I went to a house

Friends are nice to have. Friends with babies confuse me. The more time I spend with children, the less I understand why people want them. I mean, they're funny -- when they play peek-a-boo, for example -- but I can't deal with them for any more than a couple of hours. And they're always snotty and coughing and sneezing and spreading germs everywhere.

"they're always snotty and coughing and sneezing and spreading germs everywhere"

you obviously don't travel on public transport very often, 'cos you've just described 95% of the adult population travelling by London Underground.

I used to hate kids, but after being an au-pair and a nanny I realised you can learn so much from them! And kids are very straight forward, until they reach the age of 8 or 9. After that... yes some of them would need a bazooka.

I feel so bad for people who are aroundkids that don;'t have them..I always try to keep the kids away so they don't bother them. My dad was like so I would always make sure friends with kids weren't around...

Not everybody has to like being around kids...its okay!

I wonder every single day why I chose to have kids....

I guess that when you have them, something clicks "off" when it comes to the monotony of being with them 24/7. I don't regret having them, they are pretty funny. Even stranger, it is interesting to see which weird quirks they get from either parent.

My kids aren't the average "peek a boo" kids. Neither one of them do it. Most likely because I am like Cynnie and can't stand mindless repetition. I find that if you don't promote stupid games, the longevity for them dissipates.

Yeah, and that poop thing... It happens. Oh well... I still have more friends without kids than those that have them. I am not the kind of mom who loves other kids...

You two have never been at my house then.. LOL.. I hated when the girls hands got sticky and wet as you put it. but now as 3 and 7 they are pretty good at doing there own hands. They hate having dirty hands and faces.. And when I say you two I mean Cynnie and you Asterisk....LOL.. Kids can be fun but then again those of you who dont want them is best off not having any..

Babies I struggle to deal with and even worse when the parents ask "so which one of us does he look like?" Er, he looks like a baby, just like every other baby.

Much better when they get to about 5 or 6 years old but maybe that's just because I'm dealing with someone on my intellectual level.

Exactly why I don't want any of my own. I like that I can give them back when I've had my share of "kid time". Lord knows, I love my neice and nephew to death and would do anything within my power for them but I can only take about 4 hours and then I want to crawl home and escape from their world...I'm also extremely grateful they're out of the diaper phase.

Wasn't into kids at all. Then we had Jax.

Trust me. When you have a kid - especially when you see its head pop out - it's like nowt on earth mate.

Even at 18 they're your baby. Always will be.

There goes me street cred....
