Maybe Kids Just Aren't For Me

Now, don't get me wrong...I love my nephew more than I could possibly describe. He is the cutest little bundle of joy and I have had so much fun with him this week in Georgia...but when I feel the need to toss back 3 Vodka Crans at a Red Lobster (yes, classy, I know) just to try and drown out his heathen screams, it makes me think: maybe I'm just not a "Kid's Person." I find myself staring at him as he throws his temper tantrums...and I have this look of...not necessarily disgust, per se, but something short of that. And's not's just...this little human that...screams...and throws things.

People always say: When it's your kids, it's different. Yeah, I don't think so. I'm pretty sure I could still look at my own children with a hint of, "Maybe I made a mistake and is it too soon to send them to boarding school?"

...and then he just looked up at me and gave the biggest smile and a wave. Melted my heart, he did.
Okay, maybe I will have a kid...or four.


  1. There were a few times I could have ripped my hair out and run screaming from the house, but you kids are so worth any minor frustrations we went through (go through). Just remember, the stronger the will as a child...the more success and accomplishments as an adult. After all, look how you turned out :)
