Two mommies are better than one!
Momlogic's Nancy: I like men. I like men a lot. And at some points in my life, it seems I've liked men even a bit too much ... this includes my husband, the father of my two children. Think about it, isn't liking men a bit too much what made us moms in the first place?
But every now and then, I have to admit that I find myself asking the million dollar question, "Why the hell couldn't I have just been a lesbian?" And then other times, this heterosexual 40-year-old finds herself dreaming, "Man, oh man, I really wish I were a lesbian."
Now, it's not like I think lesbians live these perfect lives or anything. My lesbian friends have their own bills to pay and problems to solve just like the rest of us. But even so, there have been so many times that my straight friends and I (all harried, time-strapped, stressed out working moms) all look at each other and wonder how much easier life would be if we could just live together and raise our children together. Think of it -- how freaking amazing would it be if there were two moms in your house instead of just one? That sounds like heaven to me.
Two moms would mean there would be another woman on hand who could help with things like scheduling playdates, schlepping the kids to their doctor appointments, weeding through the torrent of PTA emails, making sure the kids have a vegetable with every meal and figuring out what after school activities to sign the kids up for. But that's not all -- imagine having another woman in your house who would know what to do when your little one spikes a fever. Hell, how nice would it be just to have someone else in the house who could actually spot the fact that your child has a fever in the first place.
Now remember, I'm by no means a man basher, I happen to be married to a pretty wonderful one who is also a very hands on dad. But even so, I don't think he, or any other man I know has once stopped to realize that the kids have outgrown their shoes and it's time to shop for new ones.
So, while it seems men have a tendency to drool and fantasize about a little girl on girl action, so do I. But while their lesbian fantasies often involve hand jobs and rolling over to go to sleep, my version is all about a little hands on help -- so I can roll over and go to sleep.
