Depends on what kind of fun we're talking about.Definitely missing out on a lot of fun w/o kids,
some one rep n00ky for me please.We love children, just other people's. It does get old explaining why we don't want any. I grew up in a large family, 10 siblings (yes Catholic) and I am the youngest. I have so many nieces and nephews I can't remember them all lol and I always either babysat or grew up with kids of all ages in my life.
One thing that is annoying is the phrase "you never had kids so don't tell me how to raise mine" we hear that a lot from family. I submit that it doesn't take a genius to know that if you plop adult-sized portions on a 6 years olds dinner plate and tell them to eat it all before you even know if they like it isn't rocket science lol my brother does it all the time.
Yeah, but then there's the time that the kid hits his first home run, or scores half the points in the basketball game and you see how thrilled they are and it makes the endless drudgery seem worth it. And it's not like you're doing the shuttling for the rest of your life, even though it seems like it sometimes.Depends on what kind of fun we're talking about.
I have friends that miss out on a lot of good times on the weekends because they have to shuttle their kids to (in their own words) "f'ing volleyball or g--d-mn gymnastics".
