Adventures in Infertility #92

#92 What's Up With That?



In our town, on Halloween night, it was cold.  It was cold and pouring rain.  The kind of rain that produces yellows and oranges on the weather channel doppler radar.  Still, quite a few brave souls splashed around the neighborhood and trick-or-treated.

There were goblins and princesses, power rangers and witches, firemen, nurses, vampires and ghosts.

And then there were grown women.  Grown women trick-or-treating with their less than a year old babies AND NO OTHER CHILDREN.

Oh and it wasn't just one.  I counted 5. FIVE.

Five women with just their baby and no other children with or near them, not in a group of kids, not with an excuse they were collecting for another, older child who could actually eat candy.

Just them.
And their tiny babies.
And their terrible decision making.

That's right.  Grown, adult, women, football carrying their tiny babies under their arms (no strollers or extra blankets anywhere to be seen), umbrella in one hand and candy bucket - for who? - in their other fat hand.

Is this the new thing?  Endanger the health of your baby by dressing them up as a pumpkin and taking them out in the pouring rain so you can get free candy?

What is up with that??


*Laughter is the best medicine right?  Why not laugh at my infertility?!  I do not mean to offend with any of these posts, it is just a way to let go a little and see the humor in our situation. Please laugh with me!
