“It costs us $750 a week for daycare.” “We spend $500 a week on diapers and formula.” “It costs so much to have Kids.” Oh, thank goodness for telling me just how expensive it is to have a child. I will run right away and tell G that after numerous years of trying to conceive that I no longer want to have a baby because they are just too costly! If only someone would have told me before we spent tens of thousands of dollars on fertility treatments!!!
“I don’t know how I am going to make it through the terrible twos…are you sure you still want kids?” I’m sorry that your kid just through a hissy fit at the restaurant, but I do appreciate you asking me if I was sure I wanted to have a baby. I was just sitting here trying to decide if I still wanted to have kids. I was positive that all children were perfectly well behaved at all times.
“I haven’t slept in the last 4 years…kids are so exhausting” “We haven’t had sex since the day I found out I was pregnant…now the baby is 2.” “Send your kids to daycare and they will be sick all the time.” Oh thank goodness for telling me all these things…Hold on while I run and tell G that I no longer want kids because they are hard work. I was under the impression that being a mother was so easy and our lives would not change at all!
Once again, thank you fertile mommies for letting me know that kids are snotty, sticky, poopy, pukey, smelly, whiney, cranky and costly. I am sure that had you known all these things before you became pregnant you would not have wanted children either. For the record…bring on all those adjectives to describe what kids are. We absolutely can’t wait!!!!
