My husband had major eye surgery a few days ago, so I’ve been taking care of him since then. Today is just day 3, and I’m exhausted with it! Admittedly, its not even that much work, as he’s a grown man and can still take care of his personal hygiene and all. But I’m still tired 🙁 So, if these few days are difficult for me, how in the world can I take care of a child??
A child will require 100% of my time day in and day out. I will exist only to take care of it and make sure it has everything it needs. I will not have any time for myself. Everyone says that with kids your life will change forever, and yes, all your priorities change to focus on your child. They also say that this is a good thing, and the love you feel makes it all worth it. But honestly, I’m not sure I want that. If I’m happy without a child, why give up my freedom and life as I know it? After all, you can’t miss what you never had to begin with, right?
I’ll be 39 before the end of this year, and I still haven’t made up my mind. Quite frankly, I just don’t see it happening, nor am I even ready for it. I never thought I’d be having children in my 40’s either, so, at this rate, the answer to my question is “NO”… I think :/
