Having a kid is pretty great

When I had a kid, I figured the "baby" stage would suck, but it would get fun once they are able to comprehend the world a bit, be mobile, and communicate.

But its actually pretty great, even with only a 5 month old. The first 2 months its a new thing, then after that they get a personality and are able to communicate, even if its non-verbal.

People like to bitch, but its actually awesome. FYI.

I love hanging out with my nephews. I do not ever want to give up my time to a kid. And before any of you idiots say “hurr durr you love it when it’s your kid so much it’s different” I know. Your body chemistry changes to make you love it. I’d be a great dad. It’s not a potion I want to drink. Miss me with having to spend 18 years worrying about someone else.

Babies and toddler's kinda suck. I like kids better around age 4.

Thats what I figured, but hasnt been my experience. Hopefully I am right in that they become more enjoyable as they get older, but its been smooth sailing so far.

The first 6 months of my first kid's life were the most depressed I had ever been, ever.

Have three kids now and everything is great.
