"Big Head, Stacy? You Are Not Alone!"

This just in from Erlie via email, a co-worker who recently learned how to knit. She, too, made the big hat project -- but resized the pattern for her little neice.

Let me just say right off the bat (apologies up front to all those moms out there who are kid crazy) -- I'm not a huge fan of kids. Yeah, yeah, I know. That's a terrible thing to admit. But it's the truth. I'm a 40-something married woman living in suburbia with 5 cats and a husband. Kids just never managed to work their way into the picture. Maybe it's that all their plastic furniture would clash with the decor?


But even me, self-admitted-not-kid-friendly-hates-plastic-furniture-snob, can admit -- this is one cute kid.

It's not terrible at all. I feel the exact same way. There are individual children out there I like (my nephew rates pretty high up there), but as a group, ack!

That is a super cute kid, though!

What a cutie-pie she is! Nice hat too! Good job, Erlie!

awwww! Adorable!
And I agree with you - I am not a fan of chilfren either - the kids in my extended family are about all I can handle.

Nothing is wrong with not thinking highly of children. Thankfully you are one of those that realized that kids are not that great before you had some. I decided they were not for me when I was around 5.

Yes, cute as pie!

I'm not a kid person either. Babies scare me because they aren't all the way formed yet. And you know, they annoy my cats. Heh heh. But I like that other people like kids. And I'm better once they get to the talking stage, so we can chitchat and just hang out. But babies? Scary.

Hmph, this is pretty sassy of you:

" . . living in suburbia with 5 cats . . "

Whatever. I guess just because I have no tail, I'm forgotten. Wait till I piss in your bed tonight, then you'll remember me.

I just happen to see your blog - it's awesome! Boy, you are very creative! I'm also not too fond of kids! She's sooo cute though! I love that yellow yarn - where did she get it?

Melissa said...

yeah, I'm not fond of kids either, and have really never had the desire to have one, hence, i am a freak... or so I thought! its good to know that there are other people out there who feel the same!
