Daylen Update; Out of Surgery
Daylen is out of surgery and is presently in recovery. He is doing very well and doctor’s expect he will be going home either late tonight or tomorrow. His recovery will take a little time, but the doctors say babies are much more resilient that we adults think. Evelyn is extremely grateful for everyone’s thoughts and prayers.
I sent a picture of my soul wifey, Marcia R. a few moments ago. The truth is I’m always amazed by how she makes me feel as a friend. She appears to know what to say, how to say it and when to say it. Recently we joked about having children (naturally of course) and watching in wonder at how they turn out – truth is, there’s no one I can think I’d like to share genes with – or jeans (the girl’s got taste). Whether times are good, bad or just blah, she’s always someone I want to share it with. How’s that for “UGH” inspiring?!
Today a caller that wished to remain Anonymous asked me: Why do you think some people don’t want children? Is it normal to not feel the NEED to reproduce?
Many of you will argue this point until you’re blue in the face, but it’s best to take folks at their word. If anyone tells you that they don’t want children, take them seriously. This means that if you’re a woman or man engaging in a relationship with someone that has said they don’t wish to have children and you do want a family, it’s best to weigh which of the two is most important to you (the mate or the mating) and make adjustments. People thrust or forced into parenthood can adjust and be adequate parents, but they will never show the enthusiasm in parenting that someone who has always wanted children displays. Some folks may tell you that the NEED to reproduce is natural, but the truth is, the need to mate is more natural than the need to reproduce. If you’re questioning whether you’d make a good parent, start with a pet. If you can’t handle the responsibility of a puppy, you can only imagine what a 10 pound screaming needy infant will do to you.
Keep passin’ the open windows…
