So, this weekend I talked to my mom. She’s got grandbaby rabies, and is fine with us adopting out of foster care (albeit slightly conflicted). Her attitude is that gay parents are better than no parents. But also, she feels that a foster care child may not be “good enough” or something, I don’t know, she’s racist and ableist — yet a rabid pro-lifer. She’s my mom and I still love her even if I think her head is all jumbled.
Latte said that if I carried, she kind of wouldn’t want me to breastfeed, which I sort of agree with. I work in a male-heavy industry, I’m always going to be the breadwinner, and if I were to carry, I’d like to have many more opportunities to bond with the baby than she’d get if we exclusively breastfed.
I had a migraine yesterday, but my new meds worked wonders. I was able to finish out my workday and not be utterly useless at home. Latte was a sweetie and insisted I not shovel. Also– we got a lot of snow and now it’s too cold for the dog park. Poor puppy. 😦
