I’m at the age where all my friends are starting to have children. I decided a few years ago I wasn’t going to have any. No, I’m not defective, it’s my family, they are. About four years ago I asked my mum if she’d watch Katy (my Jack Russell Terrior-ist) for me while I went away for a weekend. I thought how bad could it be, I mean she raised me right? What a great weekend it was, practically “childless” and free to come and go as I pleased. But when I went to pick up the dog, she was hiding under the baby grand piano that tortured me as a child, hyperventilating like she was running the marathon. So like every good “mother” I asked my mum what the deal was, to which she replied without missing a beat, “she’s okay, she just swallowed three of my estrogen tablets from my nightstand.” Right away I decided there were two things I wouldn’t rush into, childbirth or menopause.
I digressed as usual, back to my friends. I don’t suppose it’s off-kilter to want children at a certain age, though I don’t really believe in the biological clock thing, why hurry in your thirty’s? I see forty something women having children all the time. My sister was one of those. At some point I suppose I was disappointed they all decided to get married or have significant “others,” I mean after all, I’m still not sold on the fact that the boys have cooties thing is all myth. But good friend that I am, I went along with them anyway and embraced all these men in their lives. If not genuinely, than at least figuratively I accepted they were mostly there to stay. This new chapter though, to me it’s overwhelming. They talk about cycles and child-rearing and tell me often enough I should have one too, that I don’t have to have a man to have a child. Huh? I must have been so embarrassed in that particular sex education class all the blood rushing to my face clogged my ears. What a novel concept. But I think I’ll wait though, I mean heck, I forget to feed myself often enough, I can’t imagine having the responsibility of feeding a little Cao. Sorry if this post it too much information, it’s actually tongue in cheek. Mostly. I suppose this new really sexy skirt from Leezu! has my mind a wandering and it filled the blog with some random absentminded thoughts today. Now, if I can just find where I put those birth control pills. Katy?
