    See I just don't get the 'I don't like kids but knew I wanted my own'
    I don't like dogs, they annoy me. So I'll never get a dog, simple.
    I can get that there are other factor for people having kids... Maybe it's a biological thing.

    I always knew I'd love my own and couldn't imagine my life without kids. I knew it would be different when they were my own, sounds strange to some but I just knew..

    Before I had my own I loved kids, especially babies.



    The exception are only my nephew and Neice
    I am actually a little ashamed to admit that although I love all my nieces and nephews there is a couple I have a hard time liking just because they are favoured over their siblings by their parents and get away with everything and they know it and use it to their advantage.

    I have wayyyyy less tolerance for other people's kids because I don't have to be tolerant with them, with DS I kind of have to be! (Not sure I've worded that right?)

    I always loathed kids and avoided them like the plague. I felt awkward around them due to limited exposure as well.

    Then when I was 27, I had a sudden urge to procreate, and had a child, and then another one.

    Now, I quite like kids in general, but I am still awkward with ones outside my experience. My eldest is 4, so anything under that, I can deal with, but I am still a bit awkward with older kids in that I struggle to converse with them.

    I have zero tolerance for other peoples children. It's not a conscious thing I'd prefer not to feel this way I just find other peoples children irritating. I had my own because I felt an overwhelming urge to have children

    I used to absolutely adore kids. They used to come to me to tell me everything thats been happening. Now, my own kids wear me out. I still like other peoples kids mostly tho, like I will always want to hold babies etc
    I dont like the wild ones that run a muk and be rude but I never liked those beforehand...
