I don't like u pple

Merry Christmas everyone. Hope u have a fun filled, safe day today. Jesus is the reason for the season (that reminds me, I should pray).

So y don't i like you pple? Who are these pple i don't like, sef? Married pple and Mothers. Yes, i said it. I'm wide awake at 5 am, don't feel like reading a novel, or watching TV, so my mind is wandering. I've been home since Friday and i have pretty much been helping with my 4 month old niece (who is gorgeousness personified, btw). That shit is HARD!!!! The little munchkin controls 3 grown women. She pretty much held me hostage for over 4 hours yesterday. She's tired, but refuses to sleep. You can see her fighting sleep, Ms. Restless, Drama queen in training. She finally sleeps, i hold her for an extra 30 mins, 15 mins more than the advised time to hold her after she sleeps, just to be on the safe side. As soon as i slowly, gently lay her down, her face scrunches up and she starts her tearless cry. Pick her up and she's perfectly calm and peaceful in less than a second.

In case u can't tell, i have no experience with babies. This is all new to me. The last time i was around a baby was in 1999, and that was my neighbor's baby. How come pple don't tell u how hard it is. You just hear about the glamorous, picture perfect side of motherhood. XYZ just had a baby, u see the pictures on Facebook (awwwwwwwwwwww), full stop. No feedback. No, i haven't had any sleep in 3 days or whatever. I have witnessed my sister not have any sleep for close to 24 hours.

Same thing goes to the married folks, or should i say the newly married folks i see on facebook. I am being bombarded left and right by classmates getting married. At least 6 pple i know have gotten married this december, one more is getting married tomorrow. Nobody comes back to give feedback. You see the lovely dress, and all that good stuff and if ur head is not in the right place u don't remember that life continues after the wedding day.

As a single, childless, bachelorette, all i ask for is some feedback. Is that too much to ask on this rainy Christmas day somewhere in Atlanta?

  9. Compliments of the season!

    LOL @ your little rant. Will you give all your single friends feedback when you get married?

    But I understand what you mean, my friends used to say that all their girlfriends suddenly become very secretive when they get married. It was precisely for that reason I started writing my Journey Down the Aisle blog after I got married.

  10. :) A big wide smile on my face!
    Once you leave the public glare of your wedding ceremony you are 'well? or ill? advised to keep everything that happens to you private!
    When I had my baby, a botched procedure left me 'almost dead' and the pain of healing plus taking care of a brand new baby left me with thoughts very similar to yours..."Why didn't anyone tell me it would be like this"
    I have concluded that:
    1. It'd be because you wouldn't believe
    2. So you wouldn't change your mind.
    3. C'est la vie!!!
    btw, nice heartfelt blog...!
