This post should serve as a warning to any prospective parents: ADVANCE WITH CAUTION. I'm not going to tell anyone not to have kids, because some people seem to enjoy theirs. I actually like mine 98.9% of the time, although lately I think she may be broken. I just want to give those blissful parents-to-be the bit of reality that usually gets obscured by those who want to indoctrinate others into the parental cult.
Even when the Queen and I started to even consider the idea that perhaps we maybe, perhaps wanted to raise a child, the Parent Mafia descended upon us. "You just HAVE to have kids!" these child Amway sales people would yell. "You would be SO good at being parents! Can you be my parents? Adopt me!"
