Today, I am thinking. I have been thinking about these things since Jade turned 3, December. I want us to have another baby. I don’t want Jade growing up feeling alone like I did. I want her to be able to have someone to play with when her sibling gets old enough, but I don’t want them not wanting to play with each other due to age differences. I was thinking about waiting till she starts Pre-K next August (2012), but it took us over a year to get pregnant with Jade. I had a terrible time when she got here, due to Rh factor, her being in NICU for 9 days, and so on. Also, we only have 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, so then I was thinking on waiting till we had enough room for 2 kiddos. So they can each have their own room or space, but with waiting could be more than a year, or 2 or 5 years.

If it takes a year or longer to get pregnant then Jade will already be in school, but being 4-5 years apart make a difference? I don’t know the answers to the question since I was the only one playing with my imaginary friends, or toys, being the teacher to my dolls in my room, and playing on my swing.  Since I know some of my readers have kids, maybe you could give me advice?

I am a stay at home mom, and of course like most parents you go through the in and outs of wanting another child, baring the pressure of another kid, and more things you have to have responsibility for. I know parenting isn’t easy, but if you want something, then you have to make changes and accept that things happen. You have to think differently, and find time to bring another child into the world.

I also want to get back to my “goal” weight of 120lbs, but with wanting another baby.. Idk LOL

I guess I will just have to wait and see, who knows, right? If we do have another baby.. I think Jade is going to be jealous. She throws a fit if Hubby even touches me, kisses me, and holds my hand or we are too close. 😀 the joys of motherhood.


Laughs in the Sun

It is a wonderful time, to sit in the water, or a pool,
drink your soda and eat the brownies too.
To smile, and laugh at all the fun we had.
To lay back in the water to get my hair wet.
I kick and giggle as I splash,
as the drops of water fall down my back.
I giggle through the chanting of others,
as I hold my hand up to block my eyes from the sun,
it is too bright.
Now all I need is my mom’s camera,
to point at me, as I smile.
We all had some laughs in the Sun;
I hope your weekend was as happy as mine.

I want this!

This is what Jade did yesterday that lightened up my day…
I was sitting in the chair in the living room; Jade was standing in front of me, so I picked her up like a baby. I was brushing her hair behind her ear with my fingers, as I was telling her “Jade is such a pretty baby. Jade is my baby.” I then sat her down in the floor in front of me; she was laughing and carrying on. She got up and went to her bedroom, as Hubby and I sat and talked about his day. Jade, eventually, came from around the corner and I was sitting close to the hallway. She stood in front of me with her elbow out saying “Do this”, I looked at her elbow and her arm, trying to figure out what she was talking about. I looked at her as I said, “Do what?” She then comes to me and points to my lap, “I want this, Jade the baby, and I want this Mommy.” I started laughing as she stood in front me, she was kicking up her legs so I could cradled her like a baby 😀 She really knows how to make Mommy smile!

Pro-Life / Pro-Choice

Pro-Life / Pro-Choice

This has to be the most hardest thing to talk about.  Ether someone is “Pro-Life” or “Pro-Choice”, why can we not be neutral?

I am, however, for both. I believe that everyone has their reasoning into why they would choose to give the baby up for adoption, or having an abortion. Maybe they don’t know if they could just give their baby away after carrying it within them.

Have you ever just sat back and viewed the life of someone who has to make a decision of keeping the baby, adoption or abortion?

To keep the baby when you are the one who wanted it, or because your planning is the easiest decision. You wanted the child. You wanted someone to keep you company, to hold, to protect, to teach, and you value everything and anything they see, do, or say.  Some people also think that maybe they should keep their child because they made their bed, they should lay in it, too.

Adoption, maybe you are too young to “keep” your child. You know you are not mature enough to take on the responsibility of another human being coming into the world that you have yet to adventure. I do believe in adoption. There are so many married, single, or partnered individuals out there who want that bond! Maybe they are seeking adoption because they can never have children of their own? Or maybe they don’t want to risk a fetal disease passing on to their children? Another thing, there is always adoption because people would rather give that child a nicer home than living in foster homes all their life.

Abortion, some may say that “abortion” is killing a human being. Maybe it is killing a human being, but would you want to carry a child within you that you didn’t want to begin with? As an example, someone who is raped and it just so happens the girl gets pregnant by the person who raped her. She would have to carry that baby within her. Could you imagine looking down at your belly and images of how the raped happened flashes before your eyes? Going through that day in and day out? I couldn’t imagine that. I wouldn’t want a child coming into the world that I never wanted to begin with.

Another thing, what would you say to your child when it got bigger and asked did you want me? Would you lie to them? Don’t we teach our children to not to lie? We teach them manners. You can’t lie to your child its whole life, eventually the truth comes out.

Well, anyway, As you may see I am in the middle. I think you need to do what is right for you. With doing what is right for you, then you are not making anyone else happy but yourself and that’s all that matters!
