Recently, Chelsea Handler, comedian, actress, writer, producer, and current stand-in for The Daily Show released a short comedy video about the joys and perks of being childless. As with most comedy, the laughs were in the exaggerated content but it also touched on truths.

“It’s amazing what you can do when you have this much free time,” Handler concludes in the view, before adding, “And that’s a day in the life of a childless woman.”
