more an off my chest than a childfree

My wife and I never wanted kids. Her sister and brother in law passed away a year from eachother. One from liver failure the other from cancer. We now have a broody 16 year old living with us.. we are trying to give her a good life but low key can’t wait until she can live on her own. Being child free was awesome and an intentional choice.

There are a lot of great times we spend together but we are not parent material and it really hurts our souls because we don’t want to fuck the kid up . We treat her like an adult and are trying to teach her the difference between punishment and natural consequences. We don’t know what the fuck we are doing.

Sometimes life gives you kids even if you don’t want them. We are going to do and hope for the best… t – 1.5 years hahaha

Kids are fucking crazy and expensive.. sorry for the rant.
