Because I am home alone with my nephew (he's asleep now) I have had time to do some Facebook stalking. While I have been creeping on some people I knew, or VERY VAGUELY knew, from high school I have seen an overwhelming pattern. EVERYONE HAS HAD/ IS HAVING A KID!!
I guess condoms, or birth control, or marriage is not a big deal to anyone who went to my High School.
I/ we graduated in 2008, I think popping out babies a year or two after graduation had become a trendy thing. I personally don't get it. YOU ARE 20 YEARS OLD! Live your life a little before having a kid. Or at least make a conscientious effort to deter pregnancy(which maybe they were, who knows, but the number of girls with babies makes me question).
I don't know. Maybe I am being Judgy McJudgerson but I am starting to feel like babies are the new accessory among my fellow '08 Grads.
(Hope nobody takes offense. I am all for people exercising their right to procreate, but I do think your teens/ early twenties is too early to have a child, especially when the average life expectancy is 78.7 years. T and I both can wait a few more years before we start a family. There is too much stuff in the world that we haven't explored yet!)
