I Can Barely Take Care of Myself by Jen Kirkman

Jen Kirkman does not want to have kids. Contrary to popular belief, she will not regret this decision or change her mind. Unfortunately for Jen, most people don't understand that stating "I don't want to have kids" is not an invitation to debate. Fortunately for us this means she has a book full of stories about how and why she doesn't want to have children.

Fans of the Chelsea Lately show will recognize Jen's sarcasm and dark sense of humor. From growing up with anxiety (mainly from watching The Day After) to paying extra on vacation to be near the adults only pool with disastrous results, each of her stories builds on the fact that no, she does not want to have kids, and no she will not change her mind.

Readers looking for a light read after one too many baby showers and toddler birthday parties will enjoy I can Barely Take Care of Myself.
