As I mentioned earlier I have A LOT of friends who are pregnant and due relatively close to one another. First there was Nikki who had her baby end of March then a week later Mary followed with her little girl. Fast forward 3 weeks and a few days later and now 2 more are due this next week. Jenny, is at the hospital right now, while Laurie who has the same due date is still waiting. Well, technically Jenny is 5 days early. So begins this new chapter that I really don’t understand.
I know this might sound horrible to some of you, but I don’t particularity like infants. Truth is, I am terrified of them. I’m also terrified of fish and birds, but infants are a pretty close 3rd. The irony of this is that I teach a baby music class once a week. I know what you are thinking, how can a baby take a music class…right? Well, it’s really more of a time for the mom’s to cuddle with their new babies while we sing songs. In this class I practice my acting skills because I have to pretend that I just LOVE infants. I love the way the stare blankly at me, the way they smell like poopie diapers, and the way that they spit on me…its all so cute (notice the sarcasm).
All of this baby business makes me feel as though at 27 I have missed the boat. I am in no way ready to be a mom yet, as i mentioned before, I am terrified of infants, but still I wonder…am I missing out?
