Having A Baby

Poppin' one out and payin the bills.

I was going to write about having a kid. I've never had one....seen some in the wild...but I think it's time. Then I started writing about it, got kind of bored with it, and lost direciton.

What it comes down to is, my credit is bad. Like...really bad. If you read my blog from yesterday, you can probably see why that's the case. I can't blame it all on getting fired a couple times though, because I was pretty irresponsible with my money in my early to mid 20's. What I'm trying to say is that I spent most of my pay checks at bars and clubs, which makes for a fun night out at the time (and free night out for some friends), but it didn't pay off in the long run. Get it...PAY OFFFFFF?!?!?! Which is probably something I should have done with my bills at the time or I wouldn't be in this situation.

So, I guess this is a blog about having a kid.

You can't have a kid with bad credit. I mean you can physically make it happen, as long as one of you is a male, the other is a female, you do the thingy, the guys swim towards the promised land, one breaks through the gate...yada yada yada.

If you're gay, of course you can adopt, or do that thing where you borrow somebody elses guys or take out a short term 9 month lease on someone elses promised land.

Wanted to be clear, just in case you were unaware of how it all works.

So anyways, you shouldn't have a kid when you have bad credit. Who am I to judge though, right? I mean if you have bad credit, and a ton of money in the bank, then yeah, that's cool. But usually if you have a lot of money, then you also have a lot of credit.

What I'm trying to say is, babies seem to cost a lot of money, and with a credit score of 2, and one credit card with a limit of $2.50, it wouldn't be financially responsible for me and my fiance to pop one out.

Pop one out happens to be the scientific term for giving birth.
