Why do all domestic-adoption-military sites I google make me want to hide under my bed with my blanket, kitty and flashlight so the hate parade will pass us by? I'm in denial that I have to fall prey to some horrible stereotype about horrible parenting and unloveable children. I will love them and they eventually appreciate that love and we will figure it out without constant anger (me) or blood (them.)
Why do genetic parents get the benefit of saying 'we are happy with our one child' while adoption sites run the opposite route of 'we could never stop at two, so we bought a cargo bus for our bakers dozen'? We want to start with two. That will bring our kid count to two. After we have adapted and adjusted and lived we will discuss from there. No one gets to decide that but us and God. And if God tells us that two is good ya'll can keep your opinion on that a secret. The kind I don't need to hear.
Why can't each person redefine normal? Why can't I be in complete awe at thegrumbles ability to go 102 days without shampoo and the awesomest hair AND want to keep my redneckmommy-esque mohawk that sports kick ass toques? I made the mistake of having a downday in a girly pixie for church on Sunday instead of my normal messy frolicky burgundy mess. Outpouring was the 'oh so cute' praise from the normal crowd. Which is appreciated from those I hold near and dear and occasionally stalk my blog PORSCH. What I find awkward is the 95% that look at my 'normal' hair with trembling fluttery hands because it is too scary for them. It's just my hair. It doesn't mean I'm going to wear black, listen to death metal and be sad all the time. [If you do that's your business. Maybe get some meds or see someone about the sadness.] I am a 33-year-old that is learning to break out of a society imposed shell and it is freeing like Mary Poppins and her umbrella. It's not restrained or conformed or panty hose styfling.
Why did I have to google the big Downton Abbey spoilers after Facebook (thanks Facebook!) had to go telling the world that a terrible tragedy happened on the last episode? I had held off buying the season due to circumstance, money, excuses and now I don't have a choice. Thank's for making up that decision SOCIAL MEDIA. Now I have hardcore entertainment while I try to make a handpainted Smaug, Hobbit Door and Misty Mountain key for the Hobbit games in two weeks. I was originally leaning towards Spotify but nooo, Facebook always has to have the last word. It just couldn't handle Pinterest being the alphabitch at the party.
