That said, I wanted to reiterate that the above glurge is why *I* had kids. I have no desire to push "aw, but having kids is the BESTEST" on anyone, and I have friends who are happily childfree (although it grinds my gears that they have been called "abominations" by "well-meaning" friends... WTF?!).

My ex was all, "Well, it's nice that she sails around the world and has cocktails in Costa Rica while watching the monkeys overhead, but what a shallow existence because she doesn't have kids." Uh, what?
