Ick. I hate self-important posts like this.

Often I find that THE FACEBOOK is nothing more than a virtual grade-school clique.

OMG How true is this, I am seeing this more and more. Between my sisters and all the aholes from HS who have not changed since they peaked in HS.

Why give your fun away then? For an unappreciative child that didn't exist at one point in time therefore making it unnecessary to force in to this horrible world.



I don't find bar hopping or drinking very fun personally. My DH and I read to one another at bedtime, play board games, and watch movies. It's much more fun as couple.

I don't understand the point in posting such things, it's like they're trying to deny their misery and justify why they made those choices, who asked them to become parents? Sorry but fun for me is both going out partying and staying in watching films and playing board games. Fun is NOT having to endure the unending cries of babies or the constant attention-seeking of children.

Revised:

There comes a point in your life when "FUN" no longer means bar hopping, clubbing, being out til 4 a.m. or drinking too much. It means board games, movies, vacations to the Caribbean, going out for romantic dinners, and sleeping in until 11 a.m. (and then napping at 2 p.m.). Becoming a freethinker changes you. You realize that you don't need to follow the crowd or society's norms. You realize that the most important thing you can do for yourself is do what truly makes you happy. Re-post if you are PROUD to be someone who decided to not follow the herd and become a parent.

The revised version is perfect! Ahhh I love life. Cleaning up after my pets is enough for me.

Haha oh God, me too! The worst for me is parents who try to tell me how awesome their sex lives still are even after having kids. :roll:

One woman told me I was “so naïve I made her laugh” when I suggested that parents can’t have the same sex lives as non-parents.

I’m sorry, but you can’t bend your wife over the kitchen table and have spontaneous, passionate, loud sex with her in the middle of the day while your kids are in the next room watching tv. Ain’t gonna happen. 8-)

Did she have an episode of incontinence when she laughed? I hear having a kid will do that to you.

Haha I will have to ask her! I just told her I thought it was incredibly unnecessary to patronise me. :P
