I spent the day my brother Patrick was born swimming. I don’t even remember if I even went to school for at least the roll call that day and was pulled out of class soon after. I was in elementary school. Later that day I was taken to the hospital.
The day Carrie was born I was turning my head every single time someone else came into the classroom/came over the intercom/rang the telephone/etc. to be pulled out of class because my mom had promised I would be. My stepfather’s parents had not taken me out of school that day, though. I’ve no idea why, and I remember my mom being a bit upset over it since Isaac had been taken out of school. They had, however, picked me up after school – they were first in line, too, and if you’ve ever picked ANY kid up from school, you know that line starts getting long at least an hour and a half to two hours before the school even lets out, which meant that they could have went into the office to take me out of class. That was seriously one of the longest days of my school life.
When Ruby was born, well… I was living at my mom’s again. I’d really rather not get into that too much.
I have no recollection of what I was doing when Isaac was born.
And today I’ll have a new brother. What fun, no? Kim and my dad are doing a Noah’s Ark theme for the nursery, and she’d said she liked the name Noah…
Noah’s a cute name, but I wonder what they’ll be pairing it with…
She’s keeping it a secret/going to just wait and see what name he looks like.
When/If I have a kid, I’ll keep a few names in mind, but for the most part it’ll be a secret, too. Not exactly for revenge, but you know… Just because… 😉
I think adopting would be easier for me, though. Pain-wise, health-wise and ability-wise. As a child I always wanted to adopt. ^^ However, I don’t want the ability to have children biologically to be taken from me in case I happen to change my mind and want to have a child or two biologically. I’ve been told chances of me being able to have children biologically speaking are slim. …That doesn’t mean I officially lack the ability of doing so just yet.
There’s a difference in being able to do something and choosing not to and not being able to do something and also not having the ability to choose to not do it.
