My decision to not have kids is primarily guided by the fear that my kids would despise me as much I do my own mother. I love kids. But I hear my mom in my voice sometimes when I speak to my friends' children, when I lose my patience. Before she died last year, My beloved grandmother (whom my mother openly despised when I was growing up) looked me square in the face and said, "I think you should really think about it before you have children. Are you sure?" It was liberating.
