And the winners are...

Kris from Stone Cafe Creations and Shannon at Espinoza's Love!

They have both won a 16x20 poster print from that I am sure they will enjoy, as the both have such great photos on their blogs.

Feel free to pop on over and check both of those ladies out.

And, ladies, send me an email at parentingbydummies[at]gmail[dot]com, and we will hash out the details on how to claim your prize!

On to other things, then.

I just couldn't let this day go by without adding my two cents to the 66 year old pregnant chick story.

All I can say is WTH? As in, Why The Hell, would you even want to be pregnant at 66?

I know she feels young on the inside, and she is in great physical shape, yada, yada, yada.

Seriously, I was 22 when I got knocked up with #1, and I was tired, and surly, and hot, and fat the entire time.

And, now at the no-where-near-66-age-of-31, I am tired, and surly, and hot, and only slightly less fat.

And, while I may lament the fact that I am medically incapable of getting pregnant again because I desperately miss having (or the thought of having) a baby to hold, and nurse, and keep me up at night, I know that deep down, it was not meant to be.

I'm completely a to each her own type of gal, but I must admit, this dummy is baffled.

I just don't get it, but maybe that is because I've already been blessed with the "joy" of motherhood.

If nothing else, it's gotta be tougher to lose the baby weight, and get back in shape when everything is already starting to dip and scoot to new and exciting places.


In the words of a great Vulcan, live long and prosper.

There have been some recent grandma becoming mommy again stories in my city over the last couple of years. INSANE! That's all anyone needs to say about that. I'm not saying they are wrong, but I do wonder who is really going to raise their kids.

I can see that 100% of the people before me in the poll are all smart like me. Heck no! I think 40 is my personal limit, and even then that's really stretching it. I mean no offense to anyone who is 40 and up reading this--just for my own personal health history I would not want to even consider getting pregnant.

I started at 26 and finished up around 33, I had three in that timeframe. If I had my way (especially, with this perfect hind-sight you are privledged to have only when you are "old"), I would have started earlier and finished earlier.
One big advantage, you get great grandkids like #1, #2 and #3 while you are still young enough to enjoy them and them you. Love you guys.

Giving away two copies of the movie Extract starring Jason Bateman and Ben Affleck. Contest ends 4/2/10.
