I just wanna hear your opinions on this and see if there are women out there who can relate to this…
I’m 27 and I always thought I wanna have kids one day. I still want to, I mean, I have my wonderful SO and I really want his kids some day, but sometimes when I think about it I get really worried and I’m not sure anymore if I REALLY want kids.
Examples- I’m not even very good with kids- When there are running os screaming kids in the train or the supermarket, I honestly get really annoyed and try to be as far away from them as I can. When someone wants to hand me their baby I don’t really want to hol it, it makes me kind of uncomfortable. When someone leaves me alone with their kid, I’m not quite sure what to do with them, how to talk to them, how to play with them. I don’t know, it’s just weird. I’m often getting annoyed by my friends babies- Even though I find them cute and even buy them stuff for their birthdays, I get annoyed when they start screaming, or running around, or are rude to mom, or don’ wanna eat their food, or have their diapers full and smell a lot… and and and.
Also, I love my life right now, I love being able to sleep as long as I want, I love being in bed and watching my girls shows, I love being able to have sex with my SO whenever and wherever I want, I love being able to travel whenever I want and never have to worry about a kid.
I mean, I’m a person who likes to take care of others, I often cook for my SO, I don’t mind cleaning the apartment, I take care of him when he’a sick and I care about my friends, but a baby… it’s just such a huge responsibility. What if I get really annoyed when my baby cries? What if I just wanna be somewhere else when my baby runs around and doesn’ want to sleep? I’m worried I might be a terrible mom. At the same time, I think I would love my baby like crazy and it’s also weird to imagine a future without having at least one kid.
Does anyone feel like me? Or does anyone have babies now, and felt like me? Does it change once yo have your own child?
