I didn't intend that all feminists see this (superwoman) as them.* There are women out there who do not understand that to be a strong woman, you must have a support system, and don't have to be all things to all people.* I find this to be a by-product of people who don't understand the initial intentions of feminism, and are the ones who frustrate me.[/b]
Oh girl - you and I are SO much on the same page here.. I'm just in the middle of reading a book about how this applies to our society in general. I'd love to discuss this more - if anyone wants to PM me or whatever. I'm there!
<!--QuoteBegin-Toban@Sep 30 2005, 06:32 PM Believe me, I was the first one in my class as a student to put up her hand when the principal asked for 2 "strong boys" to help him.* I also would point out to him that I was stronger than most of the boys in the class.* Hee Hee.* I was a bit of a trouble maker, but for the right reason.
Originally posted by Toban@Sep 30 2005, 06:32 PM Thank you for the olive branch.* I was upset for a couple of days about this (very hormonal and sleep deprived right now).* I hope that we can be a part of each other's support systems.
I'm so sorry I contributed to your stress. Between the hormones and sleep, I should be way more supportive... I don't want to be "that" person here or ever. I'm glad you're giving me an opportunity to show you that I do want to be part of the solution. Thank you.
I was 20 when ds was concieved and 21 when I had him. I was 22 when dd was concieved and 23 when I had her. Both were planned - dh and I wanted kids right away , nice and early, since he retires in 14 years, then the kids will be grown up more (dh is 24, not that he's old or anything, lol - military you can retire after 20 years service)

Originally posted by babydahl@Sep 23 2005, 11:47 PM I'm 24 now and that's how old I'll be when the baby arrives. We planned it, although we didn't think I'd get pregnant after being off the pill for only 7 days!!*
haha thats funny, cause thats exectly what happend with me, i stopped my pill got my period and conceived right after....
Got married couple weeks after my 21st birthday, and when our baby arrives in feb i'll be 22. we didn't think we'd conceive so quickly but it was great. Can't wait to hold our lil boy. I've always wanted to get married and have babies, i guess its cause i come from a big family ( i'm the oldest of 7) and my mom is the 3rd of 7 * thats just from my grandmom and grandfather, my grandfather had another son with wife#2 and 6 more kids with wife number 3 ( the last 6 were born when he was in his 50's or so) but yeah having a big family helps a lot, i know what to expect, i've taken care of more kids than most 21 year olds.
sorry keep blabbing, just wanted to say wouldn't have done anything diff....
