People who have kids

12 Dec

When people go on and on and on about how difficult it is having kids, I want to punch them in the face.

Fair enough, I get that you have perhaps had only two hours’ sleep in the past six years, but consider the following:

  1. You decided to have these children.
  2. You are fortunate to have them.
  3. Your Facebook statuses are boring me.

I particularly hate when people say, “Oh, you’re so lucky. You have no idea what it’s like!”

You’re right. I don’t. Because I go home every night to an empty flat, eat cereal for dinner, and watch MTV for company. Yes, I have more disposable income and I get a lot more sleep than you. But I would trade it all for what you have. In a heartbeat.

Don’t moan to me about having a happy family.

You sound like an asshole.

    Oh God! This is so true. It’s what everyone thinks, but no one dares say.

    It’s why I stopped having kids after I had the first one. With that being said; when she’s at her fathers, I don’t know what to do with myself. It’s lonely. It sucks. But I’m not having anymore lol
