    27, a year older than my mom actually. My second was born about a year and a half later (I joined this site pregnant with my first actually).

    So this fertility doctor was a woman- you so seem like the knee to the nads kinda girl....

    I came from a blended family, my brother and I adopted and the girls made on site as it were. All things considered you have what most folks wish for- boy and girl- semi normal so far, looking like they will at least graduate high school.

    Best of luck for the future.

    Never, but I've been a contributing partner of a few abortions and miscarriages.

    At one time we "fade away". But our children and grandchildren replaced us. From you, only little bit of ashes ...

    That is not implied at all.

    I've noticed that you've been one of the most active members in this thread. But you haven't responded to the poll. Why is that?

    I'm 29 and not a parent yet.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Thanks and the doc was male. I am trying a new approach in my violent tendencies. . Both want to be enlisted, but due to my daughters back surgery (fusion) the military considers her "disabled" even though she can do everything. I guess having titanium rods, screws and pins in your back disqualifies you from serving.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    The math doesn't work here. If you were 3 months along when your son was 7, then he was 13 months old when she was born.

    Do I have that right?

    I found out with my son, who came along when I was 38, that it is very different when the kid is yours.

    I used to have fun messing with kids heads and sending them home to their parents. This kid doesn't go anywhere. I feel a huge responsibility to make him a good human being, and he is fighting me the whole way.
