There we were all sitting having a frank discussion about them NOT NOT NOT getting pregnant right now because I did not want to have to
Anyway, let me get to the point of the story. It was at this time that Ashley looked me right in the eye and very boldly stated that all my babies were double digits now (age wise) and I was getting lonely.
I of course began to disagree and count off the things I enjoyed about the kids being older but of course I was only met with a laugh from her and a sureeeeeeeee comment.
Is it true? Am I getting lonely? I don't think so. I think I am actually enjoying this phase of my life. I mean I think I have it pretty good.
On one hand:
I don't have to find babysitters to go somewhere.
I don't have to get up on the weekends if I don't want to. After all cereal is the breakfast of champs right?
I don't have to worry about diaper bags, car seats or strollers.
I don't have to pick out clothes or dress them.
I don't have to worry about formula, spit up or clean up poop.
I sleep through the night free from a crying baby.
On the other hand:
I do feel like a taxi cab.
I have more than my share of concerts, plays and other school functions to attend.
I have more than one PTA due to pay each year.
I have to deal with the teenage emotional roller coaster.
I mean there are arguments for both sides but honestly I think I can safely say that while I do enjoy holding a baby, sniffing their heads and even nibbling on their toes it is WONDERFUL to hand them back to their rightful mommy!
So, no Ashley I don't think I am lonely. (Not yet anyway. LOL)
