It’s true when people say that you don’t have a life if you’re a parent to small children. And truthfully, I’m ok with that. I haven’t had a date night in months with my husband, I haven’t seen an adult movie in who knows how long and I don’t remember what my favorite Indian restaurant looks like just because I haven’t been there in such a long time!
But because babysitters cost as much as root canals these days, I’m OK with sitting at home with my kids. That’s because I know that eventually they’ll grow up to be teenagers who want nothing to do with me and that’s when I’ll be able to enjoy my downtime and freedom once again. For now though, they are all stuck to my hip. And that’s OK because I really have no desire to do anything that would require me to leave them with someone else.
As you can imagine though, not everyone feels the same way. That’s why so many people are outraged after hearing that one couple shut their baby in a changing room locker so they can go for a swim at a public pool. I mean, WTF?!?!
