Having just read the first half, I agree with everyone else here leaning their hopes on satire. I hope you are genuinely kidding.


You don't have kids so they'll one day invite you to live with them so they can rub your feet. And you can't hang your hopes for grandchildren on the promises of your own son when he is a little child.

Now, I knew when I was in elementary school I didn't want to have kids. When I was in my 20's, I sought out perminant sterilization. I'm in my 40's now and never changed my mind or regretted my decision.

My advice, I'd ease up on the grandchildren pressure mommy dearest, else your son may run for the hills the first chance he gets and won't come back.

No one wants to be told they will "change their mind" or they are "too young" to make decisions. He is in his 20's. He's an adult. He has a say whether or not he has kids. You, honestly, don't. He is his own person, not a miniature male version of you put on this earth to do your bidding.
