Some days, this morning is a prime example, I briefly wonder how much money I could get for my 4 year old (at this stage, not a cent). I would never go so far as to post a for-sale ad online, but clearly there are others who have taken the next step in their “get rid of my bundle of joy” fantasy. Check out the recent article on a free baby classified ad that has local police on the case.
Obviously someone had a much rougher morning than I had.
What makes you fantasize about an un-parenting life? Don’t tell me you’ve never considered your life sans children you big fat liar! We all do it.
For me, it’s the whining. Whining drains my parenting well of love and compassion until all I want to do is curl up in a dark corner with my hands over my ears and chant “lalalalalalalala.” It’s not pretty.
