I’ve decided mentally that I don’t want kids. They’re a pain, plus when you’re pregnant they mess up your whole body. However, my little sister is 10 months old and I love her to pieces. Even when she cries, I love to calm her down. Being a great parent just requires being there for your children. I love babies, but after they’re six, I can’t handle them anymore. I also knew that if I wanted kids, I’d adopt. Why should I reproduce when there are thousands of kids without parents? I don’t want my body to carry a baby for nine months anyways. At the same time, that does make a more personal relationship with your child. Ugh! I don’t know anymore. I’m sure I’ll change my mind again. In Parks and Recreation, the way Leslie talked about her kids was so inspiring. I know her character isn’t real, but that doesn’t mean they don’t impact me. I’m not afraid of having a bad kid, I’m afraid they’ll hate me. I’m afraid they’ll hate life and hate me for bringing them into it. You never know what kind of kid you’re going to get. I really just want grandchildren. That way I can love them without raising them.
