    Sometimes I Wish I Did....

    I don't have any children, and I am 29, and seem to be the abnormal one out of all of my friends, since I have only one friends out of many that doesn't have any children either. It really makes it hard to have girlfriends to hang out with when all of them have children. I really...

    And I Don't Want Them...

    I love kids, other peoples! I can barely take care of myself , why would I have children? No way could I raise  a child alone and that is how I would expect to do it because you can not depend on anyone in this world but yourself.

    I never wanted kids growing up.

    I didn't want to get married. I always envisioned myself alone by choice with an important career. Funny thing, though, is I am a maternal person- a caregiver type. I work in social work- advocacy and therapy- and I have a natural sense of social responsibility. As the years...

    I Am Sometimes Unsure...

    I love children.  Don't get me wrong, I do.  But whenever my friends come by with their horde of little hellions, I stop being so sure that I want them.  My home is not child-proof.  It is filled with expensive equipment, beautiful things and my nice clean...

    I Have Strict Standards

    I've always said - If I was comfortably wealthy, had the perfect husband, a full-time nanny and housekeeper, I would totally have like 15 kids. For real. Until then, I'm fine with 0.

    Grommit has what she needs more

    or less and is happy. A couple sliding last night. They catch me so I catch them. Haul them up the slope. This morning further chats and then a hurtle to collect and find peace. A new place. A new bubble of calm. My friend and I sit, ask, listen, brace for the week. Lovely...

    And It Is Making Me Miserable.

    I want children more than anything in the world. I want to be a mother, to raise a child, to feel that love and bond. I worry that I will never have children. I worry that I CAN'T have children, due to my own childhood trauma. I worry that I will never be at a point in my life...

    Deliberate, Well Thought Out Choice

    I was never one of those girls who was obsessed with babies.  Motherhood was not something that particularly appealed to me. As I got older, I thought out my position on the whole children thing.  And after much consideration, I decided to remain childless.  My reasons are as...

    I Have No Children

    Society:  Do you have a boyfriend? Bella: No, I don't yet. Society: Oh, but you are beautiful.  Are you married? Bella: Um, I'm afraid not, since I do not have a boyfriend as I told you before *rolls eyes* Society: Okay, but I'm sure you have children, right? Bella...

    I don't have children by choice.

    I have always known motherhood was not for me at a young age. Most of my friends are married with children, and really have no time or interest in spending time. They prefer to be around other mother's. I also hope to make some women friends that are child free by choice. There...

    Kids

    Don't have none, don't want none. Yes I know this is improper grammar. I love kids 5 and below because they're so beautiful and in my opinion the best people in the world because most don't have baggage and the taint of the world. But because the world is such an ugly place I do...

    Nope.......Natural Or Otherwise....

    Haven't met anyone who's wanted to have kids with me. So I'm 37, set in my ways, with too much baggage (I think) to make a good mom. Definitely wouldn't want to do it on my own. NO THANK YOU VERY MUCH! My mom was a single parent & she did an amazing job...

    Happily Decided Not to Procreate, Ever.

    I have never been the girlie-girl type that loved babies and squealed over how adorable they are. Just because I have working equipment, I don't feel obligated or entitled to bring forth another being onto the planet. Quite honestly, I don't know if my mother's selfish...

    No Kids Ever

    I never had to inclination to have kids. I figure if I didn't have kids by the time I turned 35, I would never have them. Who wants kids when you're walking around with a cane? I also figure if I ever had kids, I would probably end up getting divorced (because that's what...

    Faced with too many possible inherited weaknesses and diseases on both sides, we decided to pass on bringing children into the world—end the bloodline. This was a surprisingly easy decision with no regrets other than my own occasional twinge at “what if.” They...

    Not Sure Yet

    I have swayed back and forth so much on my desire for children.  I even worked at a daycare for a while and it really nurtured my...nurturing side.  BUT once I quit working there and went into another field, I quickly became anti-children for some reason. I'm with...

    Nope, Not Yet!

    I would like to have children someday. But only when I am married, if possible. :-D I have worked with children for many years. And I do enjoy be around them. Sometimes from the mouths of babes, you get the most wisdom, from their innocent point of view. And they don't mind that...

    And Its Going to Stay That Way..

    I love kids, I think they're great....I just don't want any. Which, coincidentally, is why I don't have any. I don't criticize people who have children or have a lot of them and I would appreciate it if those same people would extend me the same courtesy. There aren't any plans...
