On the surface I can understand it. Most women I know want to be mothers, so I get why people are caught off-guard by those who don’t want to be. I just don’t understand the persistence that you must change your mind after you’ve said, “Nah, it’s not for me.” Just. Let. It. Go. (Side note: Thank you for respecting your sister’s opinion and not nagging her about it. My older brother is the same way.)
