    The basic concept of family is fraught with contradictions even under optimal conditions. Theres a reason for why so many families basically disintegrate once the kids are old enough to leave.

    Kids do a great job of reminding us how first-world most of our problems are. As the father of a 10-year-old girl, I can verify this firsthand. Daily concerns involve VR headsets, fidget spinners and smart devices.

    Found myself juts now getting preemptively angry over asking the nieces to clean the kitchen... So.. yeah, went to doing it myself in a fit of rage (rather unrational,I don't know why I got so angry, exactly), because if I had to listen to one more "Why do / have to do it?!" I was going to end up loosing it.

    It's really kinda bothering me how in the close up panels, Gabe is on the right side of the bench and Tycho is on the left, but in the far away scene they've swapped places....

    Edit: Oh wait nevermind, I was flipping the perspective of the bench in my head. I see it correctly now.

    I think this is supposed to be more ominous

    Tycho's horrible child raising is more poetic.

    Tycho's kids are going to be so well spoken when they grow up.

    A few months ago mine learned the game of throwing things out of the shopping cart, crying until I pick them up, and then throwing them again. After a few trips of this my wife and I agree to sacrifice a sippy cup and when he starts we just keep walking. "Hey, buddy, what's wrong? Thirsty? Well keep throwing your sippy and let me know how that works out for you."

    The first time he put two words together and it was, "Daddy mean."

    Most vasectomies are covered by health insurance. Most of the time you pay nothing.

    Exact conversation with my wife not 5 minutes ago:

    "I know we said we were going to stop at two, and I know Tony's coming a lot sooner after Sam than we ever wanted them, but part of me always wanted a daughter."
    "Yeah, but my appointment's scheduled, I can't just cancel it."

    When you get the vasectomy, the smell really is the weirdest part. When I got mine, the doctor was talking about his brother's Korean BBQ place. Dead serious, we were discussing korean bbq while I could smell my vas deferens cooking under a soldering iron.

    What is this I don't even.

    Actually, very irritatingly, in the US its not always. We used our HSA to pay for my spouse's but it was still nearly $900 for the cash price and the insurance would have been billed around $1,300. My IUD would have been $0 out of pocket (and if I'd had my tubes tied it would have been about the same), but I had done the first 12 years together including 3 pregnancies and 2 live births, so it was his turn. It really grinds my gears that under the ACA a lot of the woman centered birth control methods are covered at $0 co-pay but the only one for men isn't even counted towards his deductible.... ugh.

    This is about my upcoming experience as well. My wife and I both signed consent forms with the idea being that if she has a cesarian, the ligation can be done at the same time with little additional risk and zero additional cost, but if not then I cash out some vacation time and go get the snip-snip.

    Vasectomies always seemed really bizarre to me, unless you have constant hookups, and I cant imagine the latter happening very often outside 1990's sitcoms or 1970's porno's. The 80s were weird that way, everyone had a ton of sweaters but no sex.

  • HevachHevach Registered User regular
    Married men are the usual recipients, after they have enough/too many kids, who don't want more but want to be able to finish sex in the windows of opportunity that parenthood allows. It's not much good for hookups because you still need STD protection.
