were your (children)'s names picked out before they were born or were names decided upon when they were born?

how often is working status brought up in social settings/with friends, etc. ?

if there is one thing you could recapture about the past (before kids or/and husband, after kids, whatever) what would it be and why?

what are you looking forward to?

name one nice thing you're going to do today.

before returning to school i was trying to convince myself that i was too old and that those years were behind me, i had already had a degree anyway, etc...when i finally took the plunge i can't tell you how delighted i was to find out how many other adult learners were there too, i've made many new friends by taking this turn in my life...i agree with rollmops, life is too short and you're a great person, don't let anything get in the way of what you want.

Obviously I can't argue with how you feel about that, but I really think the two of you are selling yourselves a bit short for no good reason.

I agree, there are definitely plenty of adult learners out there now.

Oh, I don't think we're selling ourselves short, we just recognize the difference between the way two people work and the way a group of three or more works.

Everybody's definition of "family" is different, and the more people you add to the mix the more complex it gets. I remember back when we only had one child being told that you really weren't a family with just one kid, you were just "playing house." Then when we hd our second, we were told that in "real" families, the kids had to outnumber the parents. Personally, I felt the minute DH and I were married, we became a family. Everything that's happened since then is adding to the family, not creating a new one from scratch.

I am not sure I agree, but OTOH I can't really argue with your perception of this.
