Kids. Who needs them.

I am about to put this out there. I know this might make you think less of me. For some of you this might not even seem possible but I'm going to take a stab at it.

My life was fine before I had kids. There are those whom find life complete when they have kids. They did not fill a void in my life. Unless that void should have been filled high pitched screams and diapers then yes that void has been filled. Neither I nor Kara have ever felt this way. Last night was one of the nights where we wanted a little quiet. Sadly it was also the night the boys wanted to scream and yell and hit things. I told Kara when we are reincarnated and meet and have children let's not buy them anything that isn't plush and soft. And kill the relatives that do. Some people think it is so funny when they give us noise making toys. Well I might think it's funny to set your hair on fire. But I refrain.

This is my favorite line from last night. From Billy.

"I didn't hit him in the face. I hit him in the head."

Needless to say they both went to bed without stories.

I think it's nice to hear someone be honest about parenting. So many moms & dad wax nostalgic about everything their kids do which I'd think would make other parents feel nothing but guilt.

On days like yesterday I want to smack those people.

People who say that God does not have a sense of humor do not have children! I have never really liked kids as they are messy and disorganized and they play with things their bodies excrete...things that should never be touched, much less "played with." They think other things are an archelogical find (and I will leave it at that because I might throw up). I didn't want children; was glad when I was told by my OB/GYN that I could never have children. I should have sued when he said, "surprise, you're pregnant!"

Joseph, I recommend a liberal dose of Louis CK's comments on children... you can find him on youtube. DISCLAIMER: Not for the faint of heart or tender ears.
