It’s not that I’m anti-baby
Why do some women (without babies) get angry when other women state, “I really don’t want to have kids. Just not for me.”
I’ve encountered many women who tell me I’m “crazy” or “mistaken” for not wanting to have children (and, often times, they get realllly mad). And the children we are talking about are totally hypothetical mind babies. I’m not married or in a relationship, but even if I was, I seriously doubt I’d be on the baby track.
Call me crazy, but pregnancy is just not on my top ten list of things I want to experience in life. I really do think I can live without it.
I mean, I’m not even ruling out adoption. That could happen I really don’t see that happening. However, a lot of people I know frown on that, too, and say “oh, you’ll totally regret that it’s not yours.”
Really? How do you know, lady who doesn’t even have a flesh accessory of their own? Does the baby really need to have the Abbie brand label?
Me thinks not.
I guess I could understand if my friends with children (man, I’m getting older) got irritated for my lack of baby enthusiasm, but they seem to be cool with my no baby mindset. Maybe it’s because they have known me long enough to understand the Abbie genes are a little wacko.
Anyway. Not saying babies are bad. They’re pretty cool for some people – just not me.
Eckgh. I think I’ve typed the word baby one too many times now.
Baby rant done.
