Looking at my close friends... an overwhelming majority of them have kids (kindergartners all the way through small babies) or are pregnant.
It's weird... the more I see children, hear about babies, hear about childbirth and pregnancy... the less I want to do it. The lowest point was having a panic attack at my friend's daughter's 1st birthday party. Too many kids running around.
I think that parenting is job, a hard job. I don't know if I have the qualifications to hold that job. I've seen parents that... well... aren't doing to well in that particular job, and I've seen parents that need a raise, becuase they are doing wonderfully in their job. I can't hold a job... I can't teach children.. hell, I can't train my dog!
Please don't judge me because the maternal gene skipped me. I just hope my family will stop asking me when I'm going to have kids!!
I totally disagree with the sentiment that all women are supposed to grow up, get married, buy a house, and have kids. I don't think that it's right for everyone. I knew from a young age that it was what I personally wanted, but I say good for you for knowing that it's not right for you and being strong enough to admit it to yourself and others. There are too many women "pressured" into having kids by conventions that they don't believe in and then end up hating themselves for it.
