How Do I Know If I Want Kids?

The Cut


When you think about the question about whether you want to become a parent what comes up that is the mighty anna sale host of the podcast death sex and money and author of the new book. Let's talk about hard things and this week. I'm both death sex and money and the cut. We've each made different versions of this story. Exploring the lucky lucky privileged decision about whether or not to have kits because there are environmental reasons not to have kids and financial and logistical reasons. Not to have kids. But i really want to talk with anna about ambition because anna i have released similar jobs podcast host but she has two kids and manages to make creative work at the same time. Well i am entirely on the fence. I truly have no idea if. I wanna have kids or not. Is there part of you as someone who likes self identifies really deeply as an artist.

I think of like yoko ono in vivienne westwood and i don't think they were like the best moms because they were bouncing a lot of other things and yeah. Yeah yeah i think it.
