No one ever said being a parent is easy. Still, it's better to never have a child at all, than have one and take its life away. I've been horrified by recent news stories of parenting gone wrong from mommy blogger Lacey Spears who was arrested for systematically poisoned her son Garnett to Justin Ross Harris of Georgia who "accidentally" left his 22-month-old son in the car all day. Based on the behavior of some of these so-called parents, something needs to be said.

A pair of gay Humboldt penguins named Jumbs and Kermit (cutest names ever?) have been a couple since 2012, when they paired up and waddled off in love at the Wingham Wildlife Park in Kent, England. The one sad point in their coupling? They can't reproduce together. As they've exhibited no interest in the female penguins in their habitat, Jumbs and Kermit would never be able to become parents. At least, that's what everyone thought.

I know! It brings tears to my eyes right now. I want to share the whole story with you because what was revealed for him will help you stop hiding in work and naturally get you attracting in high quality men.
According to a just-released Gallup poll, most Americans — to the tune of 58 percent — think the "ideal age" for women to begin having children is "25 or younger." Scarily, there is no bottom cap for that range, which in theory means 58 percent of our great country may or may not support teen pregnancy.
Because I want to stay happily married and give our three-year-old son the kind of joyful home I didn't have while I was growing up, I put my marriage first. That's right. My husband comes before anyone else in my life, including my beloved child.
