Just a minute ago I was carrying my sister's three-month-old baby around on my shoulders, entertaining him to the best of my ability.

He repaid my kindness by throwing up on my head, and the couch I was standing beside.


One more strike against having kids of my own.

Actually, he is a really good kid, never cries, even in the middle of the night, and is growing incredibly fast. He is already wearing 12 month old clothing, even though he is only 3 mos. Oh well, all part of raising a kid, I suppose.

Yep, then you get to clean up the couch.

Oh yes and those diapers get pretty nasty too.

Unless a significant portion of your life is spent serving others for no other reason than it is the right thing to do, your life is pretty much meaningless. Tkaing care of babies is one of the noblest forms of service. Teaching them to be good people is right up there. If you aren't on board for all that child rearing entails, please don't get anyone pregnant.

Seriously though, I don't really want to have kids. If I do, I will of course take care of them, and give them everything they need, and most of what they want.

Yes, by the way, I cleaned up the mess myself.

If you say so, I prefer being a uncle and having a puppy.
Babies too much work and dogs are cheaper to take care of.

You're bouncing a 3 month old around and you wonder why he pukes?

Wait till you play "airplane" with them -- flying them over you while you lay on the floor.

Then they puke on your face.

And he's going off to college in just one more year. I miss the little guy.

Of course I'm proud of the young man he's become

Wow, totally unexpected post - you need to put (SARCASM) in the title to warn folks! Kidding of course - I am completely in love with mine and worship his vomit...you'll see when you have kids...

A member of our church always brings his grandson (its mother rarely attends) and that poor kid gets fought over by everyone there (including me).

He-he-he, I've got two of them, girls 4months old, and a lab that thinks his job is to clean up spit up no matter where it is. I'm getting a 45 day vacation from diaper duty while I'm deployed, maybe my wife will be used to handling it all by the time I get back! yeah right!

And yes, I know I have a long 20 years ahead of me! But I do love those little critters!

I used to be scared to death of infants... i thought I might hurt them.

Then my friend had a baby and now I'm "Uncle BUCC_Guy". The kid is really fun... I've been there since the delivery. I love how she waves when Uncle BUCC is leaving...


I really can't wait till I have my own. As long as I can afford to give them what they need, i dont see a problem. Diapers don't even scare me.... well... kinda.

Children are God's gift to mankind and proof He still loves us. You are entrusted by Him with his most precious gift. Cherish the children. Protect the children, with your life if necessary.

That spit up is nothing, grow up. Do your job - clean him off, clean off the couch. Enjoy the few precious moments you have with them as babies.

If you cannot do these things selflessly, you are still too much of a child to be entrusted with your own children.

I loved it when all my kids were babies.
Then they hit the teens.
Well, the youngest isn't a teen yet but she's learned from the rest of them.

When my son was that age, we used to shake him up and then hand him to people we didn't like!
