What's with the big tummies

So... what's with all the pregnant women?

I went to the mall this weekend and had that old thought "it must be in the water". About every 30 minutes I saw another pregnant woman. It's true... perhaps there was one or two that I saw previously, but not many were duplicates.

There are two women at work who are pregnant and two more who are actively trying.

So I have to ask the question: why now? My boyfriend tells me people were bored and cold during the winter and that's why there are so many. But still... why now?

Shouldn't people be more concerned about bringing a child into the world during all this "turmoil" and "horrible times"? Perhaps people are more confident in our country and how safe it is than we are lead to believe from the press and politicians. Every day I hear someone tell me how worried people are and how against the war they are and how much they hate the president.. etc. etc. etc.

If I were worried, I would not have a baby... not now. If I hated my country, I would not want to bring another person into it. If I were against my government, I would not want to subject my child to it's rule.

No... I think those people who are feeling confident in our country and in our military are the ones having children... and man... there are lots of them.

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
