I know you could babysit, but…

In order to convince you that parenthood won’t be too much work, your parents might promise that if you have kids, they’ll babysit all of the time to help you out. First, you may need to point out the irony in their offer, which is that their argument is “If you have kids, you barely need to see them — we’ve got this!” Ehhh….you know what’s another great way to not be around kids all the time? To not have them. So your plan kind of trumps theirs. Furthermore, they know damn well, as do you, that they simply cannot be there to help with child-rearing duties all of the time. They may babysit a bit on weekends, but you’ll be the one doing 99 percent of the work and that’s that.
