We’re less than a month away from being parents and the thought is still incredibly daunting on yours truly, but at the same time I’m counting down the days. What has amazed me though, is peoples attitudes.
For something that is classed as one of the most joyous occasions in life and the whole miracle of life is a mindfuck once you get thinking about it, people are incredibly negative.
All I get is “Oh no more sleep” “Oh you’ll have plenty of sleepless nights” “Oh my child is 15 now and still has can’t sleep” “Oh child birth is terribly stressful” and so on and so forth. WTF!!!! Why can’t people just have something positive to say as opposed to banging on about THEIR doom and gloom. Some fuckers are so wrapped up in their own lives that they think because their little darling would drive a JCB through the house in the blink of an eye, that every ones little darling would do the same!
That said, it’s not everyone! The bandits I work with seem to be well in touch with the craic, but its the random strangers and older folk bringing the apocalypse that is making me wonder “Why the fuck did you open your legs in the first place!”
