Pregnant with Terror

About me:

I am about as normal as a girl you can find. I have a proportional head to my middle to my legs to my feets. So grateful for my fam and friends. My favorite drinks are orange juice (the fresh squeezed one). I am an open book you ask I answer. I am a nanny and I watch children. Not my own children I do not have my own children. Yet. I want my own children so that I can finally watch my own and care for them. Ha I sort of care for the children I watch now but they're different when they're yours. They are precious and part of you forever and ever. Everyone else's don't mean a toilet pile after that. Can't wait to be pregnant and glowing!


  1. I guess to a lot of women out there, the fulfillment of their role and purpose in life is to become mothers; many literally live only for this. I'm a guy so I really can't comment, but I find that very underwhelming and sad.

    1. *sigh*

      You're not the only one. I always find it disheartening when a girl tells me that all she wants is to prepare herself to be The Bestest Mother Ever.

      At least it isn't all of us, though.

  2. Speaking as a newlywed, pregnancy talk makes my husband and me very uneasy. We are both fairly certain we'd be mediocre parents. No reason to lie to ourselves.

    1. That's why Scientist Fiancee and I have been on a campaign since we started dating about five years ago to remind our family (mothers mostly) that we'll NEVER bear them children. Luckily for my mom, my brother's already made two babies, so I'm off the hook. She celebrates her "grandkitten" and "grandsnakes" that I've given her. Fiancee, however, has a younger sister with no s.o. on the horizon. Poor girl...

  3. Having a child these days is something that should be heavily considered. If you're too selfish, busy, uninterested, or simply want to make yourself your top priority, it's not the time for a baby. And I wish more people realized this.

  4. I don't think having the ambition to be a mother is as bad as you guys are making it out to be. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a mother more than anything. That doesn't mean I don't have other ambitions. I'm training to become a black belt and I'd like to have a career (recent college grad), but for me family always comes first. I hope to be able to balance a family with my other ambitions, but being a mother is probably my top priority (though not right now, I'm only 22), and if I had to choose, I would be a mother rather than a career woman.
