Really great opinion piece on the “baby Roe” estate case and the establishment of men’s reproductive rights.
Very interested in what you fellow parents think. Do your children have a right to online privacy?
Yesterday I posted a story about the Baby Roe Estate and Ryan Magers and his victory in establishing rights for his aborted baby. Wednesday in a 31 to 6 vote the Kentucky Senate passed SB9, the Heartbeat Bill.
SB9 will now go on to the Kentucky House and if passed and signed into law, it will restrict abortion once a babies heart begins to beat.
I would like to take a moment to talk about one of the most sadistic people alive. Imagine this: once upon a time there was an individual that woke up one morning and said: “shit parenting is too easy, how can I make it harder?”
After several hours of thinking they decided, that keeping the blatant lie of Santa and the Easter Bunny isn’t enough. We need to introduce yet another mystical being to lie to our kids about. However, one day a year isn’t enough. No, instead every time a child loses a tooth this mystical being will come and take the tooth! In fact, kids don’t cost enough so when this tooth being…no, no tooth fairy comes, she will leave a dollar!
Still, this isn’t really that challenging, making sure parents always have a one dollar bill on hand just in case a tooth falls out, sneaking in and leaving the dollar, all too easy. How can I make this more difficult? OH!!! Parents will need to train like ninjas! They will need to leave the tooth under the kid’s pillow! Parents will need to sneak silently into the child’s room after spending the better part of the evening getting them to go to sleep, slowly slide their hand under their child’s head, remove the tooth, and than silently slide the dollar under their child’s pillow. The best part is the kid will be so excited about the tooth fairy coming getting them to fall asleep will be next to impossible anyway!
Basically, this ridiculous practice better suited for Ethan Hunt than an actual parent will require us to be silent stealthy espionage operatives. What pisses me off the most about this individual is they were too fucking lazy to answer the easiest of questions: How does the Tooth Fairy get in? What does the Tooth Fairy do with the teeth?
This is why I have chosen to take a different approach with The Tot Army; we just watch Hellboy II: The Golden Army and they refuse to tell me about the teeth they lose.
I have reported on numerous cases in the court system that would ensure equal custodial rights for fathers. Ryan Magers has gone a step further, Madison County Probate Judge Frank Barger granted rights to an aborted fetus clearing the way for Magers to establish an estate for the baby which is now named “Baby Roe”
Why does this matter? This motion allows Magers to sue the abortion clinic for wrongful death. Magers goal is to gain rights for fathers and unborn babies as well as deter people who profit from abortion.
Shortly after reading the article linked below I located Ryan’s lawyer so I could call and offer my support. I was elated to hear from Mr. Helms that they have received an outcry of support especially from mem who had lost their babies to abortion. These gentlemen have a long battle ahead and I wish them all the luck in the world.
Each week it seems a new state joins the battle for 50/50 assumed custody in the family court system. This, of course, has been a long time coming but after too many years the push for equal rights is gaining ground.
Yes, my fellow parents, that amazing time is upon us when we get to give up an entire hour of sleep.
And I want to say thank you to daylight savings, I don’t think any concept has ever been so dedicated to completely fucking our children’s internal clocks up and destroying parents lives quite like you!
So yes for the next two to three weeks our children will wake up too early, not want to go to bed, and be completely miserable, whiney little shits.
I for one cannot wait until March 10th and I am sure none of you can either!
Last week LTP got bit by a baby at daycare. It is important to note LTP is usually on the giving end of these encounters. However, in this particular instance, she was left with a nice bite mark and bruise. For privacy reasons, we will call this baby Jill.
Randomly throughout the weekend she would walk up to me, point to her bite and say “Jill bite me, no no Jill, bad Jill”
Saturday I hear her saying “I’m gonna get you Jill” followed by a light crash. I walk in her room to find her repeatedly placing her doll on the bed, pushing it off the bed and yelling “Imma get you, Jill”
Needless to say, it is about time to start teaching LTP not to take revenge on her friends.
Found this article useful, just a few of the awkward questions the troops have asked:
“brown people can marry white people?” as I introduced The BG to my boss who is married to a Latino
Followed by “they don’t let gay people get married do they?”
And then “wait you aren’t gay are you?”
There was the time both BG and CPT asked: “what are Nazis?”
Fact is we really have no idea what will come out of our kid’s mouths, all we can do is prepare for anything.
It is important to teach our children the value of money early on. An allowance is one of the ways we can teach kids the importance of saving up to buy the things they want. It is also a great way we can teach them the value of their belongings. They will develop a sense of responsibility not just for taking care of their belongings but also managing finances.
Knowing where and when to start implementing an allowance can be hard. Below are two articles one on teaching kids finances and the second about implementing an allowance.
