What about me? 1.5 years after giving birth to Mimi and all I see everywhere are adorable FAT babies! I don't envy pregnant woman, or desire to be pregnant right now. Don't get me wrong, I click on the Maternity link on Gap.com and check out the chique preggos there, but I'm happy getting skinnier right now rather than more robust! But when I see little fat babies in Moby wraps and infant car seats and on blogs posts like this one all I want to do is have anther fat baby to nurse and cuddle.
|I miss her littleness :-(|
Besides enjoying my new smaller self, what keeps me from having another baby right now? Mostly money. My friend Julie always tells me "Just have another baby, you'll find the money." She had her daughter when she was in her mid thirties and tells me one of her big regrets is not having more kids when she was younger and still able to. Yes you do "find the money." If you've followed my blog for awhile, you know my daughter was a "delightful surprise" or and "unplanned blessing." All great euphemisms for unplanned pregnancy. We had to change up our lifestyle alot to accomodate or beautiful daughter in our life. I would never change my path to today for anything, but that doesn't mean I would get pregnant again and believe that we'll "find the money."
So I'll just have to keep drooling over other people's fat babies and push back my emotional side for my more rational side.
