    Never tell the truth about hormonal driven issues to the opposite sex.

    I like kids, and I love babies.

    Well, that puts Phil out of the running. “No soup for YOU”!

    I once had something close to that opinion, because the responsibilities and risks associated with babies scared me. Then I got married.

    With the birth of my daughter, the risks and responsibilities did not disappear, but became an acceptable cost of being a father. As my daugher aged, the responsibilites changed as well as the joys.

    Easy for him to say. He doesn’t have to squeeze out that 75 pound kid. OUch! That’s gonna leave a mark. (And an echo.)

    I honestly don’t think this is going to be a deal breaker. I don’t think Val wants any more kids anyway and if Phil likes older kids, all the better because Val has two of them.

    LOL! I always say that if I could give birth to a 2-year-old, I would have had more. I’m not a baby person either…

    LOL, MeGoNow!

    My husband was the same way with our boys. He loved them but did not truly interact with them until they were older like around 4 or 5 years old…when they were capable of cognitive thinking and spoke with more than “I want, Gotta go potty, I don’t wanna,” etc, and with more constructive sentences that promoted conversations. To quote my husband, “more human-like.”

    @snarkm I completely agree… with Max and Lucy next door, and her hands full with her own girls, I don’t think Val’s pining for another kid!

    A deal breaker would have been if he thought they should be “born at 18… you know, old enough to kick them out of the house” kind of thing!

    He’d say that up until the day she tells him she’s pregnant. Then he’ll whine about it behind her back under his breath til he gets his first glimpse of the baby’s face and he’ll forget he ever said it.

    @frightenup, if you can deal with terrible twos, more power to your arm!
