Yup — I’m a Mom

Things I never did until I became a mom:

1) Have life insurance that cost more than the “free because it’s just to pay for my funeral” that came with my paycheck.

2) Have a will, making sure that it was witnessed and signed (which I just did yesterday evening).

3) Wake up by 7:30 am on the weekends.

Noticed that the two out of the three have to do with my mortality?  Yeah — I noticed that too.  Something about “thinking past one’s own lifetime” I suppose.  Just this past couple of days, looking at Daniel mess with his new laptop (YES, the Hubby and I got him his own laptop: a cheapy netbook from Fry’s)… what was I saying?

Oh, yes — seeing Daniel with his laptop, I wonder what he’ll be like when he reaches my age (I’ll be 38 next month), especially what his world will be like.  That would be — numm dee numm dee numm math — the year 2045.

WHOA.

Let me just take that thought right in and let it settle down a bit.

WHOAAAA…

… well, all I can say is, if I’m still having to wake up by 7:30am on the weekends, there have damn well be a FLYING CAR in my driveway.

Okay — off to bed.

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
