so, the subject of me having children came up yesterday…

scary eh?

i’ve put a lot of thought into this over the years, and for a long time my answer was just plain “no”.

mostly due to the quality of the woman that was asking (not interested in being trapped in your white trash hell, sorry)

or the fact that i want any children i have to have it better than i did. (really wouldn’t take much)

or that i’m kinda greedy and i don’t want that kind of responsibility.

… it has since changed to “with the right woman, maybe” … mostly because the “no” came from that part of me that watches out for me. .. you know, the one that says “don’t do that” a lot.

i was looking at how the future would unfold, with children, and the woman who happened to be hassling me about having them, at that particuliar time.

no wonder i said no.

well, i’ve decided that i’m okay with the idea of having kids.

of course, i WILL be naming them google and apache, just on principle. 🙂

    So you’ve chosen to no longer be an evolutionary Cul de Sac, eh? I always wondered.

    *spews drink on monitor* Thanks for the laugh, hon.

    Seriously, I think you’d be a great dad if and when it comes up.

    Apache is an okay name, but if you ever named your kid Google I would have to hit you on general principles.

    Though its not as bad as the kid I knew whose parents named him Curiosity.

    Hmmmm, there must be something in the air cause your like the fifth or so person to discuss their changing views on having children that I’ve “heard” lately.

    And just for the record, I think you would make a really good father (better than a lot of people I know). Of course, that doesn’t mean any of us would be safe from your offspring. *grin*

    Coming home tomorrow, will be at Ursalmas after a two month plus unplanned visit to San Diego

    I’ll try not to make plans for Saturday, but I’ve already been told to wear padding or I should expect to have bruised ribs from all the people lined up to give me bear hugs.

    And I might be kidnapped for dinner, but not sure if that is planned for Saturday or Sunday. But I’ll be back at the sleeping hall on Saturday either way.

    Well if I can make it as a mom, you should have no problem as a dad.

    See you soon.

  6. If hugs are going around send one up to Canada. I can’t come to Ursalmas. Missed you at 12th Night. Was VERY lonely without you guys.

    As for kids…the way you take care of the lost and wayward souls *read: me*, you would be an awesome dad. No, not dad. Daddy.

    I think you’d probably be very successful at fatherhood, simply because you seem to worry about the “right” things…all those things people rarely think about before bringing a new human being into the world.

    As for the names…that’s just cruel to do to a child…go ahead and call them whatever you want but don’t stick them with a wacky name…remind me to tell you of the troubles and travails of friends of mine name Jolli, Merri, and Rich Person.

    Hi Sylverstone! If you choose not to have kids, I applaude your decision to take responsibility for your reproduction!

    You going to be at Ursulmas?

    See you tomorrow…
