I Don't Love Babies



A lot of girls see babies and are like, "Oh!!!! Baby!! Have to hold, have to kiss, have to squish!" It's as if they can't control themselves from going crazy over any baby - because it's just too cute.

I've never been like this.

Babies are just babies to me. 

And I've never felt the urge that I just had to have a baby.

Baby-crazy girl: "Don't you just want a kid?"

Me: "No... I think I'd prefer to get married, first."

For a while I thought I may have been weird as most girls love little kids. But my sisters are just like me in this.

Then I  thought the reason may have been partly because I have ten younger siblings and I'm just accustomed to babies and kids. I see and hold and kiss babies all the time. So, maybe another baby wasn't new to me. - Even though I was always excited for another baby sibling.

But then I saw other girls, part of large families also, that were obsessed with strange babies. And I was confused again.

It's not that I hate babies.

But I don't love every single one either.



In fact I think most look like ugly rats.



But I love certain kids. 



This little sister of mine is my buddy ;b
I like my siblings. 



I like my cousins.



3 active, fun little boys ;) 
 I like the kids I babysit. 



Mary's baby, Annalise. I get to see pictures of her almost every day!!! I get to got stay with them for three weeks this January. :)

Rashida's chunky baby, Ezzie. Just look at her smile! :D 
I like the kids of my friends. 




And there are a few other kids from families I know that I love.



But most kids are brats (demons). And their size or looks don't affect much in my mind.



You see, I like people for who they are. Regardless of age or size or looks.



 I don't have to cuddle every baby I see.





I don't want to be friends with every pretty girl.





I don't have to kiss every cute guy.


In fact, I definitely don't want to kiss every good looking guy.

That's just weird.

Imagine. Seriously!?

That's gross!


I like babies for what they mean to me. through the connection of their parents, or their nice attitude. 

Beyond that? I don't consider myself a baby lover.


Yes, I'm a people lover.



But I don't need to hug and kiss everybody, babies included.

  1. When you were 16 and first met baby Keziah, you kind of claimed her.... She said the other day that she needed you home.

  3. I'm not baby crazy either. Babies are cute but toddlers are more adorable. I'm not so quick about the idea about having kids (though I do want some). It kinda scares me and... I won't go too much into that *ahem*

    Yeah, kids can be awful. A lot of them look adorable but can be super annoying and disrespectful and could be bullying their classmates at school :(

    I agree on you with not wanting to kiss every cute guy. 1. Gross 2. Most of them are players/ginormous jerks 3. Personality matters WAY more. I've seen women who've suffered in their marriages after marrying handsome guys.

    Also, I really like the new blog design! But I miss the pink TT However, you do what you want, I'll just shut up.

    1. Toddlers are cuter? Lol... maybe... but they are more work, too ;) And I totally know what you mean about having kids. But I don't think we need to worry about it at this point... God will prepare us for whatever He has for us when THAT time comes.

      Lol!! This was a lot of satire of course... as I was in the mood for writing something funny, but I'm glad you agree with me there ;)

      Thanks!!! Still under work... but getting there. And I love the pink text too... still going back and forth whether to keep it or not. Such a hard decision ;/

  4. I was like that too. Still am. I love my babies and children and like others but I don’t feel the need to hold or kiss all of them. And that’s ok.

    1. That's awesome! I am starting to like babies more... but I still don't want to hold and kiss every one ;)

  5. Just read this ancient post. :) I was totally like this too, even down to being the oldest of a large family and always having babies around. I liked them, but never related to the way I saw many girls and women treating babies.

    Then I had one. No change.
    Then I had TWO.
    And bam! Something shifted. Okay, I still don't have to hold or touch every baby I see, but way deep inside, something melted that now continues to melt every time I see a newborn. Wow, infants are precious.

    And wow, life is weird.
    ;P

    1. This posts still gets a lot of views ... I love it, lol!

      But yes, I think I'll probably be the same when I have kids. Babies are precious, just as gollums ring, and life is weird, just like this post ;)

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish. I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am. But my perception  has changed with experience. It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own. But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish. I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural. Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream. " Mom ," I said. "He's drinking soda!"  Left to right, back row: Jonny, Jonathan (Dad). Front row: Jacob, Keturah, Rebekah (Mom), Jonah (on Mom's

Peace During Patience

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” - Philippians 4:6 My family and I were sitting around the breakfast table several months ago. Mom had just read this verse. One of the kids laughed incredulously, “What is it saying? Be careful for nothing – live recklessly?” “No,” I answered quickly. My tone was very matter-of-fact, blunt, as if I were all-knowing. “It means do not worry.” The kids all nodded among themselves and life continued on for them. But for me life paused at my words. I had heard this verse soooooooo many times. I had always known what it meant. But now? Now it really meant something . “Do not worry.” This path I've chosen. I can not see it. I can not feel it. I do not know where I am. I have chosen to follow God, and no other. But why did He hide the light from my eyes? I must take a step forward. But I do not want to. How long w

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello. My name is Greg.  I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes. "If only..." But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me. It is cold. My clothes are thin. My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance.  I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon.  They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know. It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me. As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted. Convicted, but not  guilty. Years.  68 years for standing against injustice. How many years have I sat in here? I have forgot. All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials). I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release.  {If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing} I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day. Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very p
