There’s a lot of things we could do if we don’t have children. We can take naps in the middle of the day (my husband works crazy hours). We can watch whatever we want whenever we want on television. We can spontaneously leave the house whenever we feel like it and take a day trip to the snow or beach and not worry about bedtimes and appropriate snacks and packing for three.
Not only could we get another dog but we could probably pay off the majority of our debt quite a bit faster. We could travel more exotically. We could buy more impractical things if we so chose.
We can eat froyo for a midday snack and skip dinner.
In the end though, would it all be worth it?
To love and live so freely and happily?
