One of my buddies was messing about me being pregnant and of course the I.M’s and emails started coming. “oh my goodness are you really pregnant” “congrats” “why dint you tell me, I’m mad at you” and of course the God mother requests, hmmn I wonder why I did not get any God father requests. teeheee.. Sorry to disappoint o, I am soooooo not pregnant, .no sarriiie bob. Nope, Nope, Nope. lol. not yet anyways. If I were, oo boy do I feel sorry for the people around me. A pregnant diva is no joke o. I want foot rubs, scalp massages, the works!
Anyhoo it did have me thinking, how my lifestyle would change drastically with kids. My goodness I can see it now, working quietly, and being jerked out of my serenity with loud baby noises. Keep in mind I hope and pray my first will be twins so that’s two for two loud baby noises. Knowing the kind of baby I was, I’m most likely going to have naughty babies, you know the kind you think are soooo darn adorable but can’t be bothered to oogle and play with them because they just wont stop crying. Yes, I was that baby. Feed me, I cry, Bathe me, I cry, Play with me, I cry. I told mums that I just had a lot to say and was frustrated because I couldn’t get it out. lol. Yeah I love friendly babies, you can play with them all day long and never get bored because all the do is giggle and smile. Everything you do is funny. lol.
Last trip I took, I was sitting in the boarding lounge and I saw this lady with 2 young ones, one toddler and a baby. She was really working it, trying to hustle the stroller, the bags and hold the little one. gosh, I just kept trying picture myself with that stroller, the diaper bags and the young one that you have to hold on to. I’m such an impatient traveller, I like to board first, I don’t like delays and most of the time, I sleep through my flight so imagine me travelling with 2 adorable ones. Does this mean, my laptop stays home? does this mean I cant just get on the plane and sleep? do I have to change diapers during the flight? Seeing as I plan to be a hands on mum, you know the kind that takes babies to work, I wonder how Ill manage. Oh and lets not talk about visiting NIG and mosquito bites, I already know my baby’s first mosquito bite will get me very upset. One of my little cousins was visiting NIG and oh my Goodnessss.. when they were leaving, I saw this boy at the airport, I have never seen such a red spotted child in my life. They did not take it easy on him at all.
One thing I know for sure is that kids are a huge responsibility, diapers are not cheap, baby true religions cost a grip and breast feeding is no joke. Oh lord, do I have to say goodbye to my perks, oh nooooooo!.. Will I have stretch marks like Ushers Fiancee who by the way looked very err questionable in some picture I saw. Will I have to entrust someone else with the fruits of my loins because I need to get to a meeting, will my associates mind me bringing little Toni and Little Zion (yes I have names. lol) along or will they frown at it. So many questions, I know one thing for sure, one of the reasons I decided to work for myself was because I did not wanted the independence of being able to call the shots as to how much time I spend with my kids.
I’m talking kids, I have not even gotten past the fear of labour. Is it true that the epidural needle is like a gazzilion inches long and fatter than most needles? or that if you rip you wont even feel the pain because the labor pain will be more? Ok I just made my skin crawl. Ive heard so many stories from friends with babies and they are never pleasant. Oh well, I guess when the time comes Ill figure it out. ok truth be told, Im secretly looking forward to that day when I break the news to me fam.
PS: I am soo homesick, lord please give me some valuable free time so I can visit NIG. I would prefer this by next month if not sooner. I still have my other request with you, please do not forget that either. Your child T. aka Mrs Vicker
