Birkin Bag or Third Child?

Did you know families with three or more children are elitist and status conscious according to the informed people at The Washington Post?  I had no idea that all that time, while I was in agony from labor-induced hemorrhoids, slathering lanolin on my chapped nips, and mastering the penis tuck in a semi-conscious daze, I was actually being a snobby bitch.

That's a great article. Just goes to show that people are willing to judge others for just about any reason. It's never occurred to me to consider people with more children "elitist", I just figured they had more patience than I do.

I don't think it's the Post saying that -- the author was complaining that people were saying that to her.

What exactly is the "penis tuck?" Is this something I should do to my husband to avoid having too many kids?

HAHAHA! If only birth control were as easy as the penis tuck!

Penis Tuck v. - the careful placement - or tucking - of a penis inside a diaper/training pants to prevent discomfort.

According to the family expert, penises naturally like to lay a certain way. After two girls, I was very nervous about tucking a penis - especially a freshly circumcised one.
