A friend asked me if I ever regret having kids. I said, at least once a day I probably think, "if I didn't have kids...(something would be a lot more awesome or at least easier)" but at the same time, having a family of my own has totally changed my life in an indescribable way. In spite of all the noise and the lack of sleep, this is the happiest I've probably ever been. Obviously not every moment is happy. Some moments I want to throw stuff through a wall. But in general, kids just put life's little stresses into perspective. And make me want to be a better person. I just love my family like crazy. Even more than I love sleeping through the night or quiet or convenience.
