Are you referencing the wife, the baby or both?

Er, I refuse to answer on the grounds that I like my home and current living conditions......

The only thing more high maintenance than me was the motorhome we traded after 8 years! Hopefully there is more money to spend on me now that we have a camper.

I'm sorry, I can't see the analogy between an RV and a baby.

You can't love a piece of equipment nearly the same way as your child.

I won't be leaving my kids outside all winter with nothing but a cheap blanket. There ain't no report cards, permission slips or teacher conferences for the RV.

Routine maintenance on a child doesn't include servicing her wheel bearings.

Although I do "baby" my RV quite a bit, I don't think the analogy is quite right. Perhaps more like a "mistress". It doesn't matter how many "trailer chores" I have, my son comes first. I look forward to the times when he can help me in more meaningful ways. He already helps a little, but he's not big, or strong, or coordinated enough (at age 2) to really be of much help other than fetching small stuff for me. But he loves to help.

If something happens to the RV, that's not typically a big deal. It really IS just money. And I'm young enough to make more money (or sell something else if I so choose). As much as I want to sometimes (sarcasm), I'm not going to sell my son!

But if something happens to my son, that's a whole different ball game!

I do like the "poop" comparison though! Sometimes it seems like I'm constantly dealing with poop!
