had a baby every year for six years. One time she had to pee right there where she was because 6 babies without any helper was just too much to handle.

Thank you for your example. If you are still young, please enjoy everyday. When you have to have a baby, don't complain to accept it. Good luck!
