My sister isn't big on having kids, she's 33.

This woman I work with was with a guy for a few years that didn't want them.  She's not with him now and has a new guy, he's in his early thirties...  seems like she has her claws in deep already so I'm sure It Won't Be Long now.

It's so funny how your perception changes as you age, or at least mine did.  When I was 18 I thought I would have kids by 25.  At 25 I thought I would have kids by the time I'm 30.  That's 5 months away and there is no way.  Maybe by 40 or maybe not at all?  I am just grateful that my husband is on the same page as me.  heart

When I was in high school I hardly dated. I was much too busy with work and school, plus I thought most of the guys were immature. Good friends, but immature. A year after high school I met my husband. Even after living with him for a few years, we thought "Oh, we'll get married later. Its just a piece of paper. As long as we love each other." Here I am a few years later, married. Who knows what will happen in the next few years maybe I will have kids or not. I'm not in a rush. After working at McDonald's as a teenager left a bad taste in my mouth about a lot of kids. People think they are little angels, I got news for them. A pet peeve of mine is people letting kids run a muck and then blame someone else. ahdn_paul_01

Grrr, I hate when Irish people use American expressions, it grates me but the worst one is calling their Mam "Mom".. oh sweet Jesus don't get me started. IT'S NOT MOM!!! THIS IS IRELAND NOT AMERICA FOR CHRIST SAKE!!! I have no problem with Americans/other nationalities saying "Mom" but if it's normal everyday Irish folk...I just...no. You say "Mam, Ma or Mum" in Ireland not "Mom". The phrase "Mam" comes from the Irish word for "Mother, Mathair or Mam (pronounced wam) which is pronounced in  English as Ma'am there is an expression in Irish:

"Is fearr Gaeilge briste na Bearla cliste"- "It's better to speak broken Irish then fluent English"

 And thanks to American television  over here we now have American-accented 4/5 years old running around the place with their "Moms, pacifiers, soda and soccer" and Irish expressions are being lost for the next generation a-hard-days-night-paul-10 I obviously have no problems with Americans saying it but Irish people *shudders*

And that's my daily complaining done

I hate it when people here try to speak with a more western accent. Because in Holland there's a huuuuge different between accents if you look at north, south, east and west. Our accent is often made out to be ''a farmer's accent'', because our o's and e's are so overdone and we ''swallow half of the words'' and our R is different. In the west they speak more..British like. The R is the same and their accent is just so different and sounds more posh or so.
