    Thank god wife is a SAHM…I have no idea how people manage with daycares and 2 working parents.
    It is very difficult. If one of us can stay home for the whole day, then we burn a vacation day. If we have critical stuff we have to be at work for, then we'll split the day. My wife is her own boss and I have a very understanding manager at my work, so we can make it work... but it is very hard.

    Kids are hard. The fun thing is raising them keeps being hard but the things that make it hard change.

    im lucky my wife is still on mat leave. but i agree, one of my employees is dealing with it right now i feel bad, i need him here but his wife just went back after mat leave so its tough for her to miss work too. Both their kids were sick as well.

    Kids are legit hard, but fuck the cute shit they do just melts my heart haha, big softy now.

    I partially chalk it up to being the age where everyone is having kids so its more apparent to us all the sick kids haha

    I think people underestimate how awesome and financially accessible it is to have only one working parent. The costs of daycare/nanny/extra time off etc is no joke.

    There are reasons other than money to have two working parents as well, I realize. That was the case in our house for sure.

    The person you were and would become is gone forever. All that is left is the inevitable drudgery and entertaining the delusion that things might be different for you than the countless generations that came before.

    I think this is bullshit, itís easy to have a life balance between kids and a social life.

    No, but I have friends who have and managed just fine, social time never changed.

    But the guy you replied to RIP, was having just one, so not sure why you make this comment.
