Are you ever jealous of the childless people in your life? The ones who can go to dinner anytime they want or travel? A friend recently told me she's going on a month long trip overseas. About 6 mos. ago, I would have been really, really jealous. Now that my baby is 11 mos. though, and a real fun girl, I find that I feel absolutely no jealousy about it. My daughter is worth so much more than fancy trips and the priciest meal out. This friend is kind of immature and makes comments like ' well I bet you wish you could travel, too.' I think it's hard for childless ppl. to understand that having a child means so much more than even the greatest adventure. I have to admit that I am so proud of myself for having that feeling. I def. didn't have that a few mos. ago! I feel like a real mom now!!! (My baby is my 1st).

I have a friend who has no children. And no doubt she does have nicer things than I do. Her home is something you see in Better Homes and Garden! And one day we were out to dinner and the subject of her SIL came up, she's a SAHM. My friend said I don't know why she does that (knowing I'm a SAHM), she'll never have what I have. I was in shock! And after we parted ways I kept thinking about what she said, and what a slam it was. But then I realized she may have nice cars, a beautiful home (that NO child could enter, she wouldn't even let my child in) and trips for every anniversary. But she will never have what I have!! And she'll never know how wonderful being a mother is. So nope, not jealous! I might think it's what I want for a minute, but then I get a big sweet hug from my boys and I know it's not!!
