I have been totally uninterested in having children since I reached puberty and had to confront the biological possibility. My mother kept telling me that I'd change my mind when I got older, but she was wrong in that, as she was in so many other things.

I became an aunt at the age of 11 (note that this isn't really weird--my brother is 12 years older than me and had been married for a couple of years at that point.) When we went to his house to visit, my parents oohed and aahed at the sleeping infant, while I played with his dog. I thought I was getting the better of the deal, even though no one else did. :)

I'm perfectly happy for my friends to have children; I wish them joy, and I'm even willing to babysit on occasion. I just don't have any desire for children of my own.
