I Do Not Have Baby Fever, I Just Love Babies

I Do Not Have Baby Fever, I Just Love Babies

If you need me, I'm always happy to babysit!

Some people get joy and happiness out of a sport they play or watch, some also get joy out of cute dogs who show unconditional love. For some, some get joy out of babies. Yes, the tiny human beings that scream and sleep and poop all the time. In today's society, having a love of babies is seen as you're thinking (and possibly ready) to have a baby.

Yes, I love babies but no, I'm not ready to have one of my own.

Some people don't get the hype about babies! But for us baby lovers, the joy we get is from their cute, delicate faces that may sleep all the time but they're still and sweet. When they are awake, they laugh and smile with all the innocence in the world. They may cry sometimes but even their cry is cute!

Sometimes on Facebook, I find a cute video of a baby laughing and it just makes my day! Or have you seen the dad beatboxing to his baby boy and he starts jamming along with him? That video makes my heart so happy!

What I love to see compilations of pregnancy reveals to family members. I've seen the videos of husbands finding out they're going to be fathers. Some look shocked, some start crying of happiness, I've seen a combination of both! I've seen extended family members scream and cry for their relatives making my heart warm. I've seen parents tell their kids and their reactions are always funny. Whether they are shocked or sad, it's always fun to see how people will react.

I know parents out there reading this are probably thinking, "They may be cute now, but just wait until you have one." Well, the contrary to what you may think, I will wait to have one. I am not looking to pop out a baby right now (because I am absolutely not). I am a woman who is pursuing to get a college education. I have plans to become a professional in my career. Although children are a gift, this is a present I am willing to wait for.

I do want to be a mom one day. I want to be proud of my little boy or girl in whatever they do in life. I want to love them unconditionally and I want them to succeed in whatever they decide to pursue. I want to be there for them no matter. I know parenthood is far from easy, but I hope one day I will be ready to take on that huge responsibility.

I am twenty years old. I am still learning how to take care of myself. I am nowhere ready to take care of another human being. Someone I would have to be responsible for. Until I find the man I am ready to spend the rest of my life with and financially and mentally ready for a child, I would be happy to babysit!

I am excited about the future and what it holds for me, but in the next five years, I do not see it being with kids.

I do see a professionally developed woman who is working a job she loves, a husband who she loves just as much and has a plan to continue to grow as a human being. I love kids and I hope in the next ten years, I will have a little one to take care of. Until then, I will admire from afar and stick to the cute videos.

To The Grandmothers Who Made Us The Women We Are Today

Sincerely, the loving granddaughters.

The relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter is something so uniquely special and something to be treasured forever.

Your grandma loves you like you are her own daughter and adores you no matter what. She is the first person you run to when you have a problem with your parents and she never fails to grace you with the most comforting advice.

She may be guilty of spoiling you rotten but still makes sure to stress the importance of being thankful and kind.

Your grandma has most likely lived through every obstacle that you are experiencing now as a young adult and always knows just exactly what to say.

She grew up in another generation where things were probably much harder for young women than they are today.

She is a walking example of perseverance, strength, and grace who you aim to be like someday.

Your grandma teaches you the lessons she had to learn the hard way because she does not want you to make the same mistakes she did when she was growing up.

Her hugs never fail to warm your heart, her smile never fails to make you smile, and her laugh never fails to brighten your day.

She inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

You only hope that one day you can be the mother and grandmother she was to you.

A piece of girl’s heart will forever belong to her grandma that no one could ever replace.

She is the matriarch of your family and is the glue that holds you all together.

Grandmothers play such an important role in helping their granddaughters to grow into strong, intelligent, kind women.

She teaches you how to love and how to forgive.

Without the unconditional love of your grandma, you would not be the woman you are today.

To all of the grandmothers out there, thank you for being you.

Poetry on Odyssey: Broken Girl

He held her up


and then one day, she stopped pursuing the things of this world

she picked up God's armor

prepared herself with the spirit's sword

and from then on, God never let go of her

she stumbled often

He held her up

sometimes she doubted

He taught her to trust

she would stress over how to win the battles

He would reassure her that peace would soon be restored

while she was fretting over those small battles,

He'd already won the war

through every hardship he was with her

whenever she felt alone, he reminded her that she was not

whenever she began trusting in herself, He reminded her to surrender

a love as great as the Lord's could never be bought

she deserved no grace at all

but he blessed her beyond compare

He always listened when she called

lifted her burdens when she cast her cares

she does the best she can to devote her life to Him

and though she falls short of his glory

he loves her and sees beauty when all she sees is a girl who's broken

He keeps her going because His mercies are new every morning
