So let's keep it really real here.
If we had kids there would be no way I could do what I do to the extent I do it.
And I'm being honest with myself here.
As you know Robby and I have plans to hire a surrogate to carry our child.
As you ALSO know...Robby and I are pretty good with planning things out appropriately.
We're 41 years old and I sometimes wonder what would be considered too old to have a child. We've discussed it recently and Robby doesn't think it's the age...but where we are in life when we GET to that age. LIke...will we be 45 and in complete and total control of our schedules so that we have as much time to spend with our child as we want to? Will our life be one such that one of us is either at home with or has a work environment such that baby can go to work with us? You know...an office with a nursery in it or an office at home with a mother's helper?
And I guess that makes more sense.
With technology the way it is today, as long as you have the money, you can have the baby you want whenever I believe. The only thing you should really concern yourself with is...will you ever have the time to properly invest in your child's quality of life?
I always find it amazing how different circumstances change one's outlook and perspective. Had we been having this conversation in 2009 I would never, ever, EVER have thought I'd seriously be considering a life without children. Now? I think the tide has shifted a bit.
At this piont I think it's 50/50.
