Fact #86: This is a big moment for me

I realized the other day that I could have a baby.

Just to be clear: I don't have a baby.

Also just to be clear: Seriously. No baby. Not here, not 'on the way'.

But what I realized is that if I did have a kid, I could handle it. I'd rise to the occasion. I'd make it work. Because I'm a smart, capable person. And I have love to give. And even though sometimes I feel like I can barely take care of myself, if some tiny person was relying on me I would do whatever it took to take care of them.

I've always been a little on the fence about whether or not to have kids. Wondering if I'd live up to the responsibility. Wondering if I'd be a good parent. But the truth is, I think I would.

So I guess now I have to decide if it's something I want.

And in the meantime, I'll just borrow other people's!

(I'm not sure what I'm reading here, but clearly
it's both shocking and fascinating.)

Til tomorrow.
