My Angel Assignment

1. Do you remember a particular incident or moment from your own childhood that has influenced the way you raise your offspring?
Um.....not really. Hold on, let me give this some more thought. Okay. Well, my father (my parents were divorced from when I was very, very young) had a lot of girlfriends. Let me rephrase. A lot of psycho girlfriends. Who weren't very nice to me, who hated me, in fact.
This made me promise myself that if things didn't work out with the father of my baby, the guy would have to be spectacular in order to be introduced to my kids. My kids would come before any man, and if they didn't like him, I would ditch him. No questions asked.
On the other hand, my dad came to every school play, prize-giving event, basically all of my school stuff. He was there without fail. This was very cool, and I plan to do the same for The Kid.
2. Have you started some kind of savings plan or investment thingy for when your kidlet(s) wants to go to college or varsity?
I did when I found out I was pregnant. Only I spent it this month. Will start it again soon. It wasn't that much, only a couple of grand, but still...
3. Do you think it’s possible to let go of “mommy guilt”, to forgive yourself and move on, to do better?
I have written about this before. The Kid is still very new, I haven't really made any major mistakes with him yet. But, like my mother always used to tell my sister "parenting is not a popularity contest. If you dont like the things I do...tough!"
4. How long after giving birth did you want to have sex?
About 2 weeks. I'd had a c-section, and didn't understand why I had to wait 6 weeks before having sex. But my libido is definitely much lower now. Poor Luke has to beg. A lot. Makes me feel bad, but sometimes I think - the point of sex is to make babies. We've done that, so now what's the point?
