Great plan! I love it.

That said we had our first a week ago, and she is unbelievable. Perfect little angel.

Medically speaking, isn't it difficult for a 43 year old to give birth to a healthy child?

Shit your pants and leave them on the sofa.
Ask if she's ready for five more years of shitpants.

Borrow an 8 month old from someone you know & keep it overnight for them while they go on an extended overnight date.

About 4 am in the morning, you'll have your answer !

Glad to be of help..................

We were only able to have one child, she is 22 years old now. As others will agree with it's not possible to love anyone/anything more than your own flesh and blood. We had planned on not having children but it happened and we are so glad it did. Who is going to pick your nursing home when the time comes!?

I guess I just assumed you would be included in the making....

The only thing we would change would to have her when we were younger. My wife was 34 and I was 32 when she born, you need all of the energy possible when they are growing up.

Happiest day of my life was when my youngest son grew up and moved out of my refrigerator.

You'll be 57 and having to listen to God knows what on your way to dropping the little bastard off at school.

Oh man, kind of sad really...

Her window is closing quick and her partner doesn't want kids...Not the greatest situation.

If I was in your situation I'd be honest with her and my feelings. Don't have a child if it isn't what you want. But be straight with her and tell her. She needs to decide if this is what she really wants and needs to find a partner that wants the same. Or, one of you lives with regret. Or, one of you comes to their senses...

Simple, really.....

Simple math...

42+18=60, then 4+ years of college 65. Then hopefully they don't come back home??

If you are okay with those numbers then.....

We had our son at 36 and feel like it was kinda late, we will be 54 when he is headed off to college. He is 12 now and we spend most of our time running him to something Karate, Inline hockey, ice hockey etc, etc,etc. might get our lives back when he starts driving.

As the others have said, you will not love ANYTHING like you love your child, it is hard to describe until you have one.

I'm 43 now with 3 boys, the youngest is 13. If you gave me another kid today I'd love him/her just like the others.......however I'd kick the living chit out of whoever gave the kid to us!
