Do you have kids?

Considering the age range on this forum skews older with most ranging from 25-30+ year old adults, I'm wondering how many people here are parents.

Many such as Andrew, Jester, Cylon, etc. have talked about their kids on these forums before. Others like biganimefan just made a thread recently saying he is planning on naming his second son, "Leonardo."

So I'm curious, how many other parents do we have on these forums?

It sounds so romantic when you phrase it that way...

Deliberately rendered in cold, harsh, scientific terminology.

Yes, my genetics will be passed on for another generation, thank you for asking!

I need a neutral in-between answer on "no." It isn't a solid want or don't want for me. It's more centered on the circumstances.

Not that I know of

I remember always wanting to be a younger dad and wanted to have 3 kids by the time I was 25.

Funny.

Now I'm 32 and both kids and marriage are things I'm debating if I even ever want.

Happens all the time.
.. they would be termed half siblings. (one parent the same)
Step is when a couple who already have children each marry each other, no blood relation

Btw, it's funny you made this thread,Cubed. this guy I knew back in HS became a father a few days ago. He is...28 or 29 years old afaik. It was odd when I found out his fiance was pregnant.

I don't, but I would like to in the next couple of years.

But we'll see what PCOS has to say about the conditions of that acquirement of children.

If you're being serious, I'm sure whatever girl that is would contact you for child support. Since it never happened, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

It's like Maury or Jerry Springer where they ask, "Who the baby Daddy?" "Are you the Baby Daddy?" "You are NOT the father!"

Not necessarily. I know a few cases where a Shadow Baby Momma comes out of the woodwork like a ninja when the kid is already like 12-15 and BAM, the guy gets slapped with all that back child support and everything.
