I've met people who as kids "never" wanted kids, but changed their mind when they got older. Me, personally, I wanted to be a mom one day for as long as I could imagine, but I don't the drive really kicked in until I married the man I love. Then suddenly I knew not only that I wanted kids, but when and how many LOL Growing up, I always loved kids and they always loved me, although to this day I still think maybe I'm better with other people's kids than my own O.o

I've wanted to be a mommy since I was like 2 or 3 years old and played with my dollies. It has always just been what I was going to do. When I started working full time in childcare I think I learned how I wanted to be a mom, I had wanted to have babies starting right after we got married, but i knew enough to wait until we were more settled... so 6 years later it's SOOO the right time!
I was a very driven young lady, kept my head in the books from first grade on & excelled in school. At 17 I graduated and on whim married my HS sweetheart. The moment I turned 18. at that point College, getting nursing degree & being an army wife was the only thing I wanted. Honestly kids were never in my plan, (actually never crossed my mind) I got a divorce at 20 due to unforeseen circumstances & met my current DH,( kids were still not part of my plan). I was on the patch & we used condoms religiously, I ended up pg with my DS, it wasn't till my 20 week u/s, did it hit me I wanted my baby and I wanted multiple babies with my DH. 5 years later we are waiting on #3 to arrive in July. I love being a mommy & I'm so glad I was blessed when I was.
I always wanted to be a mother. Every since being a young child it was just something I couldn't wait for. Wanting children is a big reason DH and I got married. We felt it was the first step on our journey to having the family we wanted. We started TTC 3 months after getting married.
From as long ago as I can remember
I was such fan of creating families and playing with my dolls growing up. I think the last age I remember playing with one was age 12
Don't think you'd see many 12 year olds playing with dolls these days.. haha
But when I knew what date/time I wanted kids was when Scott and I were happy enough and settled enough in life to know we could care for and raise our 1st lil bubba
Uhmmm...never. lol. Ash was not planned. It was soo exciting though and I'd never take it back. But I did not decide I wanted to be a mom before I was pregnant with her. And even then I was really nervous and not sure I was cut out for it. After her I wanted NO more kids. Ever.
Then I had the baby bug (thank you hormones) and along came Matthew.
Got the baby bug again..and the mirena. No more babies for a long time!
