I Am Never Having Children
One day, I may retract that statement. But for now . . . Seriously, how do parents do it? How do they get through months of sleep deprivation? How do they get up every hour to feed, clean, or soothe a bady? How do they deal with the constant crying and then chattering and then whining of their children?
Because after one week with this puppy, I feel like I'm one of the living dead. I have become incapable of functioning in a normal, human way. I can't even have a coherent conversation.
And it's not that this puppy is particularly challenging. He's a normal puppy---needs to pee a lot, wants attention, barks for both.
I'm just not cut out for this mother thing.
