just procrastinating

Sunday, June 25, 2006

I'm amazed the human race has held up and continued to thrive. A week of looking after a newborn, with maybe, say 15% of the responsibility, and I'm ready to say that's enough reproducing. How do people do it? Twins? Triplets? Crikey. Just the thought makes my palms sweat. There is nothing more stressful and overwhelming that trying to console a breathlessly crying infant. Well, of course there are, but it's still hard, especially at 3AM. But who knows? Everyday it seems easier.

Someone told me I'd look back on these first few weeks fondly, with that very human kind of misrecollection and I thought, yeah, you know, I'm exactly that kind of person.
