    but ya gotta admit that it's honest. Now, I love children. They're so refreshingly open and amazing critters. I just didn't like HAVING children. One of those morning, noon, evening, middle of the night sickness sufferers so bad I lost 30 pounds before gaining an ounce with either of mine, born just 14 months apart. Then pain, blood, constant exhaustion - for years! - and... shitty diapers.

    Figured out right away that this could go on until it literally killed me, which wouldn't be very long. So I got it fixed at the ripe old age of 23. Decided that I like children best already housebroken, so adopted three siblings later and raised way more than my share (including first grandson).

    There's a lot to be said about the value of children themselves, and raising children if you've a knack. There's not much positive (IMO) about being pregnant and having babies. That's why it so often happens to people who are amateurs - nature's way of ensuring species survival now that there's birth control and women can choose. Given human population levels, we're in no danger of extinction just because women have choices.
