Angry again

And this quote pretty much sums it up:

"Having children makes you no more a parent than having a piano makes you a pianist."

If you are blessed with children, please hug them today.

Tell them they are precious and that you love them no matter what. Tell them they are good and wanted and loved. Be selfless with them.

Because some kids don't ever get that. In fact, some kids get quite the opposite.

And there's nothing more sad than that.
I am listening to: Office sounds
I am reading: Work e-mail
And I am: Sad

Hey Hedy...What made you write this today? Something set you off!

I know too many children with unbelievably crappy, selfish, ignorant parents. Of course one would be too many. And before any of you spout off about "well you don't have kids, Hedy, you don't know how are hard it is." I say bullshit. There's no reason to be mean to a child. There's no reason to threaten a child. There's no reason to make a child feel like they are unloved or unwanted. You don't have to be a parent to understand that.

Now don't you go pickin' on Alec Baldwin like that!

It's sad, but it happens all too much. Right up there with mean is disinterested. There was what appeared to be a kid about 3 years old riding his little bike down a reasonably busy side street - IN THE STREET! MsMoo had a few words with a neighbor that could identify him, and the response was, "He's 5." Well, doesn't THAT make it OK?

I guess if they survive, they'll be a pretty hearty, self-sufficient generation.
