If you are married, How many years did you wait- if any - to have children after getting married?

Are there any things you miss doing before kids?  If so, what?

Is your life now what you expected it would be 10 or 20 years ago? 

At what point do you self actualize?  Do you believe in it?

What's on your agenda this week?

Frankly, I wouldn't want a parent judging the parent of a special needs child like that either. Signed, A parent with a special needs child myself.

Not quite two and a half

No, not really.  When the kids were little, I missed going pee by myself.

Better than I had imagined

Do I believe in what?

Getting kids ready for a trip, laundry, work.............

I have a child with special needs, and I am not judging the parents. They are remarkable people whose daughter has accomplished mor in life than any professional ever predicted she would. If you are interested, the Mom has written two books about it, "The Siege " and "Exiting Nirvana." They have also helped the daughter to publish a book of her art, entitled something like "The Art of Jessica Parks." The Mom is now deceased, but she has been a role model to me almost all of my life.

Not really, Thardy. I'm fascinated with the autism spectrum and my undergraduate major was linguistics because at one point I wanted to work with aphasiac children. I did do volunteer work in a special needs aphasia classroom for two years. I'm no expert, but I'm not in acquainted with the issues involved, either.
