All the single ladies . . . asking your married-with-kids friends this.
I bet lots of you didn’t think you’d be “here” at this place in your life. Maybe that means with a “surprise” baby or a home away from family. Maybe you never dreamed you’d marry someone like “Bob” and love him so much. Or find motherhood so difficult and so wordlessly wonderful. I certainly didn’t dream I’d be 41 and single with no kiddos. Not that I remember really dreaming of much; I’m a pretty present-reality kind of woman. But, now, with my eggs aging daily, I guess I did think I would be a mom. But that’s for another post.
What I really want to know is this, you married moms with kids in the home, what would you be doing if you were 41 and single. I mean, after the vacation with umbrellas in your drinks: What would you do with your life? No need-driven, 24/7 job as Mom-in-Chief. Where would you live? What career path would you choose? How would you spend your free time? With whom would you spend your time?
Please deal in reality, i.e., if you really can’t paint or sing, don’t suggest a job as an artist or on Broadway.
I really, really want to know. Post away.
