This is so painfully patronizing to read it literally hurt my eyeballs. (Could be allergies though. I am quite sniffy, so it’s only a matter of time before my eyes start itching.)

Would you respond this way if the author was male? Why would the luster fade on doing things you like fade if you don’t have kids? Do people lose the urge to go places and do stuff if they don’t have kids? My parents are now retired and have taken up glamping (complete with twinkle lights and an astroturf travel yard) with a vengeance, even thought they have two children. Is this in spite of my presence or because they desperately want to get away from me?
