So the woman I am dating kind of wants kids, and kind of doesn’t. So I was asking myself would I want kids. Now, the immediate answer that came to my mind was nope. And I thought why, and I quickly remembered, because they take away your freedom. So what if I adopted a 2 or 4 year old who was already “trained” (I know some parents will hate me using that word, but I used it on purpose).
Then I spend a day with my 4 nephews, and very quickly remembered. NOPE, there is no way I want kids. I love my nephews and they love me, but to have to do that 24 hours a day 7 days a week, unless I find a babysitter. Not going to be a part of my future.
Maybe a foster parent every once in a while, but only for planned times for short periods of time.
I have so much respect for those people that can have kids, and still love them and want to be around them after a few days.
