A blog by a woman who simply can't make relationships work, so instead of wallowing in self-pity, she decided to explore singleness with some humour and honesty.

Question du Jour
SO lately, all my single, married or otherwise friends have been asking me if I want kids. To be honest, I love children. I love them more than life itself. I have dedicated my life to children and to bettering their lives. But to have my own, I don't know. I have never really thought that babies were great. I'll be honest. They are cute, they are beautiful, they are entertaining but I don't want to birth one or even hold one for more than a few minutes at a time. Do I think I'd be a great mom? ABSOLUTELY!!! I know that I would. I would have fears of course, but I know that overall I would be great at it. I was raised by a great mom, so I know I could do it. It's why guys with kids from previous marriages don't scare me, but being pregnant and birthing a child scares me senseless.... I guess at 34, I am at the age where clocks should be ticking and the switch to desperately desiring babies should be ticking... but it just isn't... *sigh* another abnormal part of me, I guess.
