35. Perfect time. Thought I was ready at 29/30, but thank god I waited just a bit longer because I would have had a child with the wrong person then.

30. My wife and I originally wanted to wait a little longer, but some of our extended family and friends have had fertility issues so we wanted to be safe instead of sorry. In a perfect world, we probably would have waited another two years, but you never know what the future will hold and we are so happy to be parents.

28 and 34. There is no perfect time to have them . Key is that you’re in a healthy relationship

Let’s talk about the social media posts of women complaining about how they want to “touch “ people they want to “hug” people they miss “people “

A reminder to those who are stressed about your billable hours that your value is more than your pure productivity.

They’re 4 and 7 for reference. Please constructive responses only. Thank you!
