I gather I should have at least one child in about 1.5 years.

Got to take care of the marriage thing first...in 3 months!

I like the 'not sure' response to whether or not there are any kids at home or not. My response is 0 kids at, 0 kids total.

Some might consider one of my roommates as a child the way he acts sometimes... ;)

None, but if I had the financial means oh how I would love to have a couple. I love kids. I still can't figure out what the heck I want to do with my life, but being a teacher is one of my recurring thoughts of choices.

0 at home, but not for lack of trying. Fertility doc gave us ANOTHER med to try. 1.5 years of trying and no luck...Hopefully soon.

Two daughters -- one grown and on her own (except for the impending wedding...$$!) and one making college decisions as we speak...$$!). Guess I'll be working a few more years. :wacko:

I think some of you forumers are YOUNGER than my children!

Childfree, just like Helen Mirren!

She was interviewed by Morley Safer on 60 Minutes last evening.

Morely Safer: "Do you ever regret not having children?"

Helen: [emphatically] "No."

She went on to say that not having children meant having freedom and

she's glad she didn't have any children to get in the way of that.

I HATE that it is even considered acceptable to ask a professional,

successful woman such a question. We have a long way to go...

Daddy-O:

I know you don't mean to be rude, but how you posed this question I found a little offensive.

"How many children do you have? (Including adopted or foster)"

C'mon now, do you really think my mother would say, "I have one son and I also have six adopted girls and two adopted boys, so that's a total of nine children!"

No way....

Sophistic argument. You can do better, Nitro.

You'd be amazed at how many times i've been asked when i'm going to quit my career and have babies. It's highly inappropriate and highly unprofessional, but for some reason it's thought to be okay to ask a woman that.

ETA - that's not directed at anybody here, but towards the article. I get what she's saying.

We keep talking about this whole career crap when babies come up. Apparently, I'm supposed to stay home with the kids now. I was hoping for all boys, so when wife is away at work that leaves us boys to shoot off fireworks, play baseball, build forts, bb guns, ding dong ditch, banana in tale pipes, pretending to be mayor on the phone, etc... That's all my uncle did all day with my cousins -- friggin cake walk ... :rolleyes:. I still would appreciate a set of girls -- just way easy to deal with.
