Congratulations to Amanda Soule from SouleMama and her family on their newest addition, Annabel and yet another beautiful homebirth. Whenever I read SouleMama I can’t help but get a hankering for the day when I will have a happy and creative gaggle of my own children with whom I can craft, learn, and live an exquisitely beautiful life. It’s impossible not to. However, I have to admit that my dream future looks like a combination of SouleMama’s Maine craftiness and the life of a handsome baba out in Bay area as chronicled at Lesbian Dad. Can’t you imagine it now? It would be beautiful.
All of that said, I can’t imagine having the time to be that organized about my life let alone the time or money to start a family in the foreseeable future. That’s why I’ve hatched my new master plan of “borrowing” my friends’ children when the need strikes me. I know they won’t mind. Plus, I’m not sure they have any choice in the matter.
