A friend of mine got married about 6 years ago. Just prior to him getting married we had a discussion about having kids. He couldn't believe that I didn't want kids, he thought that's what you do and it's all great. He even said it was selfish for me not to want kids. Fast forward 6 years and he has 2 daughters and to say the least his views have changed. He gets it and he even said that if he knew what he knows now he probably would have waited longer to have kids. He keeps saying it's one thing after another and if you don't want kids and you know that, make sure you don't have them because it's stressful. He of course he prefaces this by always saying "don't get me wrong I love my kids and it's so rewarding...." which people always tend to say.

All I know is a lot of people I know that have kids, get less sleep, more stressed, crankier then they were prior. I just don't see myself ever having kids, i'd constantly be worrying about everything.

I admire people that are good parents, it's definitely not easy and it never gets much easier because they are constantly changing and getting various outside influences and you just never know how they will turn out down the road. You could be doing all the right things but it's a bit of a crap shoot imo. I'd probably have a heart attack before I was 50. lol

Kids are easy.

It's being married that's challenging.

Mehh, I've lived with a couple women. I'll take that over married + screaming kids. lol

None of it is easy imo, but it's gotta be what you want.

And then you start to miss when they were teeny.
I find its all about working together with your partner and trying to establish good routines early. We've already started a sleep routine and she regularly sleeps at night easily save for feedings and even that follows a familiar pattern of 1 3 and 6 in the morning. Like I said I take the 1 and 6 and it allows tge wife to get her rest for the day.

It's already a bit easier than it was 3 weeks ago so I take some confit in that. Tge hardest part for me is just being separated during the day and feeling like I miss things. When you come hone and you see that coy smile it just does something to you.

I really want to buy a telescope, ( I think pzabs said it before too) I know nothing about telescopes and I don't want to spend more than 500$, any ideas?

how do you deal with a parents that ruins the basketball league for the kids by stacking their son's team with the best players and leaving only the scrubs behind? Basically around 60 kids are at this weekly league and the initial teams had his son's team getting slaughtered so he broke up the other teams and put them on his.

This kinda ruins the league for the kids when a whole team of kids that dont know how to play lose by 50+ and dont have fun. Like the parents pay 4 bills, I dont think they like it either.

These are elementary school kids in a rec league, this kids' parents are taking it way too seriously and are the ones acting classess on the sidelines.
