Oh man...I stink at writing stuff, lol. I never used to want kids growing up. I always said that I'd never have them when I was growing up. And then one day...bam! It hit me. I want a baby...I want at least two but would be way more than happy with just one little healthy booger. What difference would it make to my family? It would mean the world. We've both wanted children together since we first started dating. He is going to be the best father I could have hoped for for our children. He's great with kids and I love watching him with our friends kids...its about time he had his own. I feel bad for our friends kids, lol...they'll no longer get as spoiled by us when we have our own because we'll be too busy spoiling our little one. It would complete our family to have a baby of our own. Also...my english mastiff needs a child of his own to play with, lol...the neighborhood kids are afraid of him because he's so big, lol.

***A HUGE thanks to marriedc for the awesome siggy!***

i want a child because i want to love someone more than i love anyone else in the world.

i want to see the look of wonder in my child's eyes as he or she experiences new things. i want to encourage my child to expand his or her horizons. i want to teach my child the value of hard work and the rewards that it brings. i want to teach my child compassion for others, especially those that are less fortunate. i want to teach my child to be a good person, to respect others, and to make this world a better place.

Why do I want a child? Have you ever seen a child's face light up as the discover something new? Have you ever had a child so excited to see you they couldn't contain it? I have, but not as often as I would like. As a parent, I would get to experience both of these things daily. I would get to make a difference in my child's life as I watch them grow up into an amazing adult. (Because, I'm sure they will be in my eyes!)

DH is fantastic with kids. Even when we were dating, I knew he'd be a great daddy. Kids I've gotten close to over the years now see me and immediately ask where he is and get mad if he's not there! He wants to be a daddy so bad and I'd give anything to make his dream come true.

How would it change my family? Well, my cat would be mad for a while. Ok, seriously, we would have more laundry (baby clothes + cloth diapers). My boobs would be bigger. We'd not have to explain all the toys we have to guests. (We have kids over frequently.) We'd finally have the spare room emptied out. We would spend more in gas (playdates, mommy and me, etc.). I would finally break away from spending so much time on the computer. And most importantly, my home, would be even more love-filled than it is now. The whole atmosphere would be happier because we would finally have that baby we've spent the last four years trying for.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

Nothing in this world means more to me than having a baby. To be able to raise a child is THE greatest privilege in the whole entire world. I love my husband dearly, but I want to know a greater love that can only be found in the love between a parent and their child. To experience a child growing up before your very eyes, day by day is beyond joy! Watching and guiding them through life’s tribulations and highs, and to see them go from a precious little baby to an adult and know that you had a hand in that is PRICELESS!
I want to be able to pass on what my parents instilled in me; I want to have that chance. DH is beyond wonderful with children, I want to be able to give my husband the child he sooo longs for. I want that deeper love that comes watching your DH hold his child, and fall in love all over again! I want to be there when my child skinned their knee and needs someone to kiss their boo-boo, I want to hold my child in my arms till they fall asleep, I want watch them take their first steps, I want to be woken up in the middle of night because of a bad dream, I want to sit on the sidelines cheering my kid on, I want a child of my own.
Besides the sleepless nights, a baby would bring my family sooo much love and happiness.

Thank You for the BEAUTIFUL Siggy .:Shortcake:.

My reason for wanting a child is very simple. I want a child so that our family will be complete. I also want to be able to help guide and teach this special little one in the ways of our Lord. I want to be able to pass down family traditions and to help carry on each (mine and DH) of our family names.

Our lives would change dramatically. DH and I would no longer be thinking of me, me, me. We would be devoted to this child and less selfish; which, for us, I think it would be a great change!
