I had one of the most amazing conversations with a college friend last night, and we inevitably got to the question, “so when are you going to have babies”? I realized my answer to said question would not suffice for long, so after this entertaining dialogue, I sat down and wrote one of those infamous lists my parents always coerced me to create prior to making a big decision…so, here’s my list:
Our generation has killer names for kids
We can dress them in mini H&M clothes
I like faux-hocks on kids
Actually live in the house we own
With today’s technology, we’ll have better chances of being closer to cloning the perfect baby
So, I guess both lists are quite superficial and irrelevant…so, to answer the question most clearly…I have no idea. Right now, babies still scare the fool out of me. Watch the news, talk to any of my fellow social work colleagues or even go to the grocery store, and odds are, we all will discover that some people should never have children. What makes me any different?
[side note: please don’t think that one blog post is going to sway our decision one way or the other…the stegall’s procreation activities isn’t a “call to vote” proposition…I’ve just found that many people have opinions about kids and when to have them…so here’s mine.]
