Do you have a kid ????
1 Feb 07
I have 5 kids (4 boys and a girl). Ages are 11 (boy), 9 (girl), 7 (boy), 4 (boy) and 1 (boy). Nothing makes me happier than having these kids. They truly bring joy and fun into my life. Of course, having 5 kids is a financial burden and requires so much attention. But I'm not complaining, the pros outweigh the cons. And hey, I can still go to work and join the discussion in MyLot. Definitely, I won't have a 6th kid as my wife already had her ligation unless....... well, forget it.

hi sherylp, nice post! I could see we share things in common: (1) I also sometimes tend to view my little boys (4 in my case) as "monsters" and that they truly cause stress to my life; (2) That in spite of stress and agony caused by having kids, I (just like you) would not change them for the world. In other words, if I had to live my life all over again, I still would have (these) 5 kids. It's funny, just as I am composing this post, my 4 year old son has approached me 5 times already in the last 15 minutes asking to change the video he is watching from "Shark Boy & Lava Girl" to "Power Rangers" to "Harry Potter" to "Emperor's New Groove" to "Spongebob". Whew! Talk about stress....

I have 2 girls 8 and 6 1/2. I guess every mom tend to be soft hearted when it concern our children. We just can't decipher the feelings they bring out from us. I can't even described it in words. Most people who don't have kids yet still can't understand what were feeling. I even start to recognized what my mom was going through when I was a little girl myself. Hooray to all mom out there.

i have a boy who is almost 6-month old. i would have wanted to have 10 kids but because of the poor economy we have, i might settle for two. aren't kids just amazing? just the sight of them takes away the pressure and exhaustion, doesn't it?

Yes, I have 2 kids too, two cute girls 9 & 8 years old. They always made my life more significant, more beautiful, dynamic and was full of the colour of our life. I felt happy to be able to accompany them through to mature later & hopefully they were useful to the country and were loyal to parents.

I have three children. A twelve year old daughter who is definitely a little drama queen. An eight year old son who is your typical boy, always running around deliberatly antagonizing the girls and a seven year old daughter who wants everyone to think she's an angel, but I'm sure behind that angelic face lies the heart of a little devil. haha. They always make me smile and they make my life worthwhile.
