Whether your desire has been quelled by the experiences with other people's children I cannot say. What I can say is that, you can never know what parenthood is like by hanging around other people's offspring. Only the thoughts and feelings of people who've had children can really change your mind.
It's about as subjective an emotional a subject as is possible, which is why I included my somewhat pathetic Axel F story above. It illustrates simultaneously how wonderful being a parent can be and how impossible it is to describe why to anyone else.
So, 18 pages predicted at minimum before this thread descends (ascends?) into Savile-based bumming jokes.
