Letter to the Editor

Dear Sayers of Doom (who probably mean well):

Where do you get so much joy in telling me what a living HELL my life is going to be now that I'm going to have a child?

You don't know me very well but I should tell you that for various reasons, I don't need you to tell me how bad it might get. I haven't been running around with quiet lullabies and vanilla scented baby poop fantasies in my head. I've heard you loud and clear all these years, and well, I've observed YOUR kids too, the little brats preciouses.

I realize I have a lot to learn. And I will. There are days I'm scared shitless, so I really don't need any help from you over there with the negativity. And you over there with the horror stories and you in the polka dots with your dire predictions for me.

If you've had it hard, and you need to be heard, that's one thing. Maybe I'm not your best sounding board right now. If you really mean to help, then please find some other way to "encourage" me.



  • Where R they Capt? I will beat them up for you so you don't sully your hands or lil' Wow. I admit I had a twinge of regret when you shared you news, I am dumb what can I say? but then I was happy for you guys and then I was Jealous, lmao! Don't let those nazi moms get you down, because we know that it IS scary and so what? Women have been birthing and raising kids since God made Eve. Anyway, you did a great job defending yourself on this blog, you just tell me later where those Beyotches live and I will gladly aim my car at them...

    Yikes, I feel like a gladiator or sumthing, see how much I love you?

    Take care, Janet

  • "Living hell"? Oooo, I did notice it was a little warm in here. Maybe that's because I've got 3 of them! Ha!
    Congratulations by the way. It's a big change, and it certainly can be hard, but it's great.:)

  • You will do just fine. And I will happily kick anyone that needs kicking for you.

    Did I tell you that I gave birth to a 10 lb baby? ~laffin~ See we all have our stories....just there is always a positive but some people just cannot live in the good place.

  • Ooo! Choose me! Choose me! I want to kick 'em! Let me! Let me!

  • Yeah, sleepless nights, tantrums, diapers, my tantrums, teething, diapers... but I gladly take them all for each day I have a wonderful short person in my life who calls me mommy! I have all the power in the world! I can heal pain with a kiss, give total comfort in a hug, make fruit snacks seem rewarding, etc.

    I wouldn't give up any of it.
