i heard a bunch of kids playing outside last night, and it kinda made me feel a way about how things could have been.
i often find myself torn between the joyous freedom and flexibility of my kid-free life, and the wonder i feel around the experience of pregnancy, birthing and mothering.
but, all things considered, i've decided that kids are, at best, optional. at worst, they're a statistical improbability.
emotionally, it's not so cut and dry.
