So I am 31 and child free at the moment. We have been married 5 years and were on the 5 year plan...meaning we would try after 5 years. Thats been exteneded about a year or 2. Well I have begun to see my friends have kids. And I want to know how it really is without getting the "Life is fabulous" all the time. I want to get a few more things before we have kids...like a dining set...why would I spend $5k after I have kids on something like that. And increase my purse collection a tad because I KNOW after I have a child that will probably come to an immediate hault. I guess maybe overall I'm still not ready.
