Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love being a mother, had 3 VERY easy low maintenance pregnancies and had/have no problems breast feeding. And when I haven’t been feeding someone else, I’ve been carrying someone else. It’s been over 6 years and my body has not been my own.
I am going to start a list of things I want to get done when I get to do my own thing which should be in about 8 months (June 2007).
* spray tan
* facial peel or some type of skin resurfacing
* tooth whitening
* a screwdriver!!
Even as I type this little list, I feel sad that I won’t have any more babies. It is so unfair that it costs money to raise little people. Children should go to those who have the patience and willingness to provide a positive environment.
**Warning: THIS MAY MAKE YOU SAD… I once saw this story about a poor mother (I won’t mention what country, on the off chance that they are looking at this little blog) who wanted a better life for her baby, so she handed it over on t.v. to a rich couple… The mother did NOT want to give up her baby, she just needed financial help to care for the new baby and it’s siblings… She did not look like she had access to birth control and it was really bad to see her sobbing as she handed the baby over. I’m sure a few dollars a month would have changed her life and allowed her to keep her children together.
Ok, now I made myself depressed! :( and no, I’m not usually a downer… but this is one of those subjects that has been bothering me lately.
