I have no children and I'm already put off by other peoples kids.
Yes because the baby part is the easy part! You get a slight reprieve around 6-12 and then the teenage years hit and it's like the terrible 2's on friggin steroids!
Puts you off sex so you don't accidentally conceive another! :)
i certainly don't want another baby while this one is still a baby. but a couple years down the road, when the memories of the tough times fade and we begin to miss having a baby in the house (if we begin to miss it), then it will be another story... but there is no need to feel selfish for not wanting another child...
No, wish I could have more
The hardest one.... if she gets herself out of bed.... you need to just place her back in bed, without eye contact, without saying anything, just put her down and leave...and if it's crying...ignore it. It seems harsh, but it is the best way to get the point across that she is expected to sleep. Also try a really regimented night time routine so she is fully aware that bedtime is approaching.
you might have to do the placing back in bed dozens of times, but stay with it.
Babies are annoying but I raised my nephew and I'm proud of that little bastard
