Me & my underutilized uterus are doing more than fine!

Sometimes I wonder if I'll have kids of my own. I can count on one hand the times in my life that I have felt a little uterus pang regarding this topic, so it's not something that I feel like I'm missing out on. I leave it up to fate, because while I'd love having a healthy, committed, long-term relationship with a man (do those still exist?), I don't need my own kids to round that out or to make me feel "whole".

I'm sure a huge part of not having an insatiable need for my own kids is because I can't imagine bringing anyone better into this world than my 2 nephews, and trust me when I tell you that I've never said anything more truthful than that. They're such good, fun-loving, smart, interesting, sometimes challenging (in a good way) people.

They're totally different from each other (and somewhat indifferent TO each other, but they'll grow out of that) just like their mom & I were at their ages-- and both, in their own ways, tremendous young men who have made my life... well, that's just it: THEY'VE MADE MY LIFE.

So, if I never have kids of my own, it's okay. For real.

Case in point:

Obviously, my nephew Jason (15) has incredible taste. Dylan (17) does, too, but he hasn't seen that status update yet. Also, they have more than one aunt, so it's not an empty/brown nose-y compliment. That ish is REAL.

Beat that, mothertruckers. Oh, wait. You can't. ;)

OMG, was this tonight?? This is awesome.

Seriously, my eyes are tired of being wet.

Well, whatever will be will be, but if you happen to skip the whole bebe thing, then we can be be #ballers4life together! :)

Also, just wondering: does the fact that you are fb friends with your nephews mean that you are not allowed to put curses in your status updates? Cause that shit would be HARD.

@Missy: I know, RIGHT? I should've purchased stock in Kleenex before this year began.

@Erica: Oh, dude, you are so right. #ballers4life!!! :) ...and NO, I'm "allowed" to put whatever the hell I want in my facebook status update. Did you not see what I had up there yesterday?! Seriously, check it. They don't judge me (or if they do, they keep it to themselves) and I don't judge them. Long as it's legal, it's all good with me. :)

@Erica: Believe me, they've heard/read a curse or two. Or a thousand. :)

@Erica @Missy: They've even said a few! haha

This post is full of awesome. I myself have 3 kids, and I am a narcissist from way back. However they make my world spin. I admire you and your being so comfy with yourself you don't need to produce children to feel alright. I have 2 friends in their late 40's no kids. By choice. Which means they spoil my kids rotten. Your a flipping groovy aunt.
