Babies are rubbish.

    Babies contribute little or nothing to society save noise and irritation. I think every breeding pair of people should only be allowed one go, thus reducing the number of babies in circulation at any given time, and making coffee shops a pleasant experience once more. Who's with me? We could lobby the governments of the world.

    Well we were all babies at one time...LOL

    However, some people probably shouldn't breed and with the population explosion, we really should have more emphasis on having a smaller family (or advocating it in 3rd world countries).

    oh but they're awfully cute. My sister is having her second on Monday, and it kills me that I won't be there to see it. Her first was absolutely adorable.

    Uh oh......I'm a non-breeder with a kid. Single gay father with a 5yo daughter. She even goes to coffee houses with me but, fortunately, doesn't scream..... She also doesn't talk on the cell phone very loudly to other best gay fag h*g, with wonderful utterances such as 'OH MY GAWD....CAN YOU BELIEVE WHAT THEY DID TO BRITTNY?' I'll take my darling daughter any day of the week. icon_smile.gif

    First Scott DC... What a beautiful picture of you and your niece!

    And Colmdublin... What an obnoxious statement. It's not the baby's problem that they are uncomfortable being stuck next to you in a coffee shop, it's the parents issue. My question is this, do you have any borthers or sisters? If so, let's get rid of them and make you an only child. If you're looking for a single child family lifestyle, move to China.

    OK, that sounded a little harsh... I'm mostly joking.

    I agree that screaming kids is almost as annoying as second-hand smoke. But it's not the kids that are the problem. It's usually the ignorant mother that thinks that it's cute to hear her kid scream while she's talking to her girlfriend about hair extensions and her next Botox treatment.

    I'm a father of 2 kids. When they were babies, I never let them scream. If they acted up in a restaurant, I would get up and leave with them. Nobody wants to or needs to hear other people's kids scream and cry but... Have as many kids as you want, just take care of them.

    The one thing that nobody had mentioned is the fact that babies can be very dangerous when allowed to run (or crawl) in packs.

    I heard that, like, this one time a old lady was gummed to death in a park by a wild pack of vicious toddlers in Alabama.

    Here is an example of the evil babies are capable of; if one baby can inflict this much carnage, imagine what a whole herd could do!!!

    Scott, I love that photo. It's so cute. Colm is just jealous he has none.

    I want a baby, so if you have any spare ones, you know where to find me. I keep asking my sisters, but nothing is happening.

    I mean, who could not want a babyicon_question.gif

    I really, really am not jealous. I know that childhood is a necessary prerequisite to adulthood, but I do wish it could be more contained.

    Colm, I was messing with ya on the jealous thing.

    I love kids, babies, so I'm not with you on this, but as said above, in most cases it's the parents, and not the babies, that are the problem.

    It was my birthday yesterday. Some friends of mine wanted to take me out, but another friend of ours was very sick so we postponed the restaurant reservation until next weekend. In the meantime, one of my friends asked me if it was okay to bring their four-month-old baby along. I smiled and said "Of course!" Meanwhile, all I could think of was "I don't want any stupid babies at my birthday party."

    Oh well. As long as I'm not paying, who am I to argue?

    You may be right. Dundrum is a terrifying place, plagued by women whose nails are too long to get a decent slap on a bold child

    Dundrum is great. I like it. Best car park in the country. Why cant all shopping centers be like that?

    Sorry off topic.

    You would love it in Communist China. Kids are fun - it is their uptight right wing parents I can live without.

    Some of us just don't have the patience. Honestly, my friends and family know not to leave a baby/child in my care unless they don't care about the child's welfare at all.
    Try not to judge. I mean, I do my best to bite my tongue when taking note of a complete lack of parenting.
    But seriously, baby clothes are so cute and tiny.

    Even as a very patient father I can say this... Other peoples kids can be really annoying. Especially when they are out of control and the parents think that it is cute. Out of control babies turn into out of control teenagers.

    I was very lucky with my kids both as babies and as teenagers... Or maybe I was just that good of a parent (pat on the back)
