It's always going to be a trade off.

Money, kids, no time

Time, kids, no money

how much or little time, money and happiness I have with my two kids will be totally different to another 34 year old dude with 2 kids depending on a multitude of factors

obviously

FYIW my wife is a second grade teacher. She makes next to nothing. I make $51,000 per year currently, and won't make much more than that for another 3 years.

What kills me is people who have a kid and that kid is messed up from the start. And it drags the family down. I worked over at the childrens hospital for a while and you would see parents in there with teen aged kids that were in a wheel chair, on oxygen, barely able to hold their heads up and you could tell by looking at them that child was barely aware of their surroundings and likely will always be like that.

At what point can they say 'this one isn't working out' and not be considered a heartless *******. The family will be all but destroyed trying to take care of this kid that will never get 'better' and when mom and dad die, now this person will go from one state home to another, probably getting treated like ****

I guess you'll manage though, people generally do :bigthumb:

I'd be more worried about raising a child in Bodymore, Murdaland...

Congrats!

She's only 8ish weeks. We haven't even had our first post-conception OB appointment. Provided that she doesn't abort, sometime in May I'd guess.

yeah, my sister is 33 and still relies on our parents to pay her bills. has had endless different diseases and injuries, lots of time in the hospital. i also think she contributed to the divorce, dad has pretty much stopped talking to her because she stresses him out so much and is constantly asking for money.

I'm gonna wait until I get Vanster's opinion on this. I want real science backing this one up.

BeLiaL 10-02-2017 09:00

That you can say nurture affects genes, but then not think anyone can be born with mental illness, blows my mind.

KingSobieski 10-02-2017 10:40

So she's in Japan right now but is very sick. She's decided to sell her real estate business and fly back to the USA this month. She's requested I add a finished floor to my house (everything is just subfloor) and also that I get a real bed (i have a futon fold-out couch).
At the end of October I'll be taking a 5 day business trip to Argentina. Need to contact immigration lawyer and see what process we need to go through for permanent residency.

No, she stays with my parents most of the week and goes to daycare the other half to socialize and learn toddler stuff.

Daycare is maybe 12 grand a year so unless you have multiple kids, it's not going to save you money. Women these days don't even know how to be a SAHM, I'd rather have people who either went to college for it (daycare) or had tons of experience with multiple kids (my mom) get some exposure to her.

Again, I enjoy fatherhood, especially as the child gets older and develops a personality. I'm one of four kids, but I have no idea how my parents did it. I guess my house was utter chaos growing up.

At most I'd consider one more but that's it. I kind of like spending without regard to a budget or anything right now, so I guess that would have to change.

coombz 10-02-2017 15:39

yeah when you think about it, it's mind bottling how millions of mothers throughout history have been able to successfully raise their kids without a college degree of some kind

:nuts:

dubsack 10-02-2017 16:43

People making raising kids way harder than it needs to be.

I got lucky in that we found a daycare that was a husband and wife thing. He was retired and she had been running a daycare for a really long time. They were basically like another set of grandparents.

Your point about the cost of daycare though is spot on.

I do kind of laugh when people decry daycare as someone else raising your kid. They are only there for a little while and will be in school waaaaay longer. If you can't parent your kids with the time you have with them you just plain suck.

In Jugg's study linked above, I read that sloped forehead is 85% likely to be passed on by the male parent, I am sorry to say

:(

if true, can you imagine how subservient his wife would have to be? He is like the definition of misogyny. We'll read about him in a few years for "taking his wife down a peg or two."

As opposed to what we currently read about Falhawk "getting pegged by his wife a time or two".

Aren't you in your thirties and hiking around Europe begging Lambo owners if you can touch their car?

I was beside a blue Lambo yesterday at a red light. Furiously I jammed a piece of breath gum and started chewing, got the sugar out and plfut I spit it out at the Lambo's roof. It hit and instead of sliding off it just stuck there. For $450k you don't get frictionless paint wtf

Brasstax 10-03-2017 22:02

Have you pushed this chicks balloon knot in yet?

KingSobieski 10-04-2017 02:24

Last night we had talked about baby names and decided Kenta Ichiro for a boy and Rachael Noriko for a girl. I liked Kenta for a boy because its a Japanese name but works well as Ken in the USA and my uncle is also Kenneth. She just liked Rachel for a girl so that's what she wanted. Ichiro and Noriko are her parents.

She started to bleed last night and went to the hospital today. She has to return for surgery because not all the parts came out.

I return to Japan for a week in December. She's all alone right now and crying. I feel like I just ruin everything. Feels bad.

dubsack 10-04-2017 03:11

Oh surprise. No baby.

dodged a bullet, friend.

Brasstax 10-04-2017 03:47

Maybe want to give it a week until you try that balloon knot move.

Also - sorry dude. That's a terrible thing to go through. The only thing that heals that is another baby. Back to it champ.

coombz 10-04-2017 03:57

lol the slope probably aborted herself manually with a coat hangar because the idea of having Sobieski's retarded, terrorist looking child and living in squalor was not very attractive to her
