I am going to be a SAHM. I’m going to drop out of school as soon as the government lets me. Going to find my DH. And am going to pop babies out like a sister wife!
I realised anew this week that I’ve been had.
Being a career-girl is not all it’s cracked up to be. Yes you can afford more stuff. Yes you can be independly wealthy (no I’m not there yet) and yes you don’t have to stay if he gives you crap.
Trying to break through the glass-ceiling is also not all it’s cracked up to be. As long as human beings are human beings, the glass-celing will exist. The brotherhood/ boys club mentality runs deep in men. I think it’s in their DNA, actually.
And feminism . . . oh feminism… What’s wrong with finding a decent man, like mine and the many others out there and being his barefoot and pregnant wench? I can’t think of anything better, actually.
So if Parent24 makes it to the next life, and you happen to be on it . . . look out for someone who reminds you of Big Tom’s Mom circa 2010 – 2040 (I reckon I can stop blogging on mommy blogs when Big Tom is 32) and make friends with me! I will be the one with the tickers always counting down the birth of my next baby. Will have more tickers than posts!
Oh and if Food24 makes it to the next life, I will also have a foodblog: How to feed a family of 20 for under R10 000!
