Well, I can't comment too much on this, being as I'm now single without kids, but I can tell you that I am looking very much forward to having children one day.
One son and one daughter preferably. Just gotta find me the right woman.
Where in the same boat on this one mate : ) Best of luck to finding that woman.
I don't know if I'm getting my point across or not.
The question is:
Do you think they're trying to slim us down with this type of propaganda?

I have six children. Four girls and two boys and they are a bundle of joy. They amaze me on how different each one is. If I could go back in time and choose to not have them, I'd destroy the time machine. It makes me wonder if the families they interviewed were families that shouldn't have kids or ones who can't afford them the way they need too. It's hard work and frustrating sometimes but I couldn't live without my children now. I love all my dino's jumping on me when I get home from work and telling me they love me and how their day went. I'm very happy.

Bundles of joy turns into heaps of hell.
So for 17 years I have been a single mom raising 3 boys. The caring dads where off living high on life while I devoted myself to my kids.
Sorry if this sounds harsh but this is reality. I know not all men ignore their kids but the two I have do and from the stats on single moms I think more do then don't.
My happy ending is surviving my kids.
