If you or your wife aren't at least 90% sure on having kids, my suggestion is don't do it.  There are so many times that it is hard as hell raising kids and if one of you had to convince the other, then there will likely be resentment.  It seemed like immediately after getting married everyone was constantly asking when we were having kids and acting like we were going to be too old even though we were still in our mid-20's.  Thankfully we both knew we were not ready to be parents.  We wanted to travel, stay out late, and sleep in.  You can't really do any of that once you have kids.  There came a time once we were in our 30's that we enjoyed being home more and both knew that we could be completely unselfish with our time and money.  We had a nice house, plenty of great experiences together as a couple, and were in a good financial position to be able to take care of a family.  I can say with absolute certainty that I'm happy with my choice to wait to have kids until we were both ready.

truth man. wife and i both waited until we were ready and it's gotta be one of the best decisions we've ever made as a couple.

'sleeping in late' means 7-730AM on the weekends, and your time isn't yours anymore.

i wouldn't change it though. my daughter is 4 and i'm like aw man i can't wait til she sleeps over grandma and granpa's house this weekend, and when she does, we both can't help but miss her and talk about her and the goofy stuff she does.... LOL

#2 is due at the end of september, and i'm getting anxious now because my SIL just had a baby and they look like zombies... LOL i totally forgot about the sleep deprivation and the 2 hour feedings and all that stuff. hopefully i can handle all that with a 4 year old always wanting to play n stuff.

any advice guys? I hope i have the energy bros!!!!

Man vacation away from the kids goes from "Hooray freedom!!" to "Remember when the baby did this/Look at this pic I took 3 months ago of the baby" real fast lol

 

We had our second last year when my first daughter was 1 1/2 and its about the same as before. Don't stress it

maybe i'm in the minority but i never wanted to get married or have kids. when i met my wife though, the more time we spent together, it dawned on me that this was the first female that i ever dated that didn't eventually make me wish that she had a mute button on her mouth. after a bunch of years, she started to bring up having kids more often and i could actually picture her as a fantastic mom. i agreed to start trying even though i was unsure. a few months later she was pregnant and a few years later we got married. it might not be for everyone but i love being married and having a kid. i love having our own little family unit.

That's basically us every night...  Long day, can't wait to put the kids down and relax.  Promptly get in bed and start talking about the kids and looking at old pics/videos of them on the phone.  Really looking forward to a date night, but as soon as we sit down at dinner all we talk about is the kids and can't wait to pay the bill and get home to see them.

it's a vicious cycle-

can't wait to get away from the kids (date night or whatever) and when you do, all you do is talk/worry about them and hurry home.... laugh.gif

when you get home- you can't wait to have another 'date night'..... laugh.gif

Monthly date nights has been a good success so far. Wife hasn't been complaining about no time spent together for while. Only thing left to improve is trips by ourselves. "Hardest" thing is finding somebody to watch the kiddos for a couple of days. Second hardest thing is planning everything since my wife doesn't have a clue what she wants to do other than "something". She kills me when she does that

hope it's not one of those

her: i don't know what to do
you: let's do this
her: no
you: how about this
her: no
you: (suggest something you know she wants to do)
her: i guess, but only if you really wanna go there (or do whatever activity it is)

my wife kills me when she does that ish.....

That's our convo every time we talk about what's for dinner.  She says she doesn't care then proceeds to shoot down 2 or 3 of my ideas and tells me EXACTLY what she wants!

She's the picky eater out of us, too!:{

This year my daughters 1st birthday landed on Father's Day so I spent my Father's Day at Disneyland. We had a great time, it was pretty empty too which made it even better. Last year she was born a hour before Father's Day.


Got annual passes for the first time and we'll be spending a good amount of time there.

As far as vehicles this is my baby

My daughter loves it I'm guessing since she can see everything. My girl drives a Ford Escape. She had a Mazda 3 before but after a few months we traded that in and got the escape.

Still need to add some style to it but the gas is great on that thing and it surprisingly has a lot of room. When we have #2 I don't think we'll have to upgrade. We probably will though cause I really want a 4Runner laugh.gif

My doc told me it'll take about 30 days for the reserve sperm to be reabsorbed back into my body so I'll have to come back to give a sample to make sure everything is all good. But still........................soon

Sometimes i feel im too hard on my daughter in general and i hate it. I feel as if i treat her like shes a boy, growing up with only a little brother this "girl" thing is new to me.

Like ill catch myself after and try to hold back but sometimes it just naturally comes out
