She told me that she decided that that was silly, she could have a Waffle Maker if she wanted to! She did not need to be married, or wait to be married to get one of her own. I agreed with her. (She got one and is quite happy, I am happy to report!)
This friend of mine (who is younger than I) suggested that I think about doing the same. I told her that I've been the "Hope Chest" route, and while it is fun at the time, I found it to be kind of sad...so I have given away some of my things. There are many things I decided to start using now because I want to enjoy them, life's too short!
I did not really think much more about it, 'til we went to ME's house for dinner....every time I see my "nephew" Charlie's toy Sophie, I think "I want one!...when I have kids I am going to get one!" (I first saw her in the Magic Cabin catalog, YEARS ago). But this time, my other friend's words came to mind, and I said "I don't have to have children in order to have my own Sophie!" (I know, there is no guarantee that I will have children)...later on, I was going to chicken out, but Mom encouraged me not to. I am so glad that I did not! =) Thanks Mom!
Love at first sight:
