Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

Why her and not me

This evening I went to Target because my husband (who I have been asking if he needs anything for vacation) ran out of shaving gel and of course needed it immediately. Being the nice wife that I am, I volunteered to run out and get it. I made my way through the store getting this and that. Was mildly irritated by a young woman with a little baby who was too busy picking out her cold medicine to pick up her screaming newborn.

When I made it to the checkout I noticed that the girl in front of me in line was someone that I graduated from High School with. She was there with her young son and appeared to be pregnant with another one. I couldn't help but feel so jealous. I hate saying hi to people I haven't seen in years cause you know what the first question is. "Do you have any kids?" I hate just saying no, like we don't want any; but I really don't like to explain how we are infertile either. So, when I get out to my car I see her loading her kid and stuff into a nice SUV. Meanwhile I am still driving the same piece of shit car from college. I drove home feeling so crappy. She probably has a house and nice things. Why do some people get so much and others so little. To boot, she wasn't really a nice person when I knew her. Just another reminder of all the things I haven't got. By 28 I sure thought I would have a few more of my goals checked off...

When you have days like that, try to think of all the great things you do have that other people could be jealous over. You have a great marriage, a strong support system from your family, an incredible education and job and a great circle of friends. (At least I hope you think we're great!)

It's hard but when that green-eyed monster appears you have to find ways to kill it. And you never know about that girl -- she could have a horrible marriage, a husband she never sees and the new baby could belong to the mailman! LOL

((hugs))

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
