Interview With

Fooled you!

No interview today. Instead, if you are interested in reading an interview you can read some of my past ones.

A Quiverful family

NOT a quiverful family (Be sure to read the lively, ongoing discussion on this subject.)

A mom who wants more children (but whose husband does not)

A foster carer

A previous foster child

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for new interviews. Lined up is a social worker who deals with the mentally ill and the homeless population. An interview with the speaker and writer Jen Hatmaker. And an interview with a mom who has had several miscarriages.

If you would like to be interviewed for my Friday Interview With post, and you have an interesting story to share, or a differing viewpoint, please email me or leave a comment. I would love to hear from you.

I read the one about a mom who wants more children because I can relate. I've never had a child and it's not that I necessarily want just hurts that my boyfriend doesn't want one with me. I try not to take it personal. I guess it's an inborn biological thing that I feel like he thinks I wouldn't be a good enough mother, when I know it's that he just feels like he's at an age now (44) where starting over is daunting, since his daughter is 9.

Thanks for coming by Sweeter Living. I do love those clothes from Room seven too... and I bet they are expensive. But hey, it's free to look! And I can always drop by H&M and find something that looks pretty cool there...

I do hope you'll have a great weekend!

I have to tell you thank you. I was really really ready for the worst possible comments from people. The example of a horrendous car accident comes to mind: it's there and you don't want to see it but you just can't make yourself look away. That's how it was... I just couldn't make myself post again but I kept checking every day for a comment that would knock me off my feet with it's anger.

Not what I got though. I got two comments, both full of understanding, and I just have to say thank you. Thank you for understanding what I feel, because no one else seems to. Even my best friends doesn't get it (she can't figure out why I just don't lie to him and get it over with, not the best influence, but then, she's preggers anyway...), and all my other friends either don't want children yet, or have children they weren't ready for. Thank you, as well, for giving me the courage to talk to him about it, one more time. To lay out exactly what it will take and how much love and time and effort I'll put in so that he doesn't have to worry...

And thank you for telling me that it's okay to feel this way. No one else has said that, and I didn't realize until I heard it from you that I needed, really needed, to hear it.
