I walked my kids to school today like I do every day because I love my kids, every one of them. I walked past some guy fussing with his kid, another lady chastising her kids, some fellow that looked more asleep than me with FIVE kids. Yes I said five. He probably just got off the night shift. I have three so I understand how much one can love kids, but wow, five children is one seriously full household. I certainly wouldn’t want to have to feed a household with five kids; it kills me to feed three, because that’s the thing. Just because you have three kids doesn’t mean you’re feeding three kids, it usually means you are feeding five or more. Kids bring home other kids like they are stray animals, oh, and then there are the stray animals they bring home. A household with five kids, wow, you’re feeding double digits on a regular basis, then there’s birthday parties and Christmas. Kids can be so unbelievably expensive. Five kids must be extremely expensive to feed, cloth, and provide for. God bless that man and his five kids, if anyone could use some birth control it’s probably him. Were it me I’d have myself fixed, the wife fixed, all the kids fixed, and every pet in the house too, just to be on the safe side.
On my way home I noticed kids’ way too young walking themselves to school. Shorts and shirts, no jackets in the sixty degree chilly morning, kids are simply too young to take care of themselves. They’re kids, they’re not ready for responsibility, that’s something it takes many years to learn, and sadly, most ignored kids are not taught, they’re just left to fend for themselves. It makes me sad. Babies should not be raising babies. Like it or not, some people, and in this day and age that covers a lot of people, cannot afford to have kids, and I don’t just mean financially. You have to be ready to accept the responsibility of a child emotionally as well as financially, or you are doing the child no favor by bringing it into an already tough world. Sadly most people are too selfish to think of these things and make no effort to rectify their situation once the child is born. It’s too easy to neglect or abandon a child. For these people, I suppose, tubal ligation is worth the risk factor.
