By Muk Khatri in Life Style On 5th September 2015

#1 People who assume you're a kid-hating psychopath.

Liking and wanting are two different things. Geesh.

#2 People ask if you have kids YET, as though it's inevitable.

Just say no and move on. It's not worth explaining.

#4 People get all smug when they tell you you'll change your mind.

Thanks for assuming I don't know what I want in life. You're so kind.

#5 Your parents whine, "But you'd be such a good mom!" and you're not sure what to say.

Because it makes you want to say "No I wouldn't!" but then that's a little weird.

#6 People ask if you want to hold their new kid, like it's gonna turn you or something.

"Look into my eyessss...you're feeling the urge to procreate...."

#7 Someone brags on their toddler, and you blurt out "My cat does that too!"

But, you know, it's totally different.

#8 New parents give you a look when you call their baby "it" rather than "he" or "she."

Like you just shot a puppy.

#9 Children ask "Where are your kids?" loud enough for the entire room to hear.


#10 Parents wail "Gee I wish I had time for that" when you talk about going to the movies/your weekend getaway/the last video game you played.


#11 People with kids feel the need to text, Facebook-message, and email you multiple pictures of their offspring.

I mean, how many times do I have to agree that they're cute?

#12 New parents act like they're in on some universal secret you don't know about yet.

We'll see who's smirking in 18 years.

#13 Your parents make a squealing gasp every time you say, "I have to tell you something."

No, not that, Mom. Geeze.
