    "You'll change your mind." That's what everyone says to Jen Kirkman - and countless women like her - when she confesses she doesn't plan to have children. But you know what? It's hard enough to be an adult. You have to dress yourself and pay bills and remember to buy birthday gifts. You have to drive and get annual physicals and tip for good service. Some adults take on the added burden of caring for a tiny human being with no language skills or bladder control.

    Would you try another book from Jen Kirkman and/or Jen Kirkman?

    No.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I Can Barely Take Care of Myself?

    Everything after the first 10 minutes.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a bunch of anecdotes about Jen Kirkman's "wacky" childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood - it is NOT about having kids or not having kids, or any kind of validation or substantial thoughts about that decision making process. Very repetitive, self-deprecating humor that stopped being funny after the intro. This should have been a 10 minute comedy sketch - not a book. I gave up halfway through.
