The Best of the Tide Pods Memes

I'm still questioning WHY they'd eat one of the pods.

The little ones think they look like candy, esp. with all the bright, pretty colors.  But I recently heard the older kids are doing it as some sort of "game."  THAT . . . makes NO freakin' sense to me.

Yeah. They've been warning mothers of the dangers to their babies for a few years now. But this new thing with the teens. It just makes NO sense at all.

LOL. How long do you think it would take us to get that going as a total, viral campaign in Reddit?

I am SO glad my child raising days are over.  I can't imagine....
You can keep your kids safe at home... informed... educated... but there is still soooooo much outside influence.

Do you have a difficult time finding others that feel the same?  You don't have to answer.  :)  My daughter feels the same as you.  She would like a serious relationship... get married someday... but the kid thing is always an issue.  She does't want to start off a first conversation with... "I don't want kids.  Do you still want to go out to dinner?"   Silly7
She figures if marriage is meant to be for her... it will happen after her child bearing years.

Dunno, can't say I've tried to find others lol. The one I was with was the same way, but then she was also 16 years older than me, so there's that funny2

I'm happy in my singularity, and I don't really see that changing any time in the near future.

I guess that would take having children or not, off the table!   Silly7

I was asked this week if I had grandkids.  Yup!  I showed pictures of a very handsome boy kitty.  :)  Doing that, cuts off all the "ohhhhh you poor thing, you don't have grandkids yap."
