This woman and her daughter are at my bus stop every day. Between her pigtails and little chubby legs, it's impossible not to stare at her and smile. This, of course, is a nice segue into people asking me if I want kids. It doesn't happen a ton but definitely more often in the last few years. My answer is no. It's not that it's always been no but it's never been yes. Getting married and having kids was something I never gave much thought to. I couldn't picture myself with kids and never felt that motherly instinct. The worst is when people say that I'll change my mind. First of all, I won't. Secondly, if you're so convinced that I'll change my mind why did you ask me in the first place? On the other hand, I love kids and babies. I will go crazy over them in public places. But that's totally different than getting pregnant, giving birth, and raising a child. It's a lot of work and it's a lot of work that I just have no interest in. And I don't see anything wrong with it.
