I think in this case people will understand. I was leashed as a child to prevent my running off.
All of these incidents that make me not want to have kids...or put it waaay off.
I was the unplanned fifth child (the next youngest being ten when I was born) when my mother was 40. The down sides? I got embarrassed when I was younger because my friends thought she was my grandma. My oldest brother is old enough to be my father. Aaand there was no college fund left for me because it got spent on my *planned* siblings.
I know a family who had two teenage boys and decided to have two more little girls at 44 and 46. I remember my mother saying to me how sad it is that the kids won't get to have their mother around for as long as other kids. how right she was. The mother (at 50) died of a heart attack last year. of course no one can predict that kind of tragedy but seeing her daughters at the funeral, too young to really understand what was going on, was the saddest thing. Anyway at least the girls are lucky to have two adult brothers to look after them.
Oh fun... I remember doing that to my mom when I was about 3. I feel sorry for my mom now of course, but at the time I thought it was a game!
She's only a child so it's understandable. Alot of people like to blame the parent but they tend to forget small children tend to have so many things on thier mind you can't do much but stop them or say no, and that sucks about the people seeing your bottom half.
