Why I’m NEVER Having Kids

Why I’m NEVER Having Kids #1: Too Much Energy

March 2, 2008 · No Comments

(Note: I started doing this blog about 2-1/2 years ago; this incident happened back in November 2005).

My uncle went to New York today… which meant I had to stay here and look after my 16-and-12-year old cousins today…

I… am… NOT… having… kids… EVER.

Kids – they want to take up all your time, and when they can’t find something else to do they want to talk your ear off and bother you. It’s darn near 12 midnight, and my 12-year old cousin – who must be hooked on caffine or something – is STILL walking around here trying to get me to do something with him. It’s not that I have no energy – I just don’t have 7 PM energy, and right now all I want to do is just chill and relax.

Ironically, I was the same way when I was his age. At 12, I had enormous amounts of energy, and could stay up far past 2 AM without even thinking about going to bed until at least 4. But now I’m 23. I don’t feel as though I missed out on a childhood, nor do I feel as though I need to relive my childhood through somebody else.

I… am… NEVER… HAVING… KIDS. EVER. Sorry ladies (well, not really sorry), but if you’re looking to have kids in the future, it ain’t gonna be with me. And don’t think I’m changing my mind either – after taking care of these 2 for the last few months, I think this will be more than enough kid time for my lifetime…
