Shiny Happy People (it's my party and I'll gag if I want to)

Mulderfans happy scripted family comment on Joans blog  made me think of this card my sister made for our mother when we were kids. I know for a fact that about the time my sister drew this my mother was done with, in the middle of, or about to have a raging fit, and make all in the house sorry we were ever born. How do I know this? Because I just summed up every single day she  spent on this earth.
I am the Dogie goo goo ga joob.

Now that I think about it that hand made card is about the only thing my mother didn't leave to my first wife. That rumpled piece of construction paper and crayon is what we have to show for 58 years of torture with that old hagged out battleaxe

So sad. Hey I did the "I love you" cards too. It makes me feel so sad for your sister. One thinks about these types who trample on little kid's desire to love as being the worse human beings on earth. Yes "shiny happy people" all the fake stuff was always promoted. We were supposed to be appear happy and like in loving families where the appearances always counted for everything.

Maternal instinct is something these creatures never had. When I was born, mother knew she had a steady supply for I was sensitive. Sensitive children draw those hearts, I really feel for your sister. Give her a big hug for me please.

They act like a sulking teenager walking around whining and telling the parent I didn't ask to be born. But what they should be saying is WAH! I gave birth to you and now I hate you for wrecking my life. WEll honey I didn't ask to be born you went out and got pregnant. I guess you could call my father's death a really late term abortion.

Yeah they could have used birth control, it was available at the time I was born. I don't get people who have kids and hate them and are pissed off at the mess and the rest, like they are too dumb to get the gist of what it is about? It's like they want pets or they have children because they are "supposed to" and don't think of the work involved. I know birth control accidents happen like condoms breaking, but most of the ones complaining most about the kids had more then 2, and 3+ plus of them and they whine "These miserable kids"....but keep popping them out. At least the child-free movement may spare some rich narcs from having kids who have money and can take cruises instead of paying for day care bills.

That pet analogy is perfect. Like a kid promising they'll walk the dog and scoop the cat boxes until they get the pet then they never touch it again. We finally just had to say no. At one time we had five cats and neither daughter ever one time cleaned the cat box. NOT. ONE. SINGLE. TIME. Now they want dogs. And dogs just chew the house to shambles.

A few years back my father sheepishly gave me back all the cards I made him and my mother. My mom wanted to just toss them out. He gave me back my baby picture album at the same time.

I found an old baby album where you are supposed to write about baby's first this and baby's first that and maybe put sprigs of hair taped to a page and it was totally empty. Not one word had been written inside. I found that card my sister made in the last box of photo's I had from those years. It was completely happenstance. Every other thing ended up with my ex wife who presumably threw them away. That would be her last act of dumping on us. She wouldn't be able to know ho was in the old pictures because she had never met most of those folks so they meant nothing to her.

I hate to go here but really the way I was thinking about my mother and father last night when I went to bed was that we were more like toilet paper to a person taking a dump in the woods. They needed us when they needed us. Little things like perjuring our selves in a murder trial. And after they finished their business we were like the paper they cleaned themselves with. And it's like some one asking them if they wanted the toilet paper back and they get a look like are you crazy? It's got shit all over it. Why would I want that?
