People like to remind me of the great irony that I am a contributor at this blog called Simple Mom. “But Katie,” they will say. “You don’t actually have any kids.”
I know that I don’t have a clue about parenting. I’ll never lie about that.
I usually try to just blend in with subtle notes. If I’m writing about the soulful benefits of taking walks, I throw in with a stroller. When I write about documenting your daily life in December, I mention doing it with your kids.
It’s just that sometimes, it’s easier to avoid the inevitable question:
“When are YOU going to have kids?”
I’m turning 30 this month, celebrating seven years of marriage, and living without kids. Do I want to have kids? My story and my reasons aren’t the topic of this post.
