CherryA:  what a coincidencE! Haha

when it comes down to it, the two can’t be compared. It’s two different kinds of love and responsibility. People need to stop comparing the two as if one is better than the other. 

Who cares if one views an animal as their child? It’s sad when a person has to shoot down that kind of love.

I get loving your pets (I’m a pet owner and a mom), but loving them “like children”, while eating other equally smart, loving animals, enabling atrocious factory farm practices at the same time is a bit messed up when you think about it.

CarolineLefe:  Thanks!  It’s by a brand called “Dog is Good” and the logo is a dog with a halo…I got it at Home Goods or Marshall’s, I think

I’ve been with my fiancé for almost 13 years, and while we just recently got engaged to “make it official” we have known for a long time we will be together forever.  Our dogs are absolutely our children, and not having a baby has been a conscious decision which has recently turned into a necessity due to some medical issues I have.  I am 100% happy and at peace with the fact that I will never be pregnant, but other people not so much.  As soon as we got engaged I started hearing comments from friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers, etc about how “it’s not too late” to have a baby (I’m 40, btw).  As if 1. It’s their business, and 2. This ring on my left hand suddenly gave my uterus a license to “do its job” and carry a child.  It’s annoying, to say the least.  I’m happy that my friends are happy with their choices to procreate, I wish more people would at least respect the choices that I have made and just be happy that I am happy.  As for anyone who feels the need to put down other people’s choices and lifestyles, I question how happy and fulfilled they really are.  Live and let live (if it’s not hurting someone else).

_chelsbelles:  You are very sweet. You don’t need to worry, you will love them differently — not less or more than each other. I have the same feeling about my cat. But I remind myself that I will always have loved her the longest, and it comforts me. Your heart hasn’t got a measurable capacity of love which you can reach the limit of — the more love in your life, the more easily even MORE love flows, like the continuous waves of the ocean. You seem like a lovely lady and I wish you the best 🙂

devi514:  Oh god, this is so annoying! Fortunately, I don’t have any friends that do this on my FB feed (or they wouldn’t be my friends for much longer) but it is so SUPER frustrating. The thing is, I’m not invalidating your feelings of being tired, stressed, annoyed, etc because you chose to have a child, please don’t invalidate my feelings because I am not choosing to have a child at this point. I used to work in retail too and the parents were the ones who would take the job and then immediately start asking for nearly every weekend or evening off “because they had kids”. You’re choosing to work in retail, and your time isn’t anymore important than mine, just because you have children. UGH!

you are my hero…. HATE the stupid stigma associated with marriage! OH! youre married so now start poppin’ em! Um no. 22 and engaged, cant see kids in my futute… but everyone says “ill change my mind.” Maybe you should have changed your mind when you had sex without being on birth control.
