Description: 

I just don’t have that “mommy” gene.  The one that drives some women to channel their whole being and essence into their offspring.  They have blogs dedicated to their children.  They handcraft amazing and creative games and cards and decorations for their kid’s birthday parties.  They paint their baby’s walls with cutesy sayings and adorable characters.  They host themed play dates.  They sew costumes and make wacky hats for wacky hat day at school.  They take zillions of photos with their SLRs and then scrapbook every event of their child’s life, cutting out charming letters that spell out whimsical observations.  ”Kaden tasted strawberries for the first time today.  He said they tasted like sunshine.”
