The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / Re: The biggest, douchiest, first world problem you will ever read.« on: May 01, 2013, 03:01:54 am »
I just think they're spoiled sacks of shit because they went to great lengths and expense to have more children than the one they already have, and now they're crying because they didn't get the girl they wanted, they got twin boys and it cost the $30k and boohooo they live in a one-bedroom apartment (maybe shoulda thought of that before you decided to spend $30k on in vitro, eh douches?).
I also got a kick out of the part where they basically say their first born is a little shithead too.
That's what hit me most about this. They clearly don't have fond memories of parenting their existing child, so why the desire for more to begin with? Just to provide apparently annoying (but now wonderful?) offspring #1 with a sibling?
Its all sacrifice, burden and baww for them, it was all a gift gone awry for their 1st born; its all their 1st born's fault, he made them do it, they had no responsability or say in the matter.
It seriously sounds like they did it for their son, because "they had siblings." Hell, my mom had my brother so I could have a sibling also, but he was WANTED. He was planned for and loved. These parents already stated they don't love these unborn twins. They make parenting sound like a burden, a terrible fucking burden, and are using other people's opinions of it BEING a burden to back up their claims.
My dad told me he was really worried right before I was born that he wouldn't be able to love me because he loved my brother so much and just didn't know how he could possibly have room for any more love. Of course the fact that he worried about it at all separates him out from these parents, so there's that.
I can only imagine that these two will resent the twins when they inevitably act as newborn babies do. Then they'll resent the older brother for "making" them have more kids. Hope the extended families have therapists on call.
