So I am 27.
Career focused and in a wonderful relationship that allows for this.
Being my age, I also have a lot of friends who are at the point of having kids.
Thanks to Facebook, I get to see all these happy people and their beautiful children, many whom I love.
And shows me what I am missing.
Thank you, Facebook for showing me all the pregnancy pictures, hospital photos, endless baby pictures. Then you have the walking, pooping and sickness statuses.
I can tell my women friends are happy. That is evident in these endless posts since they wouldn’t be doing it if they weren’t happy.
My boyfriend and I have talked about it and we want kids. My boyfriend also wants me to concentrate on becoming the best journalist I can be. So why do I let the endless posts about babies and spit-up make me question that.
It also makes me wonder, can I have both.
I see a future of traveling to interesting places and talking to interesting people.
Can I become the best journalist I can be while also being the best parent I can be. Will my best be enough on either fronts?
