My uterus is closed for business. I wasn't looking to have kids until at least a year after I got married anyway but staying at Rashan's mom's (RM) house enforced that. Two children under the age of 10 (3.75 & 9) live there full-time. Lots of screaming from the children and some directed at the children for misbehavior. Jesus be an earplug!!
I realized as we were headed to RM's that it would be my first time staying in a house with children that young probably since I was a child that young. My mom's side lives in Mississippi and the youngest never stayed at the house. On my dad's side the youngest included me. Only my sister and cousin were younger than me and they were 2 and 3 years younger respectively. I was already nervous about heading to RM's house because Rashan had warned me on multiple occasions the unruliness I had ahead of me. It wasn't enough. Ummmm.... WHY ARE YOU SO LOUD!?!?
Awakened before 9 a.m. by continuous wails over video games, "NATE KILLED ME!!! WAAAAAAAH!!" ad nauseum... on a game where you have unlimited lives... SOMEONE SHUT IT UP!! GIVE IT WHAT IT WANTS!! PLEEEEEEASE!! Thanksgiving day was awesome because there was an additional child or four under 10... yes... FOUR MORE UNDER THE AGE OF 10 not including the sweetest baby! Two of those under 10 were quiet, the others were egging on the terrors.
I'm not ready for motherhood!!! As I kept saying no children, Rashan told me I don't want children who don't listen. Right now I don't want ANY. And then those of you with children keep talking about being awakened at 6, 7, 8 a.m. on your days off... all the time? Uhhhh.... I'm not good with that kind of stuff. At. all. I read a funny fb status yesterday, "Newborns need to come equiped with a snooze button on top of their heads. I've never been a snooze button user, but at this rate, I'm almost converted. #1am4am7am" Funny in a nervouslaughterpleasenotmenotnowJesusIneedlike2-4moreyears kind of way. I will be very glad to be back in my childless house this week and my mom's childless house at Christmas. PRAIIIIIIIIIIIISE JESUS!!
*I'm taking a Monday Mindspacing hiatus this week because it's too hard with daily posting. If I'm not still posting daily next week, it may return. You know two years ago Rashan & I couldn't stop posting because we got into a competition over who would stop posting first. I want to remind you that I beat him by like 3 months. I don't win, I CRUSH THE COMPETITION!!
