"Baby Daddy" Application

Updated on January 8, 2013

This "application" actually started as a joke. It turned out to be pretty funny so I decided to share it. Plenty of women can probably agree with some of the things on this application that was put together using different single mom experiences. So if you are looking for someone to father your child, this may in deed serve as a good check list for you. Although this is meant as a joke, having a child is very serious business. If you are interested in bringing a child into the world, please be sure that you have readied yourself as much as possible for the experience and that you know that anything can happen. A child needs lots of love, no matter the circumstances.

      Speaking of old sayings, it does seems true, that hindsight is always 20-20. Things have certainly changed a lot since the days of the kid's rhyme, "Frankie and Betty, sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G. First comes love, then comes marriage..."

      Well sir the joke is more like that old saying "If I knew then what I know now..." This is not an application for a "meal ticket". It does talk about more than just money. Like I mentioned before it was put together from different experiences from single moms. You are correct about every child being entitled to the best the parents can do, but there are some "parents" in this world that don't put their best into being a parents at all. Even thought I look at this "application" as a joke, there is nothing funny about having a child and raising them to the best of your abilities. I wish that I would have been more careful about choosing who I had children by so instead of dwelling on it, I've learned from my mistakes and I try to pass on some good info to help someone who make not know these things.

      You are very right. Those are some very important things that you should now before you even get involved with a person that you may want to have a child with, but unfortunately some girls/women don't know this. Thanks for the comment.

      Gosh Snap-

      I guess my sense of humor must be on the fritz, because I don't see anything funny here.

      Every child should be entitled to the best the parents can do. You, however, (and maybe this is the joke I'm missing) appear to be interviewing for a meal ticket.

      I'm reminded of the old joke about the IRS:

      List all income from last year:

      List the amount you spent last year:

      Remit the difference.

      Sorry, this must just be to subtle for me.

      Seems to be a few questions not even mentioned... Do you believe in marriage? Do you have plans to get married in your future? What are you looking for in a wife and mother of your children? Can you provide any references other than your mother about your Father? If I was single, I'd be asking these for sure! Cute.
