Be On Notice

Everyone who truly knows me, knows I am not a kid person. Just not, never have been, don't plan on ever being one. I didn't grow up thinking about having a family with little urchins runnin' around. Gave the husband the "you know I don't want kids" speech prior to gettin' married. Friends and family know NOT to ask me to babysit. Went as far as sitting in the room while the husband got "fixed" just to make sure he went thru with it! Was that too much information? Sorry! Anyhoo, this weekend I found a sign I could not resist.



Isn't that the funniest! Now I'm just lookin' for the perfect place to hang it. What will a good heathen go for these days? I'm kiddin'.....well sorta.

This is so funny - I tried auctioning mine off at the local livestock auction but couldn't get any bidders!

There are days when I wonder what God was thinking when He gave me three rowdy boys!

Awh sweetie, there is nothing wrong with not wanting children. I was the same way once too.

LOVE the sign!

There's not a mother alive - if she's tellin' the truth - who wouldn't have loved that sign on one day or another.

Hang it as a warning on the gate into your place! :)

Very funny sign. I'm not a kid person either and I never planned to have kids but, surprise, I've got one who I wouldn't trade for the world. And only one. No more. One is enough.

bekah said...

haha thats awesome!

there is one similar in a local coffee shop that says "Unattended children will be given an espresso and a puppy"...I love it!

Sydney said...

hahaahahh I need that sign.

I am not big on kids. They seem to find me and follow me everywhere I go I swear. Well I am the leader of the 4h horse but they are older kids. They aren't dependent on me for things other than teaching them about horses. Kids are easier to teach (train) in the barn lol!

I don't ever want any though. I like the fact that I can send my nephews home when I get sick of them or they make me mad enough.

I love kids would love to have some , maybe if you find a few to sell....kidding Hey better that you are straitforward and know what you want, than to let family or society dictate what you should want

Ed said...

LOL! Amen to that...:-)

Leigh said...

I LOVE that sign! I need that for my house. I am the exact same way as you, never dreamt of having kids, never saw myself "growing up and having children." I don't dislike them, I just dont want them for my own!

LadyFi said...

Ha ha! There are a few days when I feel like selling mine on eBay!

I'm with Robynn: hang it on your gate as a warning...

carrielt said...

Can you get me one too!!!

I hate to say it but I would want to be in the room with TNT when he gets fixed too. Just to make sure!

prairierunner said...

I'm one of those childless wonders too. I need a copy of that for my front door.

When asked how he liked children, W.C.Fields the actor is reported to reply: "Yes, boiled"!

Love your sign!

Found you through Mikey and think your photos are 10 bazillion times better than mine.

Great sign! I am sure you will find someplace to hang it:)

Dusty Devoe said...

I hate it when people think everyone should have kids. It's your choice. I was a baby raising babies! Wouldn't have had it any other way! Very cute sign.

Lil Mama said...

I've seen one at the Feed Store that says Unattended children will be given a free Kitten !!

In the part of the States that I live in, there are unattended brats everywhere and it's just insane.

I have kids and someday I did want to sell them!! Still do and they are almost out of the house!

The W.O.W. factor! said...

YOu know Wifey, I am proud of you for being honest and true to yourself!!!
I have a niece (& I know of many others) who has 3 kids by 3 dads and my Sis is raising them! She is not a Mom...never should have been!

Besides...aren't our Cowboys the biggest handful of Kid Power anyone really needs???

Valerie said...

This is so great!!! Love it!!

GreenRanchingMom said...

Best sign ever! Those of us with kids have thought this about our own (GASP!) or some rotten kids being brats.

Love your confidence and honesty!
