Poll: What’s your favorite part about having kids?
  • 12% - The things they teach me. 166
  • 14.5% - The things I do with them. 201
  • 9.2% - The things they say. 127
  • 20.5% - The cute things I see when they don’t think I’m watching. 284
  • 10.3% - Knowing that when they turn 18, they’ll leave the house forever. 143
  • 33.5% - I don’t have any kids, and yet, I’ll throw a fit in the forums if I can’t answer a poll somehow. 465

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I hate kids, but I love answering the polls.

Don't kid yourself about, "when they turn 18."

I don't care how much you love your kid, one eye is on college or whatever it is that gets the kid out of the house, but that's okay, because the other is trying to soak up every fun moment at each stage of development.

When I turned 18 my stuff was on the porch when I got home, with a cake.

I hope so.

Oddly, most of my daughters friends never moved back after college.
She didn't.

All of my son's friends did.

There are tons of post college guys living at home.

Or they move out and realize they can't afford it and move back.

No greater love is lost than that not shared.
