Kids Ruin Paint

Look, I love my kids. Do I regret having them? No. Are they the best thing that’s ever happened to me? Also no. Kids are great but they’re also a lot of work, a lifelong commitment and frustrating as all hell. I’m sick of people not being honest about what it’s like to have kids. …
