Do parents who believe having a screaming baby is "magical" actually exist? For the record, I have a one-year-old kid at home myself, so I have some experience with this. The beginning is a gory and traumatic event, followed by an extended a poo-and-pee-and-vomit-filled sleepless night. You scold yourself for not applying yourself more when you were younger, because you have a sinking suspicion that you'll never have the chance to do anything "for yourself" ever again.

Many of these funny and cynical parenting eCards are true. The sound of deep breathing indicating sleep, sometime between 7PM and 1AM means that "my" "day" has finally begun. And "friends" without kids, or with a dog, who tell us they "can imagine" what it must be like you regard with such disdain, you're glad you don't have time to see them anymore. But being "too exhausted to argue anymore?" HA! More like gasoline on the fire.

Panda parents — which of these cards hits the nail on the head?

Wanted them in the beginning of our marriage, found out we're both infertile (what are the odds? I saw it as a sign) and down the road I rescued this poor dog who'd been abused and was so skittish they were going to put her down... I think she saw a kindred spirit, as I was dealing with a traumatic experience of my own... we healed each other, and eventually I rescued another dog, and my husband and I feel like we have our family. It's whole and happy, and I realized that I didn't want kids, I wanted to feel complete and now I do. I'm so grateful that we didn't do the medical stuff to force a pregnancy that wasn't meant to be. My family thinks that when I say that I'm overcompensating to hide my no baby sadness, but I'm truly grateful. I'd have had kids for the wrong reasons, and I'm barely able to keep up with the dogs, I can't imagine raising a child.

Well then I was a parent for 7 years, as I "babysat" my little brother 24/7 (waking him, readying us both for the day, dropping off at daycare on my way to junior high, picking him up after and feeding, playing, reading, bathing, etc...eventually putting him to bed and starting all over) until I got married and moved out of state. He called me mommy and sometimes forget who our real mom was. The worst part was that was all when he was young, and now he remembers none of it, and treats me like a distant second cousin.

For my mom that is probably a name of some strange planet (even when there are witnesses present) :)

I told my kids to raise a puppy before thinking they can raise a child. It worked! They both had only 1 kid!

@Laszlo If breastfeeding is that important to you, you do it. I'm not being fatuous either, it is possible for men who want to, you just need the proper hormone injections.

Why even have children if you're going to feel this way?

You mean paying for the nursing home isn't in the contract we made when I supported you 100% for 18 years, plus paid for college, and your wedding as well? Oh....
