You have how many?!

5 Oct

Children, I mean. And you’re 29?! So you mean to tell me that you have four children and you aren’t yet 30 and you’ve had no multiple births?


Of course I’m not so dense as to understand that this idea of having lots of babies early is cultural. It’s common in lower socioeconomic classes and in third world countries and in the American military community.

In a way, I kind of understand the latter two; no access to birth control or education and in the military the medical expenses of having a baby are covered and women often don’t work outside the home, so reproducing at lightning speed is of course a great idea.

Bitching and moaning because your wounded military husband doesn’t want a fourth baby before he’s 30 is stupid. No, it’s more than that, it’s selfish and classless.

Don’t have babies to fill voids or to mend relationships; they do the direct opposite. Don’t have babies because you are bored with your life. Also, don’t get a puppy for this reason either.

Spend some time with the children you do have, spend some time with your husband, get an education, get a job, find a hobby, etc.

Bottom line is, if you’re 30 years old and you already have more than two kids and no education, you should really rethink what you’re doing.


Yes, this was an incredibly judgmental post written by a childless 31 year-old.
