Provisional Membership

I am currently a provisional member in a club. It’s one with a long family tradition in *every* family, so you’d think maybe anyone could get in. You’d be wrong. No men allowed! Although there is a Man’s Auxillary. After that, the membership criteria can get a bit funny.

At one end are women desperate to get in, filling in forms, jumping through hoops, dieting, visiting doctors, yelling at their partners that it is their fault. There are also those who sadly, may have had club membership forced upon them. As well as teenage girls who carelessly applied, some who regret it. However, it’s a bit like certain religious organisations, once you join this club, you’re a member for life.

I am talking about that great sorority, Motherhood.

As stated above, I’m only a provisional member, I don’t have that symbol of full Mother status, namely a child. I do however, have a steadily ballooning middle section. It’s not that impressive yet, I mean, it feels huge to me, because my tummy has never been this big, but objectively, I looked at myself sideways in a mirror, and it isn’t that big. Nevertheless, it’s a sign that (all going well, fingers crossed and not even truly daring to think of the alternative) I shall be a mother before the year is out. Preferably before Christmas.

    and your husband is joining his own auxiliary club. Which gets less funding and recognition, but is equally important. although it has a less intense induction ritual.

    so far, this club seems pretty awesome.

    can’t wait to meet your bubba!!

    btw, i meant to say – feel free to give my email addy to your mate, H. must be tough having given birth so far ahead of the rest of her antenatal group.

    Welcome to the only club where you’ll ever feed someone vile orange penicillin mixed with easiyo berry syrup and brown sugar with a chocolate chaser… and desperately will them to eat every drop…

    Penicillin is all gone now… but tell E that he should pre-taste all meds so he can warn parents when he’s prescribing them to children!!!
