Don't get me wrong, I love cooing over babies and pulling funny faces at them. I have also patiently watched over petulant two year olds, nefarious eight year olds and the odd gurgling infant (no diaper change involved though). But what is proving rather annoying is the "joys of motherhood" prattle of new parents that I am subjected to quite frequently nowadays. And when the lecture is delivered by a proud father ("Yeah, tell me all about pushing out your nine pound bundle of joy will ya!!" ) -as I said Gah!!!. People -the last time I checked copulating with the intent of populating was still a highly personal decision and not another case of keeping up with the Joneses.
