Every night my husband and I talk about the many benefits of not having children. At first I could only think of the negatives but I’ve really gotten into this nightly game of ours. I thought I’d share some of our musings with you all.
We get to use as much foul language as we want in our house (and trust me, we use a lot of it). The dogs certainly aren’t going to go repeat anything we say to their grandma and grandpa.
We get to watch Dexter, The Walking Dead and American Horror Story without worrying about emotionally scarring someone for life.
I won’t need a boob-lift. Seriously, breast feeding does all kinds of horrible to your boobs. Mine will remain firm and perky for quite some time.
We can go on vacations that we will actually enjoy. No Disney Land for us! We can stay at those couples-only resorts and drink as many adult beverages as we want to.
Piper and Kabuki won’t have to compete with a small human for our attention. It would have been a very hard adjustment for them. We are pretty sure that they think they are human children.
The only cartoons in this house are South Park and Bob’s Burgers. Dora the Explorer will never be singing her annoying songs on our television.
The liquor cabinet will never require a lock.
We get to sleep in on the weekends. And naps. We get to take naps whenever we feel like it.
We will get to spend our money on things that are actually fun instead of paying for diapers and private schools.
It’s all about the silver linings. #Winning
