Pregnancy Rant

Two of my favorite mommy bloggers are knocked up pregnant right now, and I'm pissed. It's not that I'm not happy for them -- I am, I really am -- it's just that I don't want to hear for nine months about how fulfilling and wonderful it is to be pregnant, with life growing inside you and all that, blah, blah, blah...and then once the baby is born, how wonderful and fulfilling it is to go through childbirth and have a new human being, blah, blah, blah...I guess the truth is, that's just not where I am right now. I had a kid, I'm not having another kid (for a variety of reasons) and I don't really want to think about pregnancy and childbirth and little babies. I read their blogs because they are funny and sarcastic and real, and when bloggers get pregnant... well... it's just not the same.

I wouldn't want to start over again, now that our son and daughter are grown, but I sure enjoy our grandson.
I was one of those girls that always played with dolls and I always wanted to be a mom. I didn't want more kids than the two we have and while they were at home and going to school, I wasn't into babies at all.
There are different stages in life, or seasons, as it says in the old Testament. Nothing wrong with not being into babies.
If you want a blog where you get lots of laughs, check out Walker, his link is on my blog, as long as you don't mind some (occasional) strong language. He writes about life situations in the funniest way!
Be happy in your season. :)
