Blue Like the Sky

I can't wait to surf around in these waves! For now, I recall that a faculty member in my PhD program (I miscarried my dissertation...gotta keep that metaphor rollin') used to spout things like "Writing your dissertation is a wonderful and logical time to have and nurse a baby." Heh.

Stephanie T.

what would i be doing if i didn't have kids?
omg...just hit me between the eyes whydontcha...i'd be published by now in some educational journal, head of my department at the university, and traveling the country spewing my wealth of knowledge...my house would be clean, i'd have no c-section scars (or the emotional scars of lost babies), i'd have traveled, there'd be money in the bank...and i wouldn't wake-up every morning mourning the loss of my 'self' or my 'purpose'...am i bitter? often...would i make the same choice again? in a heartbeat


I especially liked the cats and the drinking image. Just wanted to tell you that I am a homeschooling mother who never intended to have children. I didn't have the same lofty goals as you however, I would probably have become a groupie for a second rate Euro trash band or maybe a cosmetic salesgirl in Las Vegas. So I gave up a few dreams, but all in all, I can't really imagine not having them.
