I hate to say this, but I don't think I want children. Honestly I kind of hate saying it. I only say kind of because I know how much my parents want grandchildren. But I am sure my parents are more concerned with my happiness and well being than having more grandchildren. Don't get me wrong, I love being around kids, I love babysitting and I love my niece. I love to give her books I enjoyed when I was a kid, compliment her colored-in drawings of Elsa and Anna, watch Disney movies with her, and eating something unhealthy or fattening with her. But I also love to be on my own. Probably more than what is good for me. I am far to independent to have kids. I want an exiting life and having kids will weigh me down.
Another main reason for not wanting kids is this: I am happy with the life I have, why would I ever change that? This culture preaches that happiness is what we should all strive for, yet they will freak out when we deviate from the clichè life society has planned for us. I am happy, and I promise not to judge people who want a bazillion kids, plus I admit I love spoiling kids and then sending them home to their mother and father. That alone, is more than enough for me. However, I am open to the idea of kids but I am open to the idea of not having kids. Don't tell me I will change my mind when I meet the right guy, the choice to have children or not, is entirely up to me.
