>Check out the cover of my new bible…..er I mean Macleans Magazine.

Macleans is obviously looking to stir the pot with it’s cover story called “The Case Against Having Kids” written by Anne Kingston, and from what I’ve been reading online, they can consider the pot stirred.

You can read the article online and then weigh in on the conversation. I think it certainly raises some valid points and perfectly captures the ideas and feelings of my generation, especially those of us that aren’t afraid to hold off on the baby, at least for the time being. It’s really no different than choosing to live in a house or a condo. Big city or small town. To eat fast food or not. There are decisions that involve a lot of thought and consideration, yet the decision to have kids or not has always seemed like it was really about right or wrong. It doesn’t seem like it can be both can it?
Here is an excerpt from the article featuring Elaine Liu, from Lainey Gossip.
“Elaine Lui was 29 years old and had been married for a year when she and her husband, Jacek Szenowicz, decided that they didn’t want children. “Before that, we didn’t give it a lot of thought,” says the Vancouver-based eTalk reporter who writes the popular celebrity gossip blog LaineyGossip.com. “It was just an assumption, ‘You get married, you have kids.’ ” Front-line exposure to a close relative’s three young children and the work they required provided a wake-up call, Lui says. “That killed it for us. We just looked at each other and said, ‘We don’t want them.”
Definitely a great way to start a conversation among your friends.
Let’s just hope Kate Gosselin doesn’t read the magazine.
