ok, it’s honesty hour up in here.
so do you judge women who have several (more than 2 or 3) kids? because i kind of do.
i don’t know why… maybe it’s because of articles like this that hint that only less educated women are having larger families these days. or maybe it’s because for whatever reason, i kind of feel like they must have nothing else going on for them so they might as well keep busy somehow…
why bring this up, you ask? well, because i hate being judged for not having kids. and so i don’t want to be just as bad for judging those who have an excess of them.
i’m 31 and feeling like i’m already over the hump. if i were to have kids now i have no idea how i’d possibly survive through sleepless nights. and that’s the least of it. how about running around at the park all day, adding the extra laundry to my weekly loads, cleaning up after a whole extra person… and when it gets older – driving it to school, sports, clubs, friends houses, driving friends home, pitching in to bake sales, fundraisers, volunteering for school trips…
i’m tired just thinking about it.
please don’t get me wrong. i’m not just lazy. there comes a point in a person’s life when their body starts to break down, and things start degenerating. grey hairs, for example are a tip that your body might not be in it’s prime to be producing new life.
i like to think that should i ever change my mind (as everyone is so fond of telling me i’ll do) that i’ll have to good sense to adopt a child who really needs a good home.
