The Kind of Mother I Hope to Be….One Day

  1. I think that you are going to be a good mom, after all you already have some good principles set out. You might be readier than you think.
    I am a bit shocked, or very much (I cannot even get my head around that, is the woman in question regretting motherhood?) that someone said that you are lucky that you can’t have kids.
    I guess it is best to not try to guess if a couple or person want kids or not.

    1. Thank you very much :)

      I have actually known a few women who did not plan on becoming mothers and feel burdened by their children. They think me and my girlfriend are lucky we can’t have kids. It hurts hearing that because we wish we could as easily as straight couples can :(

      We will one day though :)

  2. Raising a child isn’t hard. It’s the easiest, most natural, and most fun I’ve ever had. You have the right idea. Children are people, just like us and when we allow them to grow into who they are instead of molding them into who we wish we were… hahaha… that’s when parenting becomes a wonderful adventure to share rather than a task to be accomplished. Yes, you will mess up sometimes, everyone does. When you messup – fessup and your child seeing your mistakes will learn that it’s ok to be imperfect and that will help make their life easier too.

  3. I have never wanted children. I’ve always known that I did not want that responsibility. Always. Since Jr. High. I love your asterisk that people should not assert whether having children is lucky or not… to anyone!

    I believe I am an astute judge of myself in this regard, and that there are women not suited to motherhood. I know (off the top of my head) three men who gained custody of their kids after divorce, with no objection from the mother.

    1. I didn’t want children either, I like being able to do whatever I want whenever I want, but I happened to have fallen in love with someone who wants children very badly. So over the years (we’ve been together almost 14 years now) we have talked and talked and worked out what I am capable of and what she would like and have come to the conclusion that we want to have one or two but that she will need to have A LOT of patience with me. She seems fine with that lol

      I know a few women like that too, I also know some who hate being mothers and still have custody of their kids :(

      1. The key thing I read here is that you have a great partnership. I know that my parents have always been “my parents” and not just mom or dad. They made sure to have their arguments in private, and were a united front to us kids. I think you guys will do great – whenever the time comes!
