I can't name a single reason why people want to children. Children annoy me in general. If I did have children, they would hate me. But it's worse because I'm an introvert. I can't imagine having to spend all day at a job where I have to interact with people just to come home and have children to deal with. People make me feel physically tired. After a day of interacting with people, I will want to relax with a favorite tv show and dark chocolate. Not clean up a dirty house for the third time that day. My younger brother is a complete brat so I hope all your children are better. I feel really bad for the parents who have had a bad day at work, just to go home and have to clean up their children's messes. That's not even the worst part. I've heard young kids say hurtful things to their parents. How do you handle it? I asked my childfree by choice group and the best answer I got was that they take it a little bit at a time.

Once kids are about 8 or 9, I think they can be really fun, depending on your interests. They almost always have enough energy to do stuff and most things are new to them, so they are more open to trying stuff.
I enjoy playing board games with them, sports, and doing crafts sometimes. It depends on the person, if you have good behavior management skills to get them to cooperate more.
It can be difficult at first when it is someone else's kid, because they aren't used to how you like things done, but if you had your own, you could teach them what is important to you. Putting in more effort at first makes it a lot easier in the long run, and then it becomes enjoyable.
Plus it can be fun to see how excited they get over stuff.1

You are aware that introverts have kids too, lol. I am an introvert, and though I don't have kids, I've spent a fair portion of my life working around them. I don't consider them annoying. Just like adults, they have their moments where they are sweet and loving AND quiet, and then they can be the total opposites. Not too many adults or kids including yourself are just one note where they only ever show one side of themselves 100% of the time. I just spend the holidays with my 2 year old nephew and he had so many different moods throughout the day from fantastic to tantrum. You deal with them like you also learn to deal with other adults and their moods. You also know kids won't be kids forever. You don't find many 8+ year olds having full on tantrums like 2 year olds. They grow and change and you grow and change with them.1
