Now I know why they say kids add meaning to your life. It has nothing to do with their impact on your life and everything to do with the fact that, if left to my own devices, I would have spend my morning like this:
sleep until 9am
9-10am: drink coffee while watching The View
10-11am: watch Nate Berkus
11-12pm: watch the Food Network
noon: eat lunch
Not much to remember about life there!
Of course I'm just kidding. Kids add meaning to your life because they have a TREMENDOUS impact on our days. I was joking before.
But seriously, maybe 5% of the meaning they add is because you actually DO something with your days??
Just a theory, of course. ;)
