Yesterday my daughter told her friend that she was going to get a baby brother or sister. I’m not having anymore children if I can help it so I know she’s not getting one from me. That leaves only one other person, ex #2. My ears perked up when I heard her tell her friend about her anticipated sibling so I continued to listen. Apparently her dad is getting married and might have a baby.
I have to say right now that my daughter has been begging both of us for a baby sister for the last three years. She is ten years younger than her brother and really wants to be able to give it to someone who can’t give it back. And she wants a live toy to dress up. I have patiently explained that I do not want to have anymore children while simultaneously explaining to my son that I do not want to be a grandmother for at least ten more years. I’m not changing anymore diapers this decade. I want to sleep through the night eventually and I don’t want to see another sippy cup or go in search of a blankie or Nuk before bedtime ever again. I’m done. Well, I’m not really done yet but with those things I am. Anyway, she wants a baby sister badly so I don’t put a whole lot of stock into this idea of hers. I suspect her dad told her something to get her to stop pestering him.
As far as I know her father is not involved with anyone. If he is it is a fairly new relationship and while I don’t doubt that he could get someone knocked up soon in a relationship I don’t see marriage on his horizon anytime soon if ever.
But if it is true it means that I am not the stupidest person on the planet anymore!
Is Daughter playing around with the dark side of the Force again? Be sure you stay away from parthenogenesis.
I thought you’d read my blog. How could you think you were even in the running for that level of stupidity?
Hooray for not being the stupidest person on the planet! Not that you ever were even close.

Congrats on the possibility of no longer being the stupidest person on Earth. I would throw a party.
You are definitely not the stupidest person on the planet. Glad to see that things may be picking up. It has been a rough week for you.
No way are you the stupidest person on earth. Dan Quayle is
GDad, I had to look it up and I still don’t get it. Thanks for walking me through the FTP thing, it was fun!
Man in the Moon, My stupidity is on a completely different level than yours. Yours is to be expected mine is the proverbial banging one’s head against a brick wall and expecting a different outcome. Lets hope we both wise up for 2009!
Your blog makes me smile a lot!
JD, what can I say you are so sweet and full of bs but thanks.
Shonda, a party sounds like a great idea.
Anne, thanks I appreciate it.
Ettarose, I forgot about him, you are right. I feel much better now.
