People ask me “Why do you read Mommy Blogs, you’re not a Mom?” My answer is usually “I don’t read them – I stalk them.” Figure that’s one way to shut them up. Actually I have a weird fetish for them. And no, I’m not a Mom. But, I used to be. And yes, this post will probably bring a tear to your eye but I promise, it will make you smile too.
Being a Mom is an experience one will never forget. I was blessed with a son Tommy who gave me 5 years of indescribable – Love. Then God blessed me again by allowing me to be there to hold him in my arms until Cancer took him and then God…took over. Not everyone gets the chance to say good-bye, that’s why I feel it was a blessing.
No way can I tell a person this story when they ask that simple question “How come you never wanted to have kids?”
You see most people don’t mean to hurt your feelings, some are just curious and then some are, well – assholes. Nothing personal – some days I just like to say Asshole. This conversation took place at my Nephew’s soccer game last weekend:
Person: “Is that your Kid?”
Me: “No, he’s my Nephew.”
Person: “Do you have any kids?”
Nosy Person: “Really. You never wanted to have any Kids?”
Me: “Just got really busy. Time Flew. Then BOOM – I’m sitting here with you!”
Dumbass Person: “You don’t like Kids do you?”
Annoyed me: “Yes I do.” (but I’m sure I won’t like yours)
Asshole Person: ‘I’m sorry. One more question. Did your Husband want Kids?”
Pissed off Me: ‘Yes – but his Balls are in my Purse and I said NO!”
Person: “Excuse me?”
Me: “I said – Yes, but the Bills were a curse so I just said No.”
Person: (still thinking).
Me: “Want to see a picture of my Cat?”
When stuff like this happens…I turn to my Mommy Blogs. These Women are just like me – not afraid to express themselves. Their lives are as screwy as mine and I don’t have kids. But, when I read their blogs I think what might have been – and it makes me Happy and Sad and…at times, it makes me ‘Burst into uncontrollable laughter. Usually happens when I’m in a Coffee Shop with my laptop and some nosy dumbass, person – peeks at my screen and says “Oh, it’s just another Mommy Blogger.” Then I get kicked out, of another Coffee Shop. Because I called some ladies Kid an Asshole.
