I feel sorry for you

You say kids are annoying (other people’s kids, that is).
You say kids are expensive.
You say you want to enjoy your freedom.
You say you aren’t the parent “type.”

Enjoy your quiet house, your shiny wood floors, your pristine white walls.
Enjoy your dinner parties, your spa vacations, your sports cars, your fancy clothes and hi-tech electronics.

I just don’t understand why people make the decision to not have kids. I understand that everyone wants different things, but what they don’t understand is that they don’t understand.

They don’t understand that when you see your child for the first time, you are instantly in love. A deeper love that you can ever imagine.

They don’t understand that that love grows more and more each day you have with them.

They don’t understand how strong of a bond they could have with another person.
How good it feels to hold a tiny hand, or get a kiss from tiny lips or hear those tiny words say “Mommy.”

Hey, to each his own. I’m not here to judge (for once). But, I can’t help but feel sorry for people who decide not to have kids because it doesn’t fit with their lifestyle. They just don’t understand what they are missing.
