I didn't want kids. LOTS of work. Not much fun. Or so I thought. For me, it came down to the purpose of life. I've found more fulfillment in parenting than I ever had in my profession, pets, pursuing full-time my personal interests, or volunteering. At times, it has challenged me and my marriage, but also made me grow and my marriage stronger. I feel my greatest contribution will be raising self-sufficient, happy, frugal, wise and respectful children who will better our world and do the same for the future. It is good to help others--many social programs are needful--but if we all came from families where we learned respect, love, compassion, work, forgiveness and how to have fun, I believe many of the worlds problems would go away. I can't solve the worlds problems. I still volunteer. And I'm doing my best to raise two little people (and having fun along the way) with the hope that goodness will only grow.
