How you know when you read too many blogs


I had a very involved dream last night about accidentally being at a party intended for A-list mommy bloggers. Dooce was there, and she was very stylish. Alice, from Finslippy, was very kind, as was Suburban Bliss' Melissa. I was super intimidated by Mighty Girl Maggie Mason. And I was really bummed that Eden from Fussy wasn't there, because at least she and I have dogs in common. Then they found out I don't have kids and kicked me out.

What do you make of that?


Your intimated by mothers and you don't think they'll except you in their world because you don't have children? You feel like an outsider looking in, a fake, an impostor.

Maybe you feel like you are not as worthy or special because you don't have children. Do you see being a mother as your ultimate in fulfillment?

Just some thoughts from someone in kind of the same place.

Also what do YOU think it means?

Strange dream. Hard to say what it might mean, perhaps you believe in your unconscience you can't hang out with women who are mothers because you aren't one?
I always get strange looks when I say this, but we had dogs before we had kids, and I find lots of similarities between raising toddlers and a spirited greyhound, lol. So there's enough you can say on a "parenting" subject, because a dog is on -about- the same level as a 2 yr old human. :-)

From Clare to here


I had a dream last night about my daughter. My daughter, who has never been born, or even conceived, or even really considered, and yet I could see her so clearly. She was maybe 3, with curly blonde hair. Skinny, gawky, but beautiful, and so smart. Her knee was skinned. I was wearing a suit in the dream, and I sat on the floor to play with her. We were in a room with good natural light and stacks of books. I could hear her laugh, and I could feel the love and the impatience I would have towards her.

Where is this coming from? Not only is it weird for me to think about having a kid, but it's doubly weird for me to think about a girl--when I do imagine this, I ALWAYS imagine a boy. But this wasn't like I was imagining, it was like I was remembering.


Was that child in the dream you?

Nope, at least not in any form that I recognized myself.

I have not-uncommon dreams about being pregnant, or having a new baby. And I have no intention or desire to conceive, not in the near future, maybe not ever. I think for me it's an anxiety dream, especially the pregnancy one, that's something to do with being afraid of not having control over my life. Not saying that's what it is for you! Just that in my case I think that the "meaning" of the dream is nothing to do with actual baby-thoughts at all, just a symbol of something else. So maybe your dreams have a meaning that's nothing to do with kids. That's just a completely random guess, of course!
