The Do-Over Kid

I am very thankful for our do-over kid. I'm pretty sure Layla is fucked up beyond repair, so I'm very grateful that I have another shot at this parenting thing with Evie.

I'm convinced that 90% of first born children are fuck ups. Why? Because their parents had no clue what they were doing. And they either did exactly what their parents did to mess them up, or went the complete opposite route. A lot of people are so obsessed with NOT doing what their parents did, that they do the complete opposite with such aggression that they end up messing up the kid just as bad or worse.

Okay, so that's kid number one.

Kid number two are the good ones. The parents know what they're doing now and have mellowed out. These kids grow up with someone to play with and learn to share. Middle kids live a charmed life.

All subsequent kids are fuck ups again, simply because the parents no longer care.

  1. Interesting. You may be right. But if I say that, does that mean I'm admitting I'm a fuck up? Well, maybe.
