Dee, that is a good an important one. Believe me, when I was 19 and having my first, I never envisioned myself having six children; two was what I wanted at the time, maybe three. It wasn't easy during the early years, my first husband and I struggled while he began his career in law enforcement and went back to college with four little boys under the age of six. He worked nights so I could go to college during the day and the boys never went to day care (would have cost a small fortune at that time anyways). I became a high school teacher and things finacially became easier with two good incomes but the time apart due to different work hours and the strong commitment we both had to our jobs eventually led us to divorce. We both remarried. My second husband is a school business administrator and makes a good salary. Unfortunetly, my first husband was diagnosed with kidney cancer and pa__sed away quickly within a year. My boys went through hell that year and it really changed myy outlook on life. But their father did make sure his boys were provided for before he died. My second husband and I have a son together too (that makes 5 and after my first husbands death, I decided to stay home and "nurse" my older boys back to sanity and spend some real quality time with my 3 year old that I was never able to do with my older boys. My husband and I decided that if we were going to have a second child together, now was the time as I am 39. Finanically, we are very stable now, my older boys would like brand new cars as graduation gifts (like all their friends) but I think working hard and them getting a job to buy themselves a second hand car will mean more to them. Sure, if I went back to teaching we could live a lot more comfortable but we having everything we need (annual vacations and international trips we do yearly)and I have peace of mind and cherish my time with my children now unlike what I did when I was younger.
