Tips like, "If you don't want a baby don't have intercourse.  If you are raped, take the morning after pill."  eyesroll.gif

EJ Lang,
While Im starting to agree that you are not a troll, Im starting to wonder if you are drinking daytime martinis. Because the more you post, the less sense you make.

Sucks when they're sick eh?  I don't call in sick when my kids are sick because their daddy 'babysits' as he calls it.

See? We're all different. If dh referred to looking after his own children as "babysitting", all hell would break loose.

Yep, condoms work and if they don't there are other options, don't forget outer course.  thumb.gif

I'm sure my friend who used a condom and ended up pregnant will be happy to hear that.

You didn't say, "Use birth control."  You said don't have sex.  And maybe outer course gets you off, but it's really not something I find inspiring.

 

My pregnancies have all been planned.  Including what month they happened in.  And I am a tremendous slut.  Obviously I've figured out birth control.

Martinis are too strong!  I wish I had a good excuse for what goes on in my brain!  I have a cold too, so we're all just chillin' sitting outside and about to play "Go Fish" with a 2 and 4 year old!

I'd put a stop to that saying immediately. One does not babysit ones own children... one parents... or takes a turn solo parenting. Don't ever think that words don't have power to shape ideas.

I have issues.  I had 2 unplanned pregnancies (one ended in a miscarriage) and 1 planned.  The planned one took me over a year.  So you can't always get things the way you think they should be.

You're not kidding. My plans for my pregnancies went completely out the window, in every possible way...except that I did end up with four children, just as I wanted (and, the way everything else had worked, I honestly expected dd2 to be twins, just because it would have been another monkey wrench!).

Very true, I have seen this. A good friend of mine returned to work through financial necessity. It turned out that her two kids loved daycare and absolutely thrived in it. That didn't bother their father, but their previously SAH mom was sort of insulted by it - she felt that it invalidated her earlier "sacrifices" to stay at home - she almost seemed to wish that they DIDN'T like daycare so much. It made her pretty angry for a while and less than ideal as a parent, but she eventually got over it.

 

My own sister gave up work when her second DD was born. DD1, who was four, complained for the first few weeks that she missed her friends at daycare and wanted Mommy to go back to work. My sister was kind of hurt by that, she thought that her DD1 would be thrilled to have her at home full time. DD1 eventually got over it and so did my sister.

 

Things don't always turn out as we expect, and there is often an adjustment period when we have to let go of our preconceived notions.

Fortunately, it's not up to you to decide for the rest of us!    You can go off into your special perfect world, and leave the rest of us to enjoy our imperfections.  

 

 After work, of course.

Outer course is better than having an unplanned pregnancy.

Yuck.  No, it isn't always.  I'd much prefer my 9 year old to half an hour of fun.

Some one mentioned that I had said this, I disagree.  People work, people have kids, it's not up to me to decide what's best for other people's present situations, also none of my business really.  I must say, there's a lot of miscommunication on this board, I'm here for insight, information and encouragement to and from all moms whatever their choices may be.  I promote breast milk, home made food, most of the crunchy stuff, and I like that it's becoming more mainstream.  Thankfully where I live, we do have choices whether we want to put our kids in daycare or not.
