Why I'm looking forward to having one of those kids.

Most importantly, I can't wait for my stats to go through the roof once I become a mother.
I can FINALLY call myself a mommy blogger.
I won't be shunned from groups of women my age.
I can finally let go of myself and stop having my own dreams.
I won't have to put up with the disapproving looks when I tell people we don't have any kids yet.
I may be invited to a lunch date at McDonald's Playland. Hopefully the other mother won't mind if I'm the one going down the slide.
I can finally stop pretending to love being a dog mom and give Frederick to the pound. Because I hear that you can't have a dog around when you have a baby.
I can start watching Oprah. Gawd. Finally!!!

{disclaimer: i recently over-heard an interesting conversation by two women that sparked this post. i in no way think that this applies to all mothers. i still want to have kids some day. some day.}

I love overhearing conversations like this. Cracks me up everytime, and makes me feel that much more normal for not being normal. Especially in this state.

hahahahahaha HA! hi-lar-ious. I love mommy-blogs, but don't want to have one.
I like being a dog mom! And honestly, can say, that we don't have any plans of having our own kids...maybe fosters, but not any time soon...

Anyways. This made me laugh for days.

What a rich conversation that must have been!

Those are the same people who probably look down on me for not being the kind of perfect mom that they are.

If you give Frederick away who will babysit??

You point out valid benefits to mommy-hood. Perhaps I should reconsider my decision to not reproduce. ;-)
