This is why you need to have kids when you are young...
I think nature intended for us to have children early in our reproductive years. That is why teens and young adults in their 20s are so into reproductive-type activities. When you have children at 25, by the time you hit menopause and all the craziness that goes along with it, your kids will be out of the house and on their own (hopefully!).
When you have kids when you are older (like I did...), you run the risk of them still being at home (and always WANTING things from you!) when you become menopausal.
When you are having hot flashes and feeling stressed out and it is 103 outside and you are trying to do 6 things at once, you do not take kindly to two teenagers sitting on their butts in front of the TV and asking you what's for dinner!
And when the hummus falls out of the refrigerator (because one of them did a sloppy job of putting it away) and spills all over that floor and onto your shoe, you just might explode at them!
That could cause irreparable damage to the relationship.
So have kids when you are young. :-/
