I'm SO never having kids.

I'm with you there. I say leave that to the women.

...

You've left me speechless. SO not what I meant. ;) I'm most especially not having kids in the 'actually giving birth' sense.

Trust me, I understand. Dani almost broke my hand when she was going into labor. And not the fragile little flesh-and-blood one.

But aside from that, babies take too much time. I for one would never be able to get anything productive done.

I believe the phrase is, "Word."

Not to mention the whole what's physically involved. And if my mutation would even let me carry one. And... okay, I've creeped myself out, I'm going to go solve complex equations for a bit.

Oh, nonsense.

If babies meant that one couldn't get anything productive done, how would Moira and I manage?

Because your wife is genius enough for the both of you?

And yet, I'm not home watching the munchkin all the time while she does her Genius Things. In fact, I think I'm working technically three jobs myself. The only thing that stops a person from successfully juggling family and work is deciding that they don't want to.

Okay, I admit it. I'm a total wuss, and have no desire to know that kind of pain.

Yeah, that too. I don't mind older kids...maybe I'll just adopt, or something.

think of it as something to work on in case someone with abnormal muscles decides to hold your hand.

and it HURT.

I heard that my daughter traumatized you and Terry last night. Quite an accomplishment for a six month old...

*bewildered* What happened?

From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
Yeah, what Rahne said. Rachel's a little sweetheart.

She decided to take a flight. I ran into the banister.

From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
Damn, I wish I'd seen that. Next time slide down the banister.

From: [identity profile] x-siryn.livejournal.com
The problem was that she went over it.

Date: 2006-02-06 10:41 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
Yeah, but if you slide down, and look like you're having fun, she might decide to follow you, and not buzz around so much.

She'd already bounced off the carpet at the bottom.

Mr. Summers stopped her.

Next time slide down, I'm telling you. It's faster.

Date: 2006-02-06 10:54 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-siryn.livejournal.com
I've lived here a long time. I know how fast it is. That wasn't the problem.

Date: 2006-02-06 10:58 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
So what was the problem? I mean, from what you've been saying it sounds like she was flitting around faster than you could keep up.

She went over the railing and hit the ground floor from the first floor! That's when I ran into the railing.

Technically, hitting the ground floor from the first floor is like going from 0 to 0. They're the same thing.

She was doing her Flying Baby Hamster Bubble trick at the time, right?

Date: 2006-02-06 11:13 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-siryn.livejournal.com
I'm still alive, aren't I?

Date: 2006-02-06 11:19 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
So I'm still not seeing the problem. I mean, Nathan and Doc MacT wouldn't let her zip around loose like that if the hamster bubble wasn't pretty darn safe.

I give up. I have to go to my harp lesson now.

I agree wholeheartedly. Babies are small, wet, squirmy and smelly, and spew disgusting substances from both ends.

I much prefer children who are mobile and can express their wants and needs without the screaming.

Rachel is mobile and can express her wants and needs without screaming, is where that whole thing breaks down, though. :)

Rachel is a little too mobile for some people, apparently.

But much fun.
