I don't have a maternal bone in my body

Well.... when it comes to infants and all...

I have a very good friend that had a baby.  Like, today.  Had a baby.

Which is an amazing and awe inspiring thing!

And the kid is incredibly cute.  Seriously!

And what did I think when I saw some pictures?

I can't imagine why anyone would want to do that.

I know!  It's a terrible thought.  And I felt simply awful for even thinking it!  And I honestly respect parents!  I have nothing against people that want to have babies.  I have many friends that have babies!  And I LOVE their babies!  (And will freely hand the babies back when they cry!)

I just don't think I want to be responsible for someone that small (for more than a few minutes).  I've talked about adoption before, but now I know for sure... I want them older.

I don't know why that makes me feel like an awful human being....

I don't know if it makes it better or not, but there may have been a few times today where it crossed my mind that I don't know why people would want to do this to themselves, too. Of course, I may have been in extreme pain at those times.

Seriously though. Kids- NOT for everyone. Don't let it make you feel bad. I think your plan is a grand one.
