It's kind of hard to explain what one wants versus what one doesn't want. :) But... I don't feel like I have a kids-sized hole in my life. Kids are nice. My nieces are adorable, but I don't find myself envious of my sister for having kids. It's a bit like why I don't do theater (especially after having people try to recruit me for tech staff) - yes, I would probably enjoy it and be good at it, it would add another good thing to my life. But adding that one thing would crowd out a lot of things that I have and am happy with, and at some point you can't fit any more life in.

Oddly...

A few places above this in my friends list was this entry from someone talking about her own kid-related instincts.

Apparently I need to learn how to kill mammoths?

Re: Oddly...

That was interesting ... though it would be more interesting if I could get livejournal to skip the folding.

I was actually in the "the average baby isn't really all that cute" camp before. I think things really do change once one has one of one's own. Either that, or all the babies in the maternity ward just happened to be extra cute the two days we were there.
