The irregular (in frequency and content) musings of a writer, game designer, future librarian, and wannabe bohemian
I felt that way right up until my daughter was born Sir, now I do it and hope I live to see her children.Just saying.
Now, I'm not saying they are NOT in my future, but why is it that parents immediately assume everyone else in the world wants to also become a parent? Not everyone wants or should have kids, and I think people who love their kids (which is admirable, mind you) should not immediately assume that everyone else wants kids to love. There's a lot of people out there who have no business having children. I appreciate that having kids is a life-changing experience, and most parents I know wouldn't give it up for the world. That's fantastic. And one day, Julie and I may decide to have kids. I just don't like the assumption that "one day, when YOU have kids, this is how YOU will feel."
Never said that you wanted kids, just saying how I was able to deal with MY resistance to having to make the changes in my life. Not everyone wants kids, and not everyone should have kids.Sorry if you thought I was making an assumption because that was miles from where I was coming from.Hell if my mom is any indication having kids has no effect on how people act.
I'm not a mad bible thumper--Sophia, however, is my inspiration and always in my heart
