I like kids and find toddlers charming...when they're not screaming their heads off. Since mine are 18 mos apart, there was a time I did have two screaming kids under the age of 3 at the same time and there were days I wanted to scream and cry. Okay so sometimes I did cry.
Can't imagine having 8 kids the same age...oy.
But the "Guess some people don't like kids?" No, honey, most people don't like being in a small confined place with that many unruly kids, especially when you figure in that some people are made anxious enough by flying, and kids screaming and crying wouldn't help.
