    Me. I flunked mommy school. When I was young I used to babysit three little boys for days at a time. They taught memany things, but the main thing they taught me was that they were much smarter, much faster, and far more energetic than I would ever be, and that I did not have what it takes to do the chores of motherhood full time and still keep my sanity. I have the greatest admiration for mothers. I also admire brain surgeons, astronauts and bull riders. I just don't have what it takes to be one.

    I'm not, but I have a lot of friends and some family who are. I totally support it [​IMG]

    (Besides, some of you childfree folk make AWESOME babysitters, probably because you can give the kids back [​IMG] My older brother is CF, but my daughter LOVES him because he plays just as hard as she does.)

    That's cool that there are other people like me on here. I made a post a while back about not wanting any kids at my upcoming wedding, and I was met with a lot of hostility. Why am I required to like children? They have always made me uncomfortable. Even when I myself was a little kid, babies absolutely disgusted me. They drooled and pooped themselves and made loud noises and I was expected to hang out with them. I was an extremely OCD child and I still am to some degree.

    I suppose I just don't see the appeal in parenting. I am just not cut out for it either!

    I guess you could say I am since all mine are ground and out of the house. That's why we have chickens.[​IMG]

    No human kids here. I don't ever want any either. I like my freedom.

    Nobody is required to like children. I am a mom and I don't even like my own stinkin kids some days [​IMG] It's okay to feel that way. I love them, but I don't have to like them ALL the time! If you ever change your mind about wanting kids I could send you a video of my teen and you'll get over it pretty quick. Just an offer [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ETA: I think babies should come with warning labels stamped to their little butts. WARNING: Will be a pain for 18+ years depending on how you raise them. If your lucky they will eventually move and make it on their own. Good luck, we accept NO RETURNS!

    I think some of you other childfree people might enjoy the voluntary human extinction movement. I'm an unofficial member. [​IMG] Google it- quite fascinating. I've got a fantastic bumper sticker that says "six billion miracles is ENOUGH!"
