Not Having A Baby Checklist: Is The Timing Really Right?

I'm a little conflicted about the whole thing. Not having a baby is a big responsibility, and the timing is as important as anything else!

I mean, maybe I should have not had a baby earlier. Was it irresponsible of me? To wait until now to not have a baby? I start to think forward, counting the years of school, college, this and that. I don't want to be in a position where I'm doddering and feeble by the time the baby I don't have is not graduating college!

I mean, I'm not there yet. It's not like I'm 40, 50, 60 years old, but I'm not a spring puppy like I was, either!

It's a hard thing to think about, because then you start to worry about the logistics and the whole ticking-clock thing. Then the next thing you know, you may end up making a poor decision badly. Basing it on panic, and not on sound and responsible concerns. Don't do it! Panic never solves anything! Not really. It just leads to goof-ups and regrets.

Any big life decision needs calm consideration, and maybe only a small amount of panic, if any. The last thing you want is to rush into not having a baby.

So I have to seriously think about this. Am I doing the right thing here? Or rather, am I not?


  1. I think I'd wait a little longer to not have a baby..... Like until you're completely financially stable.

  2. Yeah! That's a great idea.

    Hm. I'm not sure a person who's not completely stable in the other major areas can ever be completely financially stable.
