Today, I would like to bring your attention to one of the tickers on the left side of your screen. The one that says, "I have been pregnant and/or breastfeeding for 4 years." Continuously. I don't really have much else to say to elaborate on that, except that I love being a Mommy, but I don't think I'll be all that sad when I'm done with the all-consuming-Mommy-mode phase of my life. It's been going on for plenty long enough.
I believe that women's lib means I can live however I choose - even if that means staying at home, baking cookies from scratch and knitting baby booties all the livelong day. I believe that discriminating against anyone based on their color is racism - even if they're white. I believe that the bad auditions on American Idol are the end result of twenty years of focusing on self esteem - "you are perfect no matter what" - piled on top of a century of growing up consuming music rather than making it together as a family. I believe the children are our future. I believe in miracles. I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.
