I see my last post has caused some upheaval. It's also unfortunately caused some misunderstanding. I should have been more explicit in my writing, because I see many of you have concluded that I put Charlie down howling and simply walk away. This is not the case. I apologize for being unclear. I don't mind disagreement, and I expect differences of opinion since anyone's approach to raising a child is necessarily personal, deeply felt, and tailored to the unique needs of her family, but I would prefer that you take issue with what I actually do rather than what I inadvertently left you to assume by my lack of clarity. Therefore I would like to issue a correction.
should have read:
Furthermore, the lone embryo that became an ectopic pregnancy was not "a little bastard" that should have been "squashed under my thumb in its dish." It was a precious angel of radiant light that breathed among us for but a moment, teaching us priceless lessons about laughter, life, and love.
The caption to the cartoon on p. 56 should have read, "I say it's giant rubbery clots of shedding endometrium, and I say the hell with it."
Also, I see nothing worth remarking in the fact that Michelle Duggar is pregnant again.
Finally, on the advice of my attorneys, I must now assert that Lunchables® are not, in fact, sliced dead people. They are instead the first pre-packaged, ready-to-eat lunch offering meat, cheese, and crackers that allow kids to MAKE FUN OF LUNCH® by providing them with food that they love in a manner that allows them to build and eat any way they want, with 44 different flavor combinations and 8 varieties to provide a nearly infinite array of salt-crusted, preservative-dripping flavor sensations. Visit Lunchables®.com to learn more, and to create your own radical combinations. (Why Oscar Mayer® would want to suggest that their product has anything to do with a bubbling beaker of urine, monkeys, rats, and eyeballs, I'm sure I don't know but I just say what the lawyers tell me to say, and that's my final word on the subject.)
I hope this clears up any misunderstandings.
