Just some random reasons Mother's Day sucks.
If I was a mother, people wouldn't question why I wanted to stay at home when we move. I want to focus on my business, which I can't do working outside of the house this much right now. Thanks to tivo I can eat these while watching this and this whether I work outside of the house or not. So, no, that's not the reason I want to stay at home.
If I was a mother, I would get a gift at all these places today, according to their billboards. Don't I get a free gift for trying to be a mom. Maybe a free bottle of cl0mid with the purchase of a salad? or a 15% discount on treatments for parties with 8 or more guest? Not even a buy one get one kind of deal out there?
If I was a mother, every time we go to look for places to live, when people asked how many bedrooms "for the two of you" I could say three or four and not get strange looks. What? You've never heard of having an office? He needs one so he can study to get his PhD, and I need one so I can work from home, because I can't stay at home yet. (refer to reason #10)
If I was a mother, when we could get first pick at the three bedrooms on campus. Because students with families get chosen first. Students with infertile girlfriends are just shit out of luck, bitches.
If I was a mother, people would stop telling me I have so much time to create my beaded jewelry, sew my niece a dress, or start my new idea (that's not really so new, but I think I finally found a way to carry it out when i get back from vacation, wooo hoo!) because I would be too busy with my child(ren).
If I was a Mother, I wouldn't be such a bitter infertile.
This was the first Mother's day my mom spent without all her children. I'm in Florida and K is in St. Louis. I got my mom and grandma coasters with pictures of A in them. I wish I could have kept them for myself, though!
