I've had three friends today post some crap on FB about how great their children are and how their lives and their hearts would be empty if they didn't have children. One of them posted on the other's site that she felt sorry for people without kids.

Why? Why does it have to be like this? Can't you just be happy that you had kids and be ok that I don't? Why do you have to feel better by acting like my husband and childless life is less than?

I say this on my way to a Thanksgiving where I am the oldest and the only single person and the only one w/o kids. The only topic allowed is the children, although the men are allowed to watch football. I hide in the kitchen cooking and leave as early as possible.
