I've got a 5 1/2-yr-old, 3 1/2-yr-old, and 23-month-old and have had a tubal ligation. I would say the answer is "NO!".

The Hokey Pokey. That's what it's all about.

I have a 31 year old and a 28 year old. I would also say the answer is "NO!" (Plus, I couldn't even if I wanted to....which I don't.)

We've been doing the whole "not trying, not preventing" thing. If we don't get pregnant by our second wedding anniversary then I may start charting ovulation and the whole shebang, but right now we are just having fun.... Though we'd like to start a family.

Certainly not pregnant and certainly not trying, as I sleep alone 25 days a month.

But speaking of babies, my newest cousin, Felix, was born today! Good thing I have so many cousins and so many new babies in the family, keeps my mom from pestering too much about grandbabies and it keeps my baby want at bay.

and then when we are both financially stable enough to start a college fund, pay for private school and do it all 100% responsibly in my eyes etc.. and life-stable enough to have a home with enough space, schools ready and child-friendly work schedules... then I might consider it

but until then, practice makes perfect lol

No and No, not until 2015ish.

I'm in a similar spot as Adrianne - I need more titles on my dogs before kids. Tho I will say we've had three babies born to women in our schh club in the last year and they're all back at training, one after a week, one after 6 weeks, and the third after 4 weeks! The club has considered putting up a kennel run for all the munchkins to play in while their parents are on the field! LOL

We'll be trying for adoption papers after Winnie turns two, but right now, we're just enjoying life as a three person, three dog family. After our last pregnancy, there will be no more growing inside of me, so we're being careful until Tricare will authorize tube tying, however, we do want another - but there are so many kiddos out there with no place to go and nobody to love them. We want to bring one into the love that this house holds. <3

Uhm, NO! I shove drugs into my system to prevent these things from happening. I, too, will continue with the practice aspect.
