Totally not art related, but this is the only social media I really use and I wanted to get people's opinion on this.
What do you think about having kids? My husband and I have been married three years and together for seven.
People, especially those who don't know me well, are always asking when are we planning on having kids. My answer; barring an accident- never.
Do you think that's weird? I mean, I'm 26 years old. I think if I was gonna feel maternal, I would by now.
I never babysat growing up, my younger brother was only two years younger than me.
I have a 2 yr old niece I love to pieces, but they live an hour away and I don't see her much during the week.
I think maybe I'm too self centered to be a parent.
Not saying that you cant have a life when you have a child, but I don't know if I would always be able to put their needs first,
which is how I believe a responsible parent should behave. The only reason I'd want a kid at this point is so my husband would have one, but he's kind of ambivalent.
I remember growing up, one of my older females relatives couldn't have children. As a kid, I thought it was so weird. All adults I knew had kids.
(maybe it's because I'm from the deep south, it's 1. Get married 2.Get pregnant 3. Get pregnant again 4. etc.)
Now it seems more people aren't having kids. I mean, if I was gonna want to have kids, I getting kinda old, right?
Did any of ya'll have kids later in life after thinking you wouldn't?
On a related note, I work with the public on a daily basis. Also, I'm kinda chunky, around 170.
If one more person asks me 'How's the baby?' meaning they think I am pregnant, I'm gonna scream.
My friend said I should say 'Oh, I just had a miscarriage...'
Bet they'd never ask another woman again.
I don't get mad. I just say 'Oh, I'm not pregnant- it's fat'
Then I watch them squirm
