Yahoo just put out the article below, discussing a woman who wrote an essay about how her children are her biggest regret - I'm kind of fascinated by it because I see my (still childless) self in her.
I'm still ambivalent about kids, and part of it is because I know that if I have them, they'll automatically become my number 1 priority and that I'd give up anything for them. And... I don't want to. I think I'd be a great mom, but I also feel like having kids would be the end of me. Oh sure, I'd still work, but I'd feel badly about it and probably stop travelling for work, or being as ambitious. <i>I don't want to have something else that has that much control over me</i>.
Thoughts? Part of the reason I crossposted is that this is on Yahoo and the comments are actually really reasonable - making me think that a lot of people would agree or partially agree with her if they had the chutzpah.
