As a rule, man's a fool

Although I don't really have anything new or exciting to share today, I feel the urge to post today. I'm sitting here at two in the afternoon listening to my daughter scream in her bedroom. After she managed to put off her nap for 2 hours I snapped and decided she could just cry herself to sleep...I know, horrible mother, that's me. Babies just don't get it! They have it great: Someone else changes their poop, they get to eat about 6 times a day, not to mention 2 hour naps in the middle of the day. So why are they so determined to do what the big people are doing? I guess that just goes to show how our society runs; we always want what we don't have. My mom always quotes this poem which I know I'll slaughter:
As a rule, man's a fool.
Always wanting what is not,
Never wanting what he's got.
When it's cold he wants it hot,
When it's hot he wants it cold.
Never wanting what he's got,
Always wanting what is not.
Or something like that. By the way, it's hot today and I wish it were cold :)
