i talked to my aunt debbie today (she called about computer problems). for those of you who don't know my aunt is pregnant and is due on my birthday. this upset me at first becaues my mom was gonna come see me on my birthday and then she decided not to because my aunt wanted her to be around for the birthing process. so i was very "fuck my family" for a few weeks.
well, i was talking to my aunt today and she's having her labor induced (which i think is fucking retarded, shouldn't the fetus stay in utero until it decides to come out? hasn't that been working fine for millions of years?), and she asked me if i minded if she was induced on my birthday because she wants to be induced on a friday (so she misses no work/school) and wanted to ask me because it's my "special day".
i was.... stunned. what kind of question is that to ask someone? i finally said, "i dunno? what'ever's most convenient i guess?" and she started talking about doign it the weekend before so i could see the baby when i'm down there.
when the fuck is my family going to learn that i don't like babies? i don't think they're cute. i, in general, don't care. it's a fluke that i love my cousin at all, he's just now getting to the age where i can tolerate kids, i have no idea how he slipped past my defenses for so long, but i rather love the little bastard now.
i know i won't have that connection with this new sprog. i don't see why she cares.
but, i guess it's cool that she doesn't wanna ruin my birthday?
i'm actually not much planning on having one. i'd rather not take the chance of being stuck being responsible for something that i might not love.
....and i've watched too many birthing videos. i never want my nono spot to look like it's vomiting hairy lasagna. some might call it the mircale of life, i call it... disturbing.
I've never really been a big fan of babies, myself. I, personally, don't think they start becoming cute until they're at least 6 months old. Until then (and especially at birth), they all look the same.
Every time I see birthing videos, I cringe when the mothers/family say "Oh, it's so cute!".
I also don't understand why being induced is the norm now...
I generally dispise other people's kids, but at least with my own I can tell them what to do and hopefully mold them into a kid I wouldn't be constantly annoyed by.
i prefer children 10 years +. they don't so much have the high pitched voices of doom anymore and have some sort of personality by then.
how in the bloody fuck could anyone think a birthing video is cute???!?
i'm always happy to run across parents that actually parent. i think that's a huge problem right now, people just letting children run rampant and try to play it off as "they're just children". i'm pretty sure that's one of the main reasons i hate kids.
Induction when the baby is fully healthy is a totally ridiculous process...But then again, so is getting c-sections when you don't need one.
So many women today are so wrapped up in themselves, they have 'planned' births and get so drugged up they don't even feel it or have to push.
The whole idea just sickens me (having babies too)
