Pros and cons...

If you don't have kids, you

  • don't have to share your bed with a kid who is as peaceful as an octopus caught in a net
  • don't have to have fish fingers again this week
  • don't have to get up in the middle of the night to give that unfortunate kid a shower and change his / her linen
  • don't have to receive tons of drawings "especially for you" every day...
  • don't have to feel totally inadequate and a right failure just because you're a parent
on the other hand, if you don't have kids, you

  • don't get to share your bed with a kid who calms down just because of you and wraps his / her arms around you
  • don't get to eat fish fingers because you're expected to do sushi
  • don't get to cuddle that fresh-showered towel-clad kid up and watch him / her go back to sleep in your arms
  • don't get to receive tons of drawings especially for you every day...
  • don't get to feel totally loved and unique just because you're a parent

I guess there are ups and downs to everything...

I got the feeling that some of the cons weren't really cons but pros :)

Oh, you're singing in a choir - that's so cool! I'd love to do that :)

I'm really looking forward to when my kid starts creating special drawings just for me, instead of trying to eat her crayons.
