Why I Want to Have Kids

baby, parent, children, mommy, raise, lessons, support, love, beauty, kids, children, child, world, want to, I am not married or ready for kids in any way but I do know I want them eventually. I don’t want them because they will fulfill me. I don’t want them because I feel they are my sole life purpose.

I want them because I love learning. I want them because I want to leave this earth knowing I left behind a living breathing human that I tried my best not to totally mess up.

I always look at children and parents fondly. There is definitely something magical about being a parent. I know there is an amazing bond unparalleled to anything else in the world. The main reason I know this is because of experience. I grew up thinking my parents were always judging me when in reality they full-heartedly supported me no matter what my decision.

Would I cry if I was pregnant tomorrow? Probably. I am not ready today nor do I think you are ever really ready to create and raise a little human being to be less messed up than you while growing up.

I do want to have a child at some point in my life though. I want to have those ironic moments when you look into your child’s eye and you learn more powerful lessons than you ever thought possible.

I want to hold their hand until they start pulling away because they think they are too “grown up.”

Considering what a horrible little teenage girl I was, I know I will have a child much the same. Bring it on. I want to know why I was the way I was. I want to feel the love and pain my parents felt as a result of my behavior.

I want it all.

I don’t want to sugarcoat life for my children but I do want to keep them a bit sheltered for as long as I can. Why? Because every lesson comes at its own time. I want to admire their innocence from a far and fondly smile at the moments that will never be again.

I know some people simply don’t want to have kids ever. That is totally fine too. I know the decision is dependent on a lot of factors. I know some people think this world is too ugly to bring a baby into it. To each their own, right?

No matter how ugly the world can be it can also be stunningly beautiful. I want to share the beauty of it with a family all my own. I want to raise children to have a life a little bit better than mine.

I am in no rush but becoming a parent is definitely something I am looking forward to.

Love Deeply and Forever,

Karen
