If I'm ever blessed to be a father, I seriously hope and pray I'll be like this man.  "Oh those boys are much too much!" Cheesy

Gabriel, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this!  My wife and I have wanted kids for years (we're still trying to get financially established)... and this video makes us even more eager!... we both specialize in silliness!  Grin  When she showed me the video this morning we both laughed for a good solid five minutes, then concluded that it was officially going to be an awesome day!

If you wait until you can afford kids, you will never have them.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

That's my thought, and you'd be surprised that no matter how poor you can be and no matter how much you sacrifice it never really seems like you've given up too terribly much.

^I have to third this idea. You are never finacially stable enough to have kids. Just make sure you all are in good health (especially future mommy's teeth!) and have jobs that are solid and you are ahead of the game.

I don't blame you - it's nice to put at least a little bit of money away as savings "just in case" something comes up and only one of you is working.  As the others have said, if you wait until you can "afford" kids, you'll either be waiting until you two are past your child-rearing years, or you won't have any at all.  But it is wise to at least make sure you're on somewhat solid ground before taking the plunge.

Just make sure you all are in good health (especially future mommy's teeth!) and have jobs that are solid and you are ahead of the game.

Amen.
