License to be a Parent

I really believe that they should issue licenses for people to become parents.

If you think that I'm wrong, or that I'm some kind of freak for thinking that, I'd like to plead my case.

I've been busy and haven't been able to blog much, but I remembered something I wanted to blog about last year.

The end all be all of the worst Christmas presents !ever!

A friend of mine, who has been overweight since birth, received a brand new wardrobe from her size 2 Mother last year.

Very thoughtful, incredibly cool, right?

Wrong. It was all 4 sizes to small. Yes, the whole shabang. I'm talking work clothes, dressy clothes, club clothes, the woman must have spent a small fortune.

And my friend couldn't wear a single stitch of it.

When she asked her Mother why it was all to small, she just replied, "Well maybe NOW you'll lose weight!"

Yes, parents should have to get a license to have children, yes indeed.
