Motherhood

I’ll be a mother some day, I said

He said, You’ll need a man for that.

I replied,

I didn’t say I wanted to be pregnant.
I said I wanted to be a mother.
You don’t need anybody but a child for that.

  1. hmm do you think the child you need to become a mother, needs a father?

    ramblers last idea: Wisdom from a TV show-3

  2. lol cool! i even agree on that! 😀

  3. I so agree with that. Have had that thought for long. People, always, only see what they wanna see. 🙂

  4. I like muchly the template to the old blog. This one is nice, too.

  5. That child could be him as well

  6. LMAO.. congrats on moving XX to its home 🙂

  7. @ aparna: Thengyu!

    @ rambler: I didn’t quite get that. I’d guess every child needs both a mother and a father. In the context of my post women have been playing both roles in some cases for far longer than men have now.
