The little one has recently been in the habit of crying about anything, or nothing in particular. This action has reaffirmed to me that crying kids are indeed annoying. Is it wrong of me to say this about my own child? No. If I, or my wife, didn't think it was annoying perhaps it would just lull us back to sleep while the kid lies awake starving. Or maybe the little one slams her finger in a drawer, and the yelp she makes seems 'cute' and 'adorable.'
People close to me claim that I rarely become angry. I can say without a doubt that this observation is untrue. There are plenty of things that set me off, and for reasons unknown to me, children have a way of finding those things quickly. One thing that gets me going is whining and crying and tugging on my leg (which will henceforth be referred to as Wac-A-Toml). Fortunately my wife has finally stopped doing this when I crush her dreams of a new wardrobe. Unfortunately, the three year old is just getting started.
