10 Times You Will Regret Having Kids

By  | 

Saying that you regret having your children is not exactly the kind of sentiment that can be blurted out in your weekly knitting circle. At least not sober. A few glasses of wine and maybe it blubbers up in some of your weaker, more intimate moments between damn good friends. And that’s okay! Raising tiny humans is tough, tough business and fleeting moments of utter and all-consuming frustration are normal, despite what the mythologies of motherhood will have you believe. Here are 10 scenarios in which your regret is likely to pop up:

1. When you can’t go on that amazing vacation because you have to buy dumb things like groceries. And diapers.
