Be careful what you wish for

Having no experience as a parent, now and again I feel a consequent loss with no kids or grandkids in my life, no soccer games to go see, no kid to mentor or spoil ... and then I observe the lives of parents around me, astounded by how many families are dysfunctional today, astounded by the stress rather than joy that children can bring to the lives of adults who participate in their own grief by wearing blinders to certain facts clearly plain to a neutral observer like myself; I see how much more simple my life is, and I think, well, maybe not being a parent isn't so bad after all. Maybe next incarnation.
