The best part about having kids? Grandkids. Get 'em all sugared up and hyper, then send them home. Preferably with a Mr Microphone.

Quantum Apostrophe: We are programmed to reproduce, and our brains are wired to get rewards from having kids.

'We' aren't all wired the same way. This world should be grateful not everyone has the desire to reproduce. The population would be 100 times the number we have now.

All of this pro family talk stinks of Christian anti-gay propaganda anyway.

What Is It Like To Be an Adult and Not Have Kids?

Nice, except for the annoying compulsion to tell everybody What Is It Like To Be an Adult and Not Have Kids.

Like... Having ice cream, and not needing to share it with anyone.

Like Christmas every day, because I have disposable income that doesn't go into buying the latest Trapper Keeper or clothes that will only last six months or fixing the little snot's broken arm.

Like being able to have nice things that some unappreciative little brat won't use to practice their sawing skills or bury them in the backyard on you (some conditions may apply depending on what type of pets you have).

Like doing what I want, when I want, and how I want, without having to schedule (or worse, attend) some god-awful 8YO's dance recital, or listen to "are we there yet?" or worry about where to find the next restaurant that serves all-chicken-fingers-all-the-time-because-the-little-snot-won't-eat-any thing-else.

Like I can have sex with my partner on the dining room table at 7pm and not worry about having DCYF show up in a 4am raid the next day.

Like never needing to apologize to Billy's mom that my precious dear little parasite broke Billy's nose with a watermelon.

What does it feel like? Y'know those fantasies you parents have about getting away from it all, just for a day or two, leaving the kids with grandma and just... sleeping in?

I live that every day.

Enjoy your choice. I sure as hell enjoy mine. :)

How are 2-3 dogs at a time not the same as having kids that never grow up?
You are constantly a caregiver.
