This baby fever phenomenon...I don't just understand it. A lot of the people I know have children already. So, for me, that's reason enough not to fall into the baby fever trap lol. But then its like, for them, baby fever is activated when they see a newborn/infant. Bruh. The only time that baby fever bull hits me is when I see a well behaved, adorable looking toddler. Not a 5 month old or a 5 year old. My ideal child is a potty trained 2 1/2 year old with some common sense beyond their young age. Despite my rapid aging, there is still nothing (well, not much at least) appealing to me about changing diapers, and spit up, and lugging around cumbersome strollers and diaper bags. I don't even feel comfortable watching someone else hold a small baby, let alone doing it myself. But every now and then when I see a cutesy-wootsey little kid, the vapors take over and I think, aww I want one. The thought usually only lasts a few seconds before the rational part of my brain says, Jen, abeg- get your life!
I shoulda been a dude.
I hope whomever I marry is cool with adoption.
Sidenote: So are we all up to speed on those leaked untouched photos of Beyoncé? (wow, my computer auto-corrected my spelling of Beyoncé and put the little accent over the second e. That is crazy). As a rational and sane person, of course I already assumed that photo-ready Bey and real life Bey didn't look 100% alike but I guess this was a wake up call to some of the more gullible viewing public out there. Personally, the only thing I got from the photos is that, as I've always believed, she probably is a touch older than what she says she is. Bey claims she was born in '81. My older sister was born in '82. I remember when Destiny's Child first came out and believe me, she did not look like she was the same age as my sister! Not by a long shot. (Please shield me from any members of the BeyHive for saying so. I mean no offense! lol)
