…when I tell them I don’t want to have kids of my own.
Honest. I don’t. Yet.
I do think of adopting in the distant future but I do not want to get pregnant. Ever.
I don’t know why exactly. Part of it is how painful the pregnancy will be. Part of it has to do with me not wanting to take leave from work (a.k.a. me being a workacholic). Part of it is I don’t want a baby that poops, cries, vomits etc. etc.
I don’t feel the least bit clucky.
I don’t feel like going “awwww” when I see a little baby unlike every other girl I know.
When I think of my life in 10 years, I don’t see a baby or child in it. [I see me with some little doggies instead!!] 🙂
Why does it bother other people though that I do not want to have kids?
Why do people think it’s the end of the world that I may not want kids of my own?
Contrary to what some people think, I don’t hate kids. I work with them every day and enjoy it.
It’s the thought of having one full-time that I can’t handle. Especially one that will not talk initially.
I guess I feel like telling all the people that judge me for not wanting to have kids — “so what if I don’t?”
Just thought I’d send this question out into cyberspace…
Why is it that people feel a woman must have children and judge her if she doesn’t want to?
Until next time,
