On Birthing

I am a few plus months in to the whole marriage thing, and Monk and I don’t even speak about realistically trying to have kids.   Is this natural?   Here is the impression I have of couples with babies in the nearby geographic area that I live in:  No travel, Boring, Mundane.  I feel like if you have had your eyes on kids your whole life than of course having kids, gushing and blogging about them is the best thing that ever happened to you.   But what if, before ever considering children, you are living the life you want to live and can think of nothing else that would make you happier?

Should you still have kids?  This is the scary question, the argument is, “of course, this would be the best possible environment to raise your kids in.”

So instead, Monk and I opt to talk about the end result, and do nothing to initiate it and everything to avoid it.  We talk about how are kids are going to be the coolest world educated non-brats around.  Except if we question one another about making them, we light-heartedly opt out.

Is there anyone else out there like me?
