Having the Budweiser with your son leaning on the fencepost talking about life? Yeah, maybe in 20 years or so.
Wow, just wow. You only mention the not so pleasant things. And even some of those really aren't as bad as you make it sound. There are way more good things that outweigh the difficult parts of parenthood. If you truly feel that way about your kids then I doubt you will be having that beer and life discussion with your son in 20 years. He will probably go as far away from you as possible.
