"'JUST WAIT until you have kids of your own...' people always used to tell me. I was convinced this phrase implied it was some kind of curse or something. I was way too much of a kid at heart to picture myself as somebody else's parent. 'These kinds of things slow a person down,' I thought. 'I'll have to grow up' I thought. I simply knew I would have to correct some fundamental flaw in my character to live up to such an adult responsibility. I was wrong and they were right: it was definitely worth the wait."
