Annoucements

Well, since it's customary to actually tell people this kind of stuff, I guess this is as good a place as any to do so. Despite my best laid plans to avoid such an event, it seems that I now have a bun in the oven. No, it's not planned. I'm not a "kid" planner cause I'm entirely too consumed with what could go wrong with said kid. Even though lengthy discussions were had in regards to Joshua (well before he was ever a zygote), he still wasn't planned. Alas, this one is the same (only without the lengthy discussion part). I'm pulling for a girl this time, so that I might have one of each. This is completely contradictory to my thoughts last go round as I'm generally petrified of the teenage girl, and have zero desire to actually raise one. Still, this being said, I'd like to have one of each. If she is in fact a she, and goes all batty on me at 15 I'll just have to take her out of this world (which is my right according to Bill Cosby). The challenges that have been posed to me in raising a boy to this point are things I'd rather not repeat. I want someone who will virtually self potty train (which most folks with girls will tell you is the case when compared to boys). I'll not get in to details here, but the entire potty training ordeal (all 2+ years of it) is something I want to be quick and easy this go round. Additional issues we had to deal with were often dismissed as "oh, that's just how boys are." Even though repeatedly we tried to get help, none was ever offered until he finally went to school and the experts there said "um, your kid has xyz issue." Well no shit - I'd been trying to tell people that for 2 years, but nobody would listen because "he's a boy." Anyway, this isn't supposed to be a bitch fest about the things that suck about raising boys, but rather my reasoning for now wanting to have a girl. Anywho, whatever will be, will be, and I'll be sure to post about the outcome of said kid once we find out in the next month or so what we'll be having. I'm now soliciting sponsors to cover the cost of child care, diapers, formula, and all the gadgets that go along with babies. Anyone offering up that sort of cash should be referred to me via email or phone :)
