Why don't friends with kids have time?

You know, the thing about having kids is that it's hard to know where all the time actually goes. Diapers and feeding and cold coffee and shopping and laundry--boom, suddenly 24 hours goes by. On the other-hand, sometimes, like with a
difficult toddler, it's hard to know where all the extra time is coming from! If someone asked me this question (assuming it wasn't my husband bc the result of that would not be so good--or quiet) I'm not even sure I'd be able to sum up where all that time went, but Carolyn does a pretty good job at it.

    Oh my gosh, that was amazing! I definitely judged pre-kids...looking back now, I had NO IDEA. Even getting the groceries unload is a new feat.

      Alison, It's amazing how much we often think we know about things when we really have no idea. I'm guilty of doing this and I've had a bowl of humble soup after! I certainly had no idea kids would be so tough. You can't really know until you've had them, and even then you still have no idea what other parents are going through this their own kids.

    Other people don't understand the joy and the life of having kids.
