There was no one nope moment for me.  From the get go I just had a total lack of desire to be a parent.   First off,  kids are exhausting and chaotic and I need a ton of down time and quiet. I can’t deal with slamming doors, anyone yelling or screeching or constant running around.  About 6 years ago I had an accident that resulted in a brain injury.   I’m ok now but there are some days where the simplest tasks leave me mentally and physically exhausted.   I can’t even imagine being a parent and having to deal with that.  (Although,  I thought kids were exhausting and chaotic before my accident.) Second,  I love life with my husband.   I don’t feel that anything is missing.  If anything,  I feel that having kids would take away, rather than add, to our lives together.  And that’s basically how I feel about my life and having kids, in general.   It’s definitely rewarding for some and there are parents out there that love it.  However,  I would hate it and having kids wouldn’t add to my life at all.  It’s just all nopes.
