I definitely want kids. But does the fact that I don’t enjoy them now mean I’m going to be a bad parent? Any time I see a dog, I get so excited and want to pet them and play with them, but any time I see a baby, I’m like “meh” and don’t really have an interest in holding them. I guess I haven’t really been around too many babies, but for the most part, I feel as if they intimidate me a little and get on my nerves. And the hundreds of pictures of babies people post on facebook annoy me, but if there is a pic of a dog or cat I’m like “awwww!” lol
Anyone else like this? I feel almost guilty for not liking babies more :o/

Well, I do love holding babies, but I LOVE animals, especially dogs. I have volunteered with animal rescue for years, so I feel ya.

I feel the exact same way! I’ll take a barking dog over a screaming baby anyday! (at least at this at this point in my life)

Yes. I mean, my maternal instinct does kick in when I’m around kids, but I absolutely melt when it comes to animals. Animals tend to gravitate towards me too, and there have been many times when pets that usually hate everyone and everything will come running over to me and the owner is stunned. haha

Yes yes yes. I actually do not find babies cute at all. There’s always something coming out of their mouths.

Oh my gosh I’m so glad I’m not the only one that feels this way! I was starting to think I was a little coldhearted!

Yes. I’m still upset that I won’t be having litters of puppies or kitties, despite how odd and hard to explain that would be.

I totally swoon over puppies/dogs. Not so much babies. I mean I can look at a baby and think to myself “Oh, that’s cute” but it doesn’t get me all squishy inside like a puppy!

Give me a puppy or kitty any day over a baby. I’m not really a kid person, though. At all.

Definitely. Dogs, cats, any cute animal… is waaaay cuter than a baby!!

Yes! I love my friends’ babies, and I want my own in a few years, but baby animals are far cuter than baby humans.
And have you ever tried to have a staring contest with a baby? You will ALWAYS lose.

I definitely swoon over cats & dogs more than babies! The funny thing is I can’t wait to be a mom, haha.

Oh yea. I go absolutely crazy over cute animals. Babies… meh. I pretend like I think they’re adorbs to not offend the parent but normally I have a million other thoughts running through my head. “Is her skin supposed be peeling off?”, “He looks like an alien.”, “For the love of god, someone PLEASE change that shitty diaper. I can smell it all the way over here.”. That kind of stuff, lol.
