Yep. Who else is going to take me to my doctors appointments? Come and have coffee with me? Distract me with their problems? Make my weekends hell by taking care of their kids? I mean call me crazy, but I want that. I've seen it happen to so many of my relatives that never had children, everyone else gets involved with their own family and life while their sitting over there in a lonely apartment b/c they got too scared in a lonely creepy old house after their husband died, and occassionally they babysit their great neices/nephews...knowin g full and well they are the absolute last resort b/c their so damn boring and self consumed b/c that's all they've had for the last 20 years, maybe they get a dog or a cat for xmas b/c their sad/lonely pathetic life is so utterly obvious to the rest of world. I know I married someone older than me and he won't be around forever, but I want his genes to have a chance at survival. Okay I admit I want children for selfish reasons, shoot me.
