right now i dont not have children. heck im not even married. this is why right now i would think of having children as a nuisance and extra unneeded responsibilities. but i heard that once you have your own children your life revolves around thm- like on tv where you see the lone mother carry the baby as a burden but in the end she sacrifices her life to protect the baby.

I love my children to the utmost. They are my entire life and I love it that way. Many people say you can not make children you life but I can not imagine it any other way. I had my children to raise my children and I love every minute of it. It is a huge resposibility and take times and energy but it falls into place when the time is right. There is nothing more rewarding than watching your kiddos grow, say something or do something hilarious, or just watching them sleep. I can not imagine a life with out them!

Children do have a way of changing your life. It is up to you to decide if it is a good change or not. I loved spending time with my kids. I had my son just before I turned 19 and my daughter when I was 21. I felt like I grew up with them. I loved to play with them, and I know they loved the attention. As my children got older, I was the one who took them to all their activities. It was hard to do, but I was right in the middle of it all. I loved it, I was team mom, or coach, or score keeper. I was very active in the things my children did. I have no regrets. In fact, I feel sorry for the parents who are forced to work or who do not have the desire to cart their children around to all the activities or to spend time with them. Kids are amusing, to say the least. You never know what they will do, or what they will say. I feel that way about all children, not just my own. I raised more than my own children, and I love them just as much as my own. Children are huge responsibilities, but it is up to you to decide whether they are a burden or a joy.
