I don't regret the monkey, but I wish I'd discovered bipedalism and FUN before him.

Yeah, but you know that he's going to be independent and have his own fucking life when you're barely 35. It's kind of amazing when they reach the age where they're saying "Mom, weren't you going out tonight? Get out".
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

All appearances to the contrary, I'm a domestic creature. It's when I don't have someone to cook for and snuggle on the couch with that I get all crazy.

This is how I know it was a damn good idea to have kids. Little fuckers settled me RIGHT down.

I'd sure like to have the other half of that, too.

And your kids are fucking awesome, at that.

I love the little assholes. Great little assholes, they are.

There is that to look forward to, and also the ride to enjoy.

My mom and I are exactly 20 years apart (okay, 19 years and 51 weeks, but still). It makes it kinda awesome knowing that next summer, we'll be turning 30 and 50 at the same time. I LOVE partying with my mom, we have a fucking BLAST.

Never regret children. They make you a stronger person.

Well, shit. I was too young when I was old enough, and several miscarriages after we figured it out, I guess we're just hoping for robots.

That's not what I meant. I can't have kids, either.

I think he's implying that people without kids just aren't strong, or CAN'T be stronger people without them. Which is not at all what I implied.

I have a headache. I'm going to bed.

Sorry, everyone. Just killed a bottle of wine, and am feeling a bit melancholy. And I think I spelled that wrong, too.

Long story short. I retract the passive/aggressive post. Kids are awesome. We can't have them.

Everyone says "enjoy them while they're little" but frankly, I find that they get more and more fun the older they get.

Aw. :(

Listen... if I hadn't had them, I'd probably have To The Walled myself to death by now. The strength they gave me was the strength I needed to survive. You guys had that without having kids, and also, you have each other.

ETA:  Totally this.  Kids are great, but there's a great big hole where an Other should be, which is not and should never be a place to put your own kid in, IME.

Don't be sorry.

Not being able to have kids with miscarriages on top of that is an unimaginably painful thing to have to deal withyour bitterness seems completely valid.

Cut yourself some slack, Alphapance.
