On Kids & Family

“If you don’t have kids and could do it over, would you have them? If you do have kids and could do it over, would you not have them?”

I do not have kids. I do not have a wife and I’ve never been married. I do not have a girlfriend and haven’t had one in quite a few years. When I was younger I thought I’d have kids by this age – 2 girls and a boy. The girls would be twins. Later the dream became 2 kids, fraternal twins; a boy and a girl. Ofcourse with a hot wife with whom I would have these kids. Over the years I lost that image of what a family I would want to have. More and more I couldn’t see myself as a father. I don’t hate kids, I like kids alright. Some kids are very cute and when they are well behaved as well they are just awesome and awe inspiring. I love seeing cute pics of babies just as much as the next guy or woman and there are a couple of small kids of my cousins & friends who I absolutely adore as well as some kids of my Facebook friends.

By the time I turned 30, I knew that I just didn’t want to have kids. I do not see myself as a parent and would not want any kids. I still want to have a family – in that I want to find the love of my life and marry her and adopt a couple of dogs and cats. I see that as the perfect image of what I want as a family for me – loving wife, 2 doting dogs and 2 crazy cats who ignore you until it’s feeding time or they want to be petted <3 . A nice house, nothing too big or fancy but spacious and comfortable. That would be all that I’d want. And if I ever do get the inclination to be a parent, adoption would be the way to go. Like I always say, there are millions of kids who don’t have a family and are in need of one. We should try and give them a family and a home before making new babies.

So that’s what I think.
