Terry thinks the end of this pregnancy might have driven me just a wee bit insane. I submit that I must have already been insane, since this is my third child and I have no idea how to deal with a newborn and The Girl.


The only problem with pregnancy-induced insanity is that it doesn't go away. I've given birth to 8 kids....think about it. That's enough to give a person "pause".

I gotta get me one of those hats. :)

The way to retain a shred of sanity is to think of one thing: REVENGE. This manifests itself in two ways.

1) Therapy. They're going to need it eventually, and you'll be paying for it. You might as well make it worth the expense. Play with their little minds, and make that fancy-pants psychiatrist earn that $75/hour.

2) Their kids. When the time comes that they have their own, you get to do all those things your parents do to your kids that drives you nuts right now. And,as I understand it, that sudden look of dawning comprehension your child gives when their own two year old successfully sticks spaghetti in an electrical outlet makes all the insanity worth it.
