Sounds like you hang out with assholes
Yeah dolt, I had 4 kids " on accident " . That may happen In the part of town you live in , not mine
love your candy btw, bro
Having a strong opinion one way or another is stupid.
Not having kids and preaching about it is more stupid however. Never experienced it, yet so sure. Sounds like a pussy to me.
I've never had it
Have you done any sleep training? I've done more research than I should on the subject, but once I applied it, I had mine sleeping through the night at around 4 months and our sleep cycles synced around 1.5 months. The only problem is your wife can't be involved, because women have a stronger reaction to babies crying. It's pretty much a dad only task. Also, if your wife is breastfeeding, forget it, they won't sleep through the night until after 2 years.
It's "by accident." You do things "on purpose" or "by accident."
You more you protest, the more right I am convinced I am.
But it is
I agree with this. I could have ridden out the rest of my life and would have been happy as well. Especially at the age I was, I didnt think it was going to happen and it was fine anyway. When I met my wife I thought even if we just spend our lives traveling and doing our thing I'd be fine with it. Life is a trade off and kids are like that. You gain a lot and you lose some of the freedoms and relationship dynamic that you had. But in the end, I def get your point.
I laugh anytime I see a sticker on a car that says dog is smarter than your child. I always think to myself if someone splatters your dog all over the highway no one is doing shit. If a kid gets hit by a car, they're shutting the fucking highway down.
I have a a few in my family who never had kids and didn't regret it. You're reaching with some of this shit and attempting to come off as a to each their own type but then turn around and resort to this nonsense.
And don't skip the grammar lessons with the little ones. #pacience
Yep, breastfeeding. And co-sleeping. We dun messed up
However, you're correct about leaving the wife out of it, not just because she can't handle it (though, she can't), but because when my daughter senses wifey nearby she can't be put down in her crib, unless she's just exhausted.
When my wife travels for work, as she is this week, I can put her down no problem. She still wakes up twice a night, but she is much easier to soothe back to sleep and doesn't need to be fed. If the wife is home she won't go back to sleep unless she nurses.
I long for that 12 hour sleep-fest I hear is eventually coming...
I didn't imply that it was done in this specific thread, but brought it up in comparison to what the OP is talking about. People who bring up the topic of kids uninvited, whether it be "When are you going to have kids?" or "I'm glad I never had a kid" are usually seeking reinforcement to their decisions.
It gets better, my kids are 5 and just now they are letting me sleep for about 7 hours...
Oh no , whatever shall I do to convince you ? Tell me again why what you think matters to me other than the entertainment value of the discourse?
Ill iterate it one more time because you're a little slow , and sometimes it benefits slow people to see things in a condensed format.
Have kids or not , its a personal choice and either one is cool. There really is nothing more to be said on the subject, as the pros and cons are so subjective in nature.
The rub in this case is when some queer ( you ) stumbles in to the discussion and starts running his man pleaser about how much kids suck and that a majority of the people that have them are unhappy and they say otherwise they clearly must be being dishonest ect ect . Naturally someone that's had a different experience would want to correct said queer in his assertion.
Now I realize that I've gotten you all agitated now , " gotten too" I think is what they are calling it these days. So go ahead and tell me again how You've divined this or that about me from our interaction in an attempt to " rustle " me.
Its important to me that you feel that you are doing well here!
But all parents say that because they want you to be miserable as well.
No, it's because having a kid is the most amazing and therefore potentially terrifying thing in our existence. Itis lifes very purpose.
So to be without child is either choice, ie recognition that you are defective ergo it's kids that are the problem (displacement).
Or, design, therefore kids are terrible rather than face mine own horror (displacement).
And so yes, a bit, because people talking up their kids force the spotlight on the person without and that discomfort forces a defensive response.
Ill agree with that. That's a far cry from disagreeing with someone that claims having kids is analogous to getting diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Lotta sour grapes in this thread.
I do think that kids arent for everyone. And I think people that try to convince them are basing it off of their own experiences. I do believe to each there own here.
