My wife teaches elementary school and a few years ago she had not one, not two, but *five* Liams in her class of 23 kids, as well as two Aidens. Thankfully that particular phase seems to have wound down.

When did you know that you want to have a kid(s) and what helped you decide to go for it? Not a mom but want to ask people With first hand experience.

I love work for the sense of achievement). Now I am leaning toward childfree. I would really appreciate your thoughts and advice!
