are just easier. And unlike homo sapiens they do know unconditional
love. I believe that Mothers love their children differently and that
they do have favorites (especially if they have five or more...come
on!). This is true also with people who have cats but in our case we
can pretty much ignore the unfavored kitty while lavishing praise and
smooches onto our favorite feline without fear of damaging the infant
for life. Oh and we can sterilize our cats before they even know
what’s hit them. As a matter of fact we’re asked to do it.
the maternal instinct gene being somewhat malformed in my psyche (and
I’m not pointing any fingers here...ahemmm) it’s better that I chose
to be childless. I would have been so paranoid that my child would do
something wrong that I probably would have just seat-belted him or her
to the couch until they were eighteen. And with MY control issues
they would have started taking drugs at a very early age...aside from
the Valium that I would have given them daily to keep them compliant.
The whole thing would not have been pretty...or fair.
childless at this age is really groovy because society no longer shuns
me like a smoker lighting up on an airplane in coach. Since ours is
not a perfect world I think it’s safe to say that if I had procreated
my children would not be drawn to care for me in my declining years.
Of course my cats wouldn’t either but we arrive alone and leave
alone so I’m okay with that. And I wouldn’t have to worry in the
afterlife about what my children might say about me. The Ancient One
needn’t worry about this in our case because she always ‘suggested’
that being childless might be something we would want to consider.
There’s that maternal instinct thingy again.
Besides there SURE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE ON THE PLANET. I’m just contributing some negative open space.
it’s too bad about the state of the world these days. As usual there
is war famine and really bad traffic on I-35. Fires are destroying
the rain forests and left side of America hurricanes are drowning the
bottom side of America and terrorists are planning to bring us down in
the most horrible ways they can imagine. Tornados are destroying the
Midwest fields and trailer parks the ice caps are melting and mud
slides are collapsing and changing the configuration of the shoreline
of California. I’m not even going to go into the starvation and
slaughter of innocent people all over the world. Let’s see…what can I
do that would bring me solace and make me feel loved and fulfilled in
this terrible world? I know! I’ll have a baby! Yeah that’s it.
What’s one more soul in the world? No one will notice.
are these people thinking? I knew at an early age that I would never
bring another being into this world. I know that there are many
pleasures in the third dimension of experiencing life. There are
tastes and smells and dances that the angels envy. I read somewhere
that there are many souls in the outer-body experience who are
anxiously waiting to enter into this worldly experience. There are
lessons to be learned from it and growth to take back to the spiritual
realm. Sheesh hard way to go.
of the above is bullshit. What I really feel is that having a child is
a responsibility for which I was never ready to commit. Doctor’s
appointments school expenses waking up early to feed a child that’s
screaming because you didn’t put strawberry jam on his eggs… I’m sorry
I just can’t do it.
say having children is the most powerful and beautiful thing that can
happen in life. They are honest (not… they lie all the time) they
give you unconditional love (not if you don’t give them that yellow
cereal they saw in a commercial) and they are pure little
three-dimensional beings of awareness. Tell that to a woman who is
changing a diaper full of poop or the mother who just wiped the snot
off of her child’s nose in the middle of the line at the grocery store
as it cries out like a baby bird for every shiny impulse item at the
don’t miss what you never had. Have your kids if you want to but don’t
tell me not to park in the ‘Cars With Kids Only’ section at Whole
Foods. Screw that. They should put up a sign that says ‘Parking for
Middle-aged Women Only’ and then line it with boxes full of ‘Free
