The Learning-how-to-be-bitter Channel

I was watching A Baby Story (because apparently when I’m depressed I’m a sucker for punishment) and the family was having their second child - a mere TEN MONTHS after the first. I guess they got pregnant the first time they had sex after baby #1. (They called them Irish Twins - isn't that cute? No.) All together there are something like 15 cousins under the age of 10 in their family (from maybe four sets of parents). Aside from insane jealousy (seriously, they got pregnant again when baby # 1 was 6 weeks old? C’mon, share the wealth, people...) I can’t help but wonder if there’s another sister-in-law in the family someplace that doesn’t have any kids. I can’t even imagine being an infertile in the midst of such an excessive display of fertility. That must suck. I guess in comparison my life is just peachy.


  1. I can't even fast forward past that channel so I took it off of my list of favorite channels. I get very depressed watching that show - VERY.

    I hope you are well.

    Take care.

  2. I, too, am a glutton for punishment. A Baby Story must have some kind of subliminal messaging that makes me watch it.
