The Top 10 Reasons to Have a Baby

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 9:48 AM
(1) You are getting too much sleep. You’ve really gotten into a bad habit of sleeping 7-8 hours consistently each night. You like a challenge and feel that life would be much more challenging on about 6 hours of sleep that’s been interrupted 2-3 times each night.

(2) You have too much free time. You’re days are spent listlessly and frivolously and need something to fill your hours with. If you have a baby you’ll be taking many more pictures. By the time you work on in your scrapbook and read all of the parenting books and magazines, surely you won’t be quite so bored with life.

(3) You have too much money. Your money is just piling up in a 401K or being thrown away on vacations and clothes that you really don’t need. You feel that your money would be better spent on diapers, clothes for someone else, and a college fund.

(4) You’re spending too much time with your friends. You get to hang out with your friends once, twice, and sometimes even three times a week. You are looking for a legitimate excuse to stay home.

(5) You’re getting tired of eating your meals uninterrupted and with two hands. It would be much more exciting to get to nurse, bottle-feed, or spoon-feed a child while trying to eat yourself.

(6) You only get to wear one outfit a day. Babies get all sorts of things on your clothes, and that will be a great excuse to change clothes two or three times a day.

(7) You take too long of a shower. There’s nothing like a screaming baby, sound of a crash, or worse yet – sudden silence to motivate you to conserve water.

(8) You want to branch out your tv watching. You long to find out who Dora, Calliou, Thomas, and Blue are.

(9) Your house is too neat and clean. You feel the need to add an assortment of baby items (swing, bassinet, bouncy seat, etc), toys, and books to your interior design. Also, you’d like the dust to pile up a little more so that you can really notice when you clean.

(10) You don’t get enough advice from people in your life. You need help to make daily decisions from the people closest to you (your mother, mother-in-law, sister, friend, stranger at the grocery store.) You’ll begin to wonder how you ever made it through on your own!

Yep You Nail them all.
The eyes in the back of your head weren't getting enough of a workout and you feel board with your day job and want to try juggling with one hand.

You have got to submit that somewhere. That's fantastic! Moms (and dads) could relate.

I burst out laughing at #1, and never stopped laughing all the way through. This is great!
