I know that most people don't mean anything by the things they say. They don't mean for it to burn...at least I hope they don't! :) It's just hard to swallow sometimes when you hear someone so flippantly throwing words around. Being flippant about parenthood - like it's the same for everyone. Bleh, just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Clif and I are parents. We have been for over a year now. No, we don't have a child here on earth... but we still have a daughter! So no...every parent hasn't done "this" at some time or another. The only thing we did was carry Lilly for nine months, give birth, say goodbye and bury her. That's it.
Sorry...heard this and it just really rubbed me the wrong way :) I'm good now...
