Something I seriously consider to be a 180 degree change is the fact that I, after years and years of saying no, (and I do mean since childhood), am thinking about having children. And not just one, but two or more. Since at a young age, I’ve never gotten all mushy with babies. I used to think something was wrong with me; that I didn’t have that natural element like most women had. At sixteen, I told my mother I don’t like kids and will never have any. She would always say, “when you’re older you’ll change your mind.” At twenty-one I said the same thing, and thus forth. But now as I’m slowly but surely approaching thirty I’m actually sitting back and rethinking having children. Something that I never thought I would do. I was the girl who wanted a nice little apartment with just me and my boyfriend/husband and a pet. I didn’t consider the fact that he would want babies and how hard it would be for him when I made the decision on both our behalfs not to.
Well, being that everything else about me is the same when it comes to my shy personality, artistic nature, and beliefs. I’d have to say the only 180 degree change is the fact that I NOW WANT BABIES. But first, I need a husband 🙂
