I Am So Sick Of All Of This!

I am trying to make some kind of sense, but mostly this is just some venting and rambling.

Another day goes by and more news of a parents harming a child. Mother in Missouri-Crying Baby is just the latest to hit the news and social media.  Is this ever going to stop?  Will parents ever stop harming children?  Probably not and that right there is a sad sad fact.

I know it happens everyday and sometimes its not even written about or put in the news.  I know that some things just are the way there are and that it will never change.  What is the deal parents?

I get so pissed at myself for reading all of these stories and trying to wrap my brain around why people harm their own children and at times other children.  I read this stuff and then I am like..WHY?  Did I just do that, cause I am pissed. 

I mean I can remember when T and I lived in Katy, Tx. years ago, Andrea Yates did the unthinkable. I didn't have kids then but I knew that what she did was a sick act and I was grossed out by it.  Then you hear stories all the time. More and More of them. Then I have my own children and it becomes more of a real thing for me because I cant imagine hurting one of my children.

It seems as if that is all you hear about now. Kids being hurt by parents or other adults. 

This Shelby Dasher a 20 year old mother who first said her 13 month old son was missing from his crib and then later admitted to hitting him since he wouldn't stop crying and lay down and go back to sleep.  Man, seriously?  Give your kid to someone who will care for it and someone that knows babies and kids cry.  A young girl having a baby. Happens all the time I know this. Is she mentally ill?  Was it depression?  Was she drunk or under the influence?  Who knows, but for the love of god, give your baby away before you harm it. Shit, leave it at someones door, I mean you will still likely go to jail but at least the baby is still alive.

T and I, we have four kids.  They have all cried. One or two of them have had colic, but never ever did we think about some sick shit like that. We held, we slept with, we walked, we bounced, WE CRIED, I know I cried, we did anything we could do to get our baby to stop crying...............

BY LOVING IT.  WE LOVED OUR KIDS till they stopped crying and when they stopped crying, we looked at each other and laughed until we either fell asleep or the babies started crying again. IT HAPPENS.

When you are a parent..EVERYTHING happens.  I know that I can never write enough about this nonsense that happens. I know it can never be covered enough, I know that I will never be able to look up all the stats and list all the babies and children that are harmed. 

But I do know this...Loving your babies is the best thing you can do for them. Love them, hug them, kiss them and take care of them.

And I think in order to keep my mind fresh and stop being filled with all the disgusting stories that fill the news, I am going to just go back to watching sports all the time. Watch sports and never feel the anger and grief, never hear about the sick things that are being done to kids across the country.

Shit, that wont work either. See people, it is everywhere.

Parent your kids, love your kids, know your kids.

Newborns, Infants, Toddlers, Young Children, Pre-Teens, them till your done.

Kiss the Baby

Thank you for this! I couldn't agree more and I am so sickened that parents could hurt their own child when there are so many people out there that all they want in the world is a child of their own to love and cherish. Seriously, leave your F'n child on someone else's doorstep or get help. Hurting a child is NEVER ever the answer and kids are innocent, they didn't ask to be born to hateful parents. Parenting is hard work and I am so incredibly bitter (probably not the best choice of words but it is true) that shitty people can reproduce when some of us who want kids and can and would provide and love and care for them can't. It's just not fair! okay rant over but this really hits hard for me today. You and T are wonderful parents to the C's, and I hope that Dru and I will be just as good parents someday!

Completely agree! I am totally getting tired of hearing about all these parents (mostly mothers) harming their children. Just in the past 4 days I think I have read like 4-5 articles about a parent who's child has gone missing and they are acting suspicious like they had something to do with it, or they admit to doing it. What the hell is wrong with people!

I completely agree with you.
Nonetheless, when I began reading your post, I thought "here's another post just stating the obvious". I think anyone with a well-functioning brain agrees with it.
But then I understood why you wrote it. I guess it's the same reason why I'm writing a comment too. It's cathartic to talk about it. It's liberator to plainly declare the obvious... We need this cry of sanity when we hear so many news that lead us to think: The world has gone mad!
