On various social networking sites parents proudly post pictures of their precious offspring. Mommy, Daddy and baby all smiling happily for the camera. Are they really that happy??
Husband thinks that all divorces are caused by children. (Wonder what that means for our parents who are still on thier first marriages and seemed to survive having us just fine?) While I admit that children add another layer of stress in a family, I don't think they on their own are enough to break a solid couple. I think divorce happens to couples who already were unstable or who go through more stresses than just being parents. Then again, maybe that's just what I want to believe. I don't want to believe that the happiest day of my life will the end of my marriage.
I can hardly stand to log on anymore. Everyone is pregnant. Everyone is happy. The babies are adorable. And I'm constantly reminded of what I might not have. Constant reminders of time marching on and eggs withering. Sure I might still be able to get pregnant at 40, but who wants (in a perfect world) to be 60 and attending their high school graduation?
