In light of the recent media judgement of the mother of the octuplets, I have a few things to say.
They are saying that she should be ashamed..she's irresponsible and stealing the tax payer's money to support her kids. people are saying how she shouldn't be allowed to have children and they are tired of paying for her mistakes.
I wonder if people would say that about me too.
I wonder if the midwife who delivered my son..the one who was so impressed by my birthing that she said I was made to have babies..didn't she look at my chart? Didn't she see that I was on Medicaid?
The people in the grocery store, don't they get pissed when they watch me carefully select nutritious foods for my family? Don't they know that's gov't cheese in my cart?
Those people who comment on my well behaved kids at the park...why aren't they giving us dirty looks? Don't they know that by their standards, these kids should never have been born?!
Don't they know I'm too poor to be a mother!!!

Vent over...

The kids are napping and I am enjoying some PEACE!
I'm excited about this new year. I am excited to learn to "bloom where I'm planted" :)
So, I've been planning my garden. I want an L-shaped raised bed with veggies, of coures, I'm not sure which ones yet. I also plan to have a big pot of cherry tomatoes and a big herb pot. Also hopefully a salad pot full of fresh baby greens :)
Yay! C'mon spring!
