#MFU TO EVERYONE ASKING ME WHEN I'M GOING TO HAVE KIDS

You get used to it from your Mom and your Grandma and nosey aunties at the holidays but other, presumably sane adults? Peers, former classmates, co-workers you haven’t seen in years? What if I’d been trying, with heartbreakingly futile results? What if I actually thought I was going to be a parent – and I was devastated to be betrayed by my body, or the spouse that I thought I’d want to do it with? What if I just plain old want to wait until I’m at the right place in my financial life and career before I commit to bringing another life in the world? I lost my wallet the other week after too many drinks at happy hour, and you want me to be responsible for another human being? Assume that everyone who doesn’t have a child either doesn’t want to or can’t and then please, keep your comments to yourself.
