People who want babies.

It's pretty normal to be female and want to have a baby. It's expected, and it's even kind of cute.
 But some women seem to yearn for a baby even when they are literally being driven insane by the kids they already have.

To me, this seems like people who want kittens. It's cute when you don't have any cats.
It's ridiculous when you are up to your elbows in cats already.
I don't want to have a baby. I want to have a person. I want to create a childhood for someone and help them grow up into a wonderful person. Wanting a baby when you are overwhelmed with your existing kids seems like wanting a kitten or a puppy when you don't enjoy the cats and dogs you already have. Isn't the baby age fleeting, while childhood lasts for several years at least? Do these people just want to relive the infant stage over and over again? Do they somehow not realize that each new baby will become part of the tribe of pygmies that are slowly draining them of life?

It wouldn't be so weird if the people that seem to ache for another baby weren't the same people that complain almost constantly about their kids.
