You have to!
and that was, my dear friends, my elevator talk with the neighbor
the lovely lady, that lived next to us died, and her kids came to clean the apartment
I liked that woman a lot
we were good neighbors
I had seen her daughters no more than three-four times
and now one of those daughter just said it
first she asked: do you have kids?
and I answered with the whole honesty: No, I don't have and I am not yet completely sure, that I would like to
you should had seen her face when I said that
she truly believes, that every woman HAS TO have kids
that was a long elevator ride
I am having bad times with elevators lately :)
and she is not the only one
almost every mother I had ever met, always says to me: ohhh, you are getting older, you must already have kids, but don't worry, you will find a man
imagine the opposite situation
me going to every mother saying: ooohhhhh, you had a kid, poor you, you had to use protection! but don't worry, they grow up and leave you just like your man already did
not socially acceptable?
I truly don't understand that
is not that the choice you have to make?
and not the choice society force you to make?
my kid would be the best kid in the world
if I decide to have him/her
but it is my choice
and the choice of my man
not the daughter of the neighbor I had met several times
