Yes, it is possible, some members have done so, and your goal to FIRE in 24 years should still be achievable. There will be contension between goals, and you need to remember to pay yourself first.

That's good to hear; I thought once we had children our dreams of FIRE would go up in smoke (j/k).

Welcome to the forum. To answer your question, you may wish to consider CDs and munis (please note I am one of the more conservative people on this website )

Read this thread. It may make you reconsider Children: You did or did not have them poll?
Seriously, FIRE is not about kids or not, it is about having clear objectives and a plan to achieve them. Good luck
