Thanks to those of you who suggested Whiny Wednesday topics. If there’s something we haven’t covered yet, feel free to drop me a line.
This week’s whiny topic is:
“This happened because I am not worthy of being a mother .”
I think this falls into the same category as “I must have done something to deserve this” and “God/the Universe/fate must have other plans for me.”
Have you had these thoughts? Did you believe them?
As always, other whines are welcome. It is Whiny Wednesday after all.

I’d like to whine about the old wives tale you hear at bridal showers ( I just went to a friend’s). It says that for every ribbon on the gifts that you cut, that’s a kid you’ll have.

Sometimes I watch the news and I see how terrible humans/society/global warming/social media etc. are. Then I tell myself that mother nature is doing me and the children I want so bad a favor by ending my line. One day one of my coworkers asked why I didn’t have children. I was having “one of those days” (you know the ones when you realize that you are definitely not pregnant AGAIN) and I blurted out “Because I Would Eat Them!” It was a little awkward.
My colleague just asked me if I would still be working here in 6 months from now…wink wink…. trying to ascertain if I’m pregnant. She keeps dropping not-so-subtle hints that I might be pregnant. NEWS FLASH: NOT
