In reply to comment: War on kids (see in situ)


This is the first time someone has said "I don't want to have kids" that I have not jumped in with a heartfelt expression of the the joys of parenting. My "kids" are in their 30s now, one wide awake and like a deer in the headlights, the other sound asleep and breaking my and my husband's hearts on a daily basis. The grandchild that made everything worth fighting for is now out of our life. Time will march on, and perhaps some day I will want to revisit this post. I can tell you what I used to say... That children are our only "guaranteed" life after death. They are the physical manifestation of the love between you and your beloved. Those things remain true. That is the best I can muster today. Oh, except what my husband has said to every smart person who ever chose not to have children. "You can't do that, man. The stupid people are out-breeding us already."
