Christol, I hope hockey gets better for you?

We had a nice 5 day holiday?

I finally got to meet Frank's new nephew?

He is almost 3 months old?

Noah and I were sick the whole time with a cold?

One of those colds that just zaps you?

I wasn't happy about getting up for work this morning?

Only 3 weeks and 3 days til Christmas vacation?:smileyvery-happy:

I need some of those famous vibes, please?

The hag co-worker that was making trouble for me has been interviewing for another position?

My fingers and toes are crossed she gets the job and leaves me alone?

I've been wondering, but she is *very* secretive lately, and today my boss asked if I knew about it?

I'm currently on hold with the internet company.

DYK...

We had a nice Thanksgiving. We went to my mom's on Thursday for a traditional dinner with just us and my grandma.

Saturday, we went to my aunt's for hors d'oeuvres and games.

DYK...

...Christol, so sorry to hear about Max's game?

...this has been a rough season?

...so sorry to hear Craig punked you too?

...been having some "conversations" with Mariah, thanks to 16 and Pregnant, and Teen mom?

...she's horrified at how BAD the dads are in these shows?

...I informed her that bad dad behavior isn't all that uncommon?

...I can remember FLIPPING out on Gerad because he wasn't more involved with Mariah as an infant?

...HE'S the one who loves babies?!?!

...but when it comes to the sheer amount of effort and work that goes into it, even some of the best men, baby lovers themselves, fall short?

...and we were SO young...we had to grow into our roles?

...I think parenting comes more naturally for the women than it does the men?

...I'm not male-bashing or hating...I just honestly feel that it's 2nd nature to us, and they...well?

You can tell Mariah that I also wasn't a "baby" person and everyone kept saying,"'when you have your own.." Well even when I had Max, I loved him and I did what he needed but I never got "that" feeling and I felt like a horrible person because surely there was something wrong with me and I must be the most horrible Mother in the world. But, finally someone else said they weren't feeling the baby thing but they loved him, etc outloud and I swear I finally exhaled and said "me too". At the end of the day, I'm not a baby person. Does it mean I was a bad Mom, absolutely not. Did it mean I didn't hug my kids and love them constantly, nope. I just didn't go weak in the knees when they were babies (I did a little more for Claire but I know that was because of the accident) and that's ok. I go weak in the knees when they start smiling and my knees didn't firm up for years;)

I'm the exact same thing. Gerad hates it when I say I'm not a baby person...he says that it's implying that I'm not good with babies, when I was great with my own. I'm actually good with how I am. I know I wasn't a "bad" mother, but I kind of just survived those first months...good Lord, especially with Owen...Mr. Sleptin20minuteincriments. I get mushier looking back at pictures, but when I was actually living it? Yeah...not my favorite. 10 months and up, and I'm good. :) I'm not a baby person either. My friend Eve and I always said we'd make a great pair...she loves, loves, loves the baby stage, and not so much a fan of the tod
