DH and I have been together for 15 years.  After hearing that, most people are surprised to learn that we don’t have kids… and we’re not planning on having them any time soon.  I always want to have a snappy comeback to that inevitable question (“but why?”).  Unfortunately I’m much too polite to be so rude.  I usually respond with something lame like “It’s a personal decision.”

Most adults will stop asking once they’ve heard that response.  Or, if they’re closer to us they have had the specific reasons for a child-free life enumerated.  My 6yo niece, on the other hand doesn’t quite get it.

She’s a bit upset with us for not having kids right away.  As she put it “I don’t wanna be the baby any more!”  Oh well.  I think she relaxed a little when I said that we don’t want to have kids right away because we want to be able to spend lots of time with her and her brother.

I love my monkey.  She’s cute.
