Just a few of the reasons I'm not sure I'm ready to have children:
I don't know all of my state capitals.
I don't know my 12's.
I don't know the first thing about nutrition.*
I'm not a morning person. Also, I get angry with people who mess with my sleep
I can't seem to stop swearing. Also, I don't want to.
Frankly, there are just a lot of things I don't know. I have a feeling our little guy is going to be curious and want to know things. His dad is this Oxford English Dictionary of information whereas I'm more like a Real Simple magazine. I break it down into the tidbits that interest me at the moment in a neat little sidebar and figure I can look it up again later if I need to know more. His first verb might be "Google" as in "I don't know honey, let's Google it."
*On the subject of nutrition, I was telling Matt about my concern. He responded without batting an eye. Because he is ready. And he doesn't over-think things.
"But how will I tell him 'Eat your carrots because they're good for you' if I don't remember exactly what they're so full of that's good for you?"
"You tell him they're good for his eyes and ask him if he's ever seen a rabbit wearing glasses. And don't forget the thing about all the vitamins hiding in the bread crust."
