We are about to have our first child. Tanya is due in 3-4 weeks. Our lives will forever be changed and we’re super excited about it. If it means I’m not going to sleep for the next 6 months, I’m excited for it. If it means my kid is going to spray shit all up her back side, on the wall and all over me, I’m excited for it. We’ve been trying to have kids for 5 years, so we just feel so damn lucky that we’re able to have one.
That’s why I’m sick and tired of hearing…
… so many people (mainly men) say to me baloney like:
- “I feel sorry for you…”
- “Your life is over now…”
- “Guess I’ll never see you again…”
- “Another one bites the dust…”
- “That’s too bad…”
- “Hold on to what hair you have left…”
and other f’d up nonsense. Are you kidding me people? I am so excited it’s beyond words, yet these dough heads have the nerve to say this ridiculous crap. The worst part is pretty much every damn one of them HAS KIDS!!!!!
I feel sorry for the kids of these parents
I wonder how many times these parents say this while their kids are in the room, in their arms, within listening distance. What do you think your kid is going to feel when you say this garbage and they can hear it? Regardless of their age, if they can comprehend words, then the impact is being made.
Some say they’re joking
Well I think that’s a load of crap. I think they’re actually shallow. There’s always some truth in a joke. It’s too bad, because I think too many people take getting pregnant and having kids for granted. Well I know I sure don’t and I know Tanya sure doesn’t. We are so stoked to be able to have a daughter coming in to this world you wouldn’t believe it, so to the asshats out there who want to tell me this other baloney, please keep it to yourself!
So how do I end this with a positive?
It’s quite simple. I’m just gonna love the hell out of our new daughter and make sure she knows how lucky we feel every day to have her in our lives. I’ll leave the asshats to chat amongst themselves, while Tanya and I sore above the clouds because we just are that grateful and feel like we’re on cloud nine.
