    “sometimes I want to beat my kid with my other kid”

    Amazing

    Darling Husband and I are on the fence but I’m 90% sure we’ll have kids. We’ll just make sure to enjoy ourselves for a few more years.

    I voted “others” because I’d like to have biological children and adopt sometime down the line, in 6+ years.

    I definitely want children (one day!) I’m a nurturer and I just can’t imagine not having atleast one child. But I totally understand why someone wouldn’t want to have kids. I have two nephews that I babysit quite frequently and they are enough to drive anyone insane. (But they’re also the light of my life at the same time!!)

    Other, I want my own and to adopt but FH isn’t keen on the adoption idea. I defintely don’t think parenthood isn’t a path for everyone.

    I would probably want two biological children and then might adopt one child a few years later.

    I definitely want one child. After that, I’ll have to decide if I want more. But my first thought is no. And I am adopted, but I still voted that I want my own biological child. That means a lot to me if FH and I are able to, but if not, we will definitely adopt.

    Yes. Badly. And I really wanted to vote for BOTH the first two answers – we are going to TRY and have our own and adopt if we cannot get pregnant naturally. May adopt anyways. (My mom, dad, and sister are all adopted..)

    I’ve always wanted to adopt. It’s weird though, I’ve ALWAYS wanted to be a mom- but I don’t have that nagging feeling that it has to come from MY uterus.

    I voted other because I really don’t know. I used to definitely NOT want kids. Now I often feel like maybe I do want them some day… I had such an awesome childhood and I feel like it’d be kind of fun maybe to recreate that from the other side. Have traditions and do the PTA thing and throw birthday parties and all that jazz. 

    But I know that I am not at all ready now. The idea of having a kid NOW terrifies me. Most of the time I feel about 70% sure that we’ll have them some day… and I kind of hope that I wake up one day with a random biological urge to have them. 

    But then 30% of the time I am like ohhh hell no. I like my life. I like everything about it, why would I change it? I have so much free time it is AWESOME. And really? Not that much responsibility. My husband and I kind of act like overgrown children with constant movie marathons and video games and general silliness. I feel like having kids might ruin my life, honestly. I would have to be the grown up then… and I don’t know that I want that!

    No, I do not want kids. People always say I will change my mind, but I don’t think I will.
