Kids are more work

I've been married for two and a half years now, and I've had to have the "having-a-kid conversation" with many people (right, Mom?). However, I didn't think this would be a conversation I would have with a seven-year-old this morning...or ever. Mind you, I had been awake for about an hour and managed to be at school for an early meeting when this conversation occurred:

M: "Is this a picture of your kids?"

Me: "No, I don't have kids. Just dogs."

M: "You're married, right?"

Me: "Yep."

M: "And you don't have kids? Is that because they're a lot of work?"

Me: "Yep."

She must hear that at home...

Kids are too funny. My grandson (age 3) just found out that he was once in his mother's tummy. he started yelling, "Want out! Want out!" His brother (age 6) recently asked me how babies come out. Tough one to answer for a six year old.

Yeah, that's not a question I want to answer! Good luck!
