I just read this amazing article on Huffington Post and I had to share it! It’s a list of dos and don’ts for people with children and their friends that don’t have kids. Here’s a tidbit to whet your reading appetite:
DON’T buy into to the myth that the lives of people with kids are awash with indescribable depth and meaning. Yes, we’re having an amazing and unique set of experiences, some of which are genuinely profound. Most of those experiences, however, are mundane and some are downright tedious.
This might be my favorite:
Have a bad enough week and you can crawl into bed Friday at 6 p.m. with a box of Chardonnay, some Hot Pockets and the remote control and not get up for three days. Your worst-case scenario is probably a nasty personal hygiene problem. If a couple of parents do the same thing, there’s a good chance that someone will die.
There are some other great ones, but I don’t want to steal the person’s whole article! Lol Click over there and read it yourself.
