lamia: how do you feel about children?
(i would like you to know the original myth involving lamia went chompity chomp chomp nom nom nom)
I have mixed feelings about children.
Babies - cute at a distance, kind of smelly, I like their tiny little fingernails and booties
Toddlers - hate. I loathe them with every fiber of my being. Even though they are occasionally amusing.
Elementary - charming but exhausting. I prefer upper elementary kids while my brother likes the littler spawns. Both are fun provided I can send them home at the end of the day or be the cool aunt.
Pre-teen - pretty cool if patience-trying and argumentative. Starting to function like real human beings now but very clumsy and unskilled b/c that brain is still developing and honing. jokes are fun with them.
Teen - what are those? are they the cousin-shaped lumps on various couches and chairs with their faces in their phones during the entire family gathering. i’m so jealous.
