36. I have kids and glad I do
Kids aren't for everyone. I have a cousin who decided to not have kids because they didn't fit in with her plans for her life. Every once in a while she would call and ask if she could take my kids out for the day. It turns out she missed not having children of her own and was "renting" mine to fill that emotional need. I finally had to tell her that when you have kids it means taking the good with the bad and taking my kids out for some fun was like having her cake and eating it too. I told her to try and come over to spend some time with them when they were sick or not in the best of moods.
