{brutally} honest...

I have been told before (by a real estate agent) that I was brutally honest, and she said, "yes, you are brutal, that is right."
Well, here I go again.
If you have children, and they are not mine--I DO NOT WANT TO KEEP THEM.
I know this sounds mean.
BUT I have three already, and entertaining yours--NOT INTERESTED.
Anyone remember the little girl who has a {summer} river house beside Andy's mama and
Daddy?  Well, her mother has never gotten in the river with her, nor have I ever
seen her mother play with her....so guess what little sweet pea does...
SHE COMES OVER TO PLAY WITH MY CHILDREN AND I BABYSIT HER!!!
I am not sure if anyone has noticed, but the children who are constantly pawned off
on other people are also the ones who blurt out constantly,
"LOok at MEEEEE!!!"  "Watch this Ms. Susan"  "now, WATCH WATCH watch me do it AGAIN!!"
Yep.  Now we all know that all children do this...they all want to be looked at and watched.
THAT IS WHY I KEEP MY ASS OUT IN THE RIVER AND WATCH MINE.
Get it?
Now there are a couple of exceptions, cousins being one of them.
You know when all of the family is there together...I do not mind watching all the
kids for a while..no problem...aunts and uncles can do a little watchy watchy.
Also, when someone has a teeny baby and they are about to go insane...
I will watch one of their offspring.
Playdates are beginning to come up, and that is actually fun...
you know, the children entertain one another..
That can be fun-
IF YOUR CHILD KNOWS HOW TO BEHAVE AND NOT GET INTO MISCHIEF!!
I just got a phone call from a little girl who used to live next door--over a year ago.
She told me her new phone number, and that she wants to come and play at my house...
Maybe there is a teensy teensy bit of me that feels flattered...
Oh...she misses us..
But the bigger part of me says...
SHE IS DRIVING HER {CRAZY} MOTHER EVEN CRAZIER...AND HER MOTHER WANTS
HER TO COME TO MY HOUSE FOR THE DAY(S).
Well, nothing doing, sister, you had her--YOU KEEP HER!!
I had the play group that I want, and I don't want to watch your children while you
laze around your house all day and chain smoke and watch trashy t.v..
Do I feel sorry for the little girl...maybe a teensy part of me..but not
sorry enough to put up with her all day!!

I know this is (brutal) --but it's how I feel. :).

I'm sorry that I giggled at your brutality. I {actually} said "Amen." Yep - I do remember that girl at the river! That sh!t annoys me, too. And it happens way too often. You will notice that when you have plenty of kids, people think you don't mind more...

I guess your not a big fan of children, sometimes I feel the same way too.
