I’ve never gotten this quetoisn. A few friends have asked, Are you finished or do you want more? But always with both options listed and as a genuine quetoisn. But if someone did ask that, I think my instinctive reply would be that no one is ever ready to have children. Just like you’re never ready to get married, or ready to lose a loved one, or ready for so many of life’s big changes. If you wait until you’re ready, you never do anything of significance.But I can understand the incredulity, too. Nobody teaches us anymore HOW to parent. Which means kids nowadays are often very ill-behaved. In all honesty, I would have to say that most days my children ARE a burden because they’re poorly trained, so their attitudes stink and I’m fighting them all day long. Now I’ve blessed to be around enough godly families to know that this means something is WRONG and it’s not SUPPOSED to be this way, but most families nowadays don’t. They just think it’s a given that kids are brats, so who the heck would want multiples to deal with? From that perspective, it makes a lot of sense.Our children are only blessings in the day-by-day when we raise them to be. (Says the harried homeschooling mama expecting #4 who sometimes wonders if *I* am crazy!)I hope that didn’t come across wrong. I LOVE my children and I don’t regret them; I just wish I could figure out how to get them in order so we could ENJOY each other. But the perspective in the meantime means I can understand where the world is coming from!
