You don’t have children for other people. period. You have children for you. So if you don’t want children then you don’t want children. I’ve never understood this about people. I have friends who want kids and have kids and I have friends who don’t want kids and don’t have kids and the amount of judgment that gets laid on those child-free by choice couples is unreal. Couples with kids shake their heads and sigh mournfully about how that couple is wasting their years frivulously and never knowing real joy…

… yeah try again, that joyless couple is in the Carribean while you’re dealing with a squalling toddler. Are kids great? Yes, I think so but they are not for everybody much like cats and dogs are not for everybody.

@barbie86 – Thanks! I bet I would make the mistake you listed in the first paragraph without thinking. The third paragraph though made me laugh – can’t believe some people actually have said some of those things.

 @amoret11:  Tell the nags that since they very clearly want children more than you do, they should adopt a child and raise it and you can come visit them once or twice a year. Now isn’t that generous!
