Get Real

Has anyone been watching Baby Borrowers?


First off, I have a Step-Daughter who went and got herself pregnant at the ripe old age of 16, so this is show hits pretty close to home. Not that it really matters, but just so you know.

This show really, REALLY makes me mad. These young kids all sure they can handle the rigors of being a makes my blood boil, truly.

I have to admit that some of the couples made me more upset than others, and there were actually a couple that impressed me with their ability to handle tough situations.

But one chick wouldn't even wear the pregnancy suit? Give me a break! It's not like when you are pregnant you can just get rid of the belly whenever you want.

And another who couldn't decide if she wanted to work or be the stay at home parent, because they were both too hard? Oh. My. Goodness.

Now, on the one hand, I think this is a terrific thing. These stupid kids are learning how hard it is to be a parent and keep a relationship going. Hopefully they will invest in some really good birth control.

On the other hand, it is a lot like a train wreck. Horrible, aweful, and totally captivating.

I am sure Mr. Barefoot will have it on from now on, so it will be interesting to see where all this goes.....
