Spring, again.

Isn't it funny how the smallest things remind you of something else?

Like today? I was driving home from work and for some reason, I happened to look at the side of the road at the right moment and I saw a dandelion.

A single dandelion.

It reminded me of Spring.

Which reminded me of the day my children were born.



Which reminded me, for some reason, of the fact that I won't have any more babies.


My children will be ten in a few days. I'll never have another baby.


And I can't do anything about it.



Oh, and people like this can?






Seriously. What the damn hell?

Is there no fuckin justice in the world?

Kellie said...

I'm saying something, but it's not what the damn hell. There's a whole lotta other curse words in there.

Wrong. On SO many levels, that is wrong.

Is adoption out of the question for you guys? So many little babies looking for a great Mommy and Daddy, which you two appear to be.

Gerbil said...

I read that. She let the kids eat the crumbs of crack off the plate when she was done cutting it to sell.
What the everlovin' heck.

These kinds of people always pop in my head when I am pondering whether or not I could afford a third child. I am worried about being able to pay for everything that comes with another child. And these kinds of people just keep popping them out with no thought and then don't even care for them. Those poor kids. They are totally fending for themselves.

Whoa. What a sad, sad world... Half the time I really do think there should be mandatory government funded parenting courses. Or a least real jail time for crap like this. Cuz those poor poor kids...

Honey Bunny, have you considered foster care? You would be really good at that.

Emma in Canada said...

Yeah. Some people so should not have children.

Mandy said...

Goof Grief! That's awful. I have been thinking about this, too. I teach in the public school system and see a whole lotta junk. Then, friends struggle to have a baby in a loving and stable home environment. I just don't get it.

So so sad! Stories like this just make your heart cry a river and question things on so many levels!

I am Trish Marie said...

So. Not. Fair.

Edie said...

I battle with this in my head all.the.time... since, I too, am infertile. (or at least have some severe fertility issues that I have yet to overcome) It's just so unfair to me.

It makes no damn sense. None.

Totally unfair sweetie.
