Even earlier then that I was babysitting. Most gals do this at age 12ish so they can earn some spending money. I done this to learn. It was a course to me. I was a sponge soaking up diapering tips, nursing or bottle feeding, best nap times, best brand of wipes,soaps and foods. I wanted a baby so bad. I could not wait to be a Mommy.
Before this, I remember sitting on the porch of the playhouse Daddy had built me and rocking a baby. I was around six. I was pretending to be nursing this baby. (let the record show, I did nurse all of my babies!)
At age 3ish is when my plan was set to motion. I was sitting at a teeny tiny piano holding one of my hundred baby dolls. I had baby's that cried, sucked a bottle, peed, felt warm if you filled them with hot water, ect. I had just saw a commercial for a baby on TV and was planning my approach with Daddy. Everything had to be okayed by Daddy. I was a nervous wreck because Daddy wasn't easily convinced. Those of you who know him know that hes a very big, stern man. He scared me. But, I was gonna ask for this baby anyway.
