Strawberry Peach Lemonade

Life should always include a lemonade in hand when sunshine is a blazin’ during summertime festivities. And when I say festivities, I mean anything you do throughout the day. Workout out – lemonade. Going to the bathroom – lemonade. Walking the dog – lemonade. Yelling at the kids while they ruin the house since they are home from school for the summer – lemonade.
Speaking of kids, over the weekend I went to a BBQ that included all friends that either have children or are pregnant. For me, a person that has no yearning to have children at the moment, I still enjoy talking to people about theirkids. I like hearing their different experiences, their ups and downs, the love for their children. I like hearing all of it. What I do not like is when they start hounding me about making babies, even after I say I’m not ready. Or tell me that my husband isn’t getting any younger. It makes me not want to have children even more, just to spite them. I just hate when people act like having children isn’t a big deal. It’s a big f*cking deal. And to someone like me, it’s a very scary deal. I just wish I had more friends that understood that, or at least respected it.
Sorry to get all deep on ya today. These situations just continue to happen and that anxiety weighs pretty heavy on me for a few days after it’s brought up. And it just feels like the weight is completely on me. Whenever these friends bring up having kids or arepushing me to have kids, it feels so disingenuous. Not like they hope I have kids to experience a love that is so incredibly pure, but instead, they hope I have kids so they have someone to commiserate with. That’s what it honestly feels like, whether it’s true or not. It’s just a weird time in my life that feels so private but so in the spotlight at the same time. It’s a weird place to be in as a woman. Instead, I want to concentrate on a fun trip coming up. My husband has been wanting to rent a house for the whole family for a little family vacation for quite some time now. And we finally decided on Mexico. This won’t be until next year, but it’s still exciting to look forward to. If I was having a baby, we probably wouldn’t go there. Ya know, Zica and kidnappings and all that jazz. But since I’m without child and don’t plan on being with child, we can all go. And I can go to Aspen in a couple weeks. And the Caribbean in August. And I can also drink lemonade in a quiet house, filled with simple puppy snores. Seems like a pretty good deal to me. But who am I to judge" I’m the old 29 year old married woman that still isn’t pregnant. What do I know.
I just thought about what it must be like reading my blog for the first time, knowing nothing about me. Tough one to walk into. But I promise I’m positive 34% of the time!
