Hats Off to Mommies

I love kids, but I don't think I can ever handle being a mom myself. It is rather amusing, because I had always planned on becoming a mom before I turned 30. Now I am not saying I am past that age...;)

The events of the past few weeks have made me realize, though, that the birthing process and having to take care of an infant may just not be for me.

My sister gave birth to her second son last week, and her stories horrify me. Don't get me wrong - baby Eli is adorable and I am more than sure that it was all worth it. But having to go through hours of PAIN, getting cut open, having to deal with healing, thinking about how to increase breast milk production, feeling pain when your baby feeds (but having to just grit your teeth and bear it), blah blah blah...

Mommies, you ought to be awarded medals of honor for what you go through. If you need a babysitter every now and then, give me a call - as long as it does not involve having to clean poo. :P

  2. Trust me, after they are born you forget about all the stuff you went through to get them here. Congrats on the new member of your family!
