    If a couple knew what it was like to raise children instead of what they think it will be like, there would be no next generation. The delusion is a result of genetic evolution to preserve the next generation.

    Oh my. Don't let them know that all water on the planet is contaminated with dihydrogen monoxide, which can be fatal when inhaled in small quantities. Or that all salt water contains hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide. And that all helium balloons contain alpha and beta particles.

    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Man, you shouldn't be too much worried.
    I have no children and yet the prospect of getting up at 7:00 scares the hell out of me!

    I know that because of having triplets, I learned the art of napping at red lights...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    No, I did/do that at my desk between steps of the carbon process... (our safelights are amber).

    Not necessarily... but I suspect my kids would be a bit lonely.

    Love my guys, now 9 and 13. Yes, I am years behind in my printing backlog, and the negs are what you get while going with the flow that is family life.

    Consider signing on for a postcard exchange or group print exchange.
    Then there is a fixed deadline to put something out.

    You will be experienced at mutli tasking and breaking big tasks into manageable bites to advance between interupptions that are usually called parenting moments.
    Kids gives you that skill in spades (or can) .

    I find that postcard exchanges are about the only me time I can claim to get into the darkroom at some months of the year these days.
    my real name, imagine that.
