    I used to dislike the the "bring your kids to work day". It was extremely distracting while trying to do your job. Once, an employee's little child triggered a fire alarm, we thought it was another terrorist attack. The FDNY showed up, as well.

    I wish we had Bring Your Kids to Work Day ... I'd "borrow" all of my friends' kids and let them wreak havoc on this place. :p

    LOL, it actually started out with "Bring your daughters to work day", the theory was that little girls need to be influenced to work, etc. Then it expanded to boys too.

    But I can understand your wish to see them run amok and destroy as much as they can. Unfortunately, I don't think we'd get away with "borrowing" kids, it doesn't work that way.

    No, you're right. My friends would be so relieved to not have their little hellspawn that I'd never be able to return them. I'd be stuck... well, child services would be stuck...

    Wait. What are the child labor laws looking like? I might be starting a business here real soon... :p:D

    You say you don't want kids. But when you get her pregnant and you become a dad, you will be a good one my friend. :)
    Just wait. I know I know "I don't want kids BC. I'll never have kids BC. No way. Not this guy." :D
    You'll see my friend. You'll see.

    10_3XL, if you don't want 'em, don't listen to this. Stick to your guns, shut the door to any suggestion of it, use condoms, and you'll make it. I provide concise, honest Child-Free relationship and lifestyle counselling as a public service. :cool:

    Without knowing you better I'd have to agree with Barent. We have way to many half-assed parents out here now. Have a child if that is what your heart (and hers) desires and only then. Keep on wearing that rain coat cause unfortunately not everyone that is a parent should be. But you better love that child if you do have one. That is all.

    Nope that's not all, I will add there's no other feeling in the world like when a child looks into your eyes unless it's those mornings you get to sleep in or not have breakfast or not go to the beach or not simply because you don't have a mini me dictating your lives.

    Ok that is all. Carry on with your regular scheduled programing ;)

    Btw, married 22 years and no kids. ...no kidding.

    I was just kidding around. I didn't mean for it to be taken seriously. I hope I didn't ruffle anyone's feathers. :confused:

    Thanks for the show of support on the Child-Free front.
    Nah, we're all good, BC. I knew you were just playin'. :D
    This is quite true for me, too. I mean it - I work with adults (21+) who have the minds of children (12 and under).

    Honestly, on the "No Kids" matter, D and I have talked about it. We both have our reasons for not wanting kids, and deciding on focusing our life's energy elsewhere. There are lots of factors from both of us that would be detrimental to raising a happy/healthy child. (Long list, pretty personal, won't bog down the Venting Thread with it all.)

    I would feel the same way, but things being the way they are, I don't regret anything.
