I have gone on record noting that my baby days are behind me. But every once in awhile, I get the familiar twinge of baby-itis, especially when I see a cute little baby, or one of my friends or relatives is expecting. What’s not to love about a new bundle of joy?
A few days ago, actress, television personality, reality star and the other half of the fabulous Tia and Tamera combo tweeted a photo of her growing baby bump. Tamera announced a few months ago that she was pregnant with her first child, which we now know is a boy. Her twin sister, Tia Mowry Hardict gave birth to her son, Cree, last year, and it was documented on the first season of their successful reality show, Tia and Tamera. Their second season began earlier this week on the Style Network.
Seeing the tweet of Tamera resplendent in all of her baby glory, glowing, and fabulous, made me feel a twinge of the baby-itis. At 36, I am not too over the hill to have a little one. But it may be a little awkward since I have a 18 year old who just graduated from high school and an 8 year old. Starting over again with a little baby isn’t something that I want to do—or is it? Last year, I even blogged about my wanting to possibly have another baby.
Of course, celebrities make having a baby looks so fabulous—and the rest of us know that isn’t the case. Most of us don’t have nannies, personal chefs, assistants, personal trainers, and all of the other fixins to make motherhood look so effortless and glamorous. And yet, we manage to do it just fine without the all of the bells and whistles.
So, yes I have baby fever—but I am sure it will be short lived. With all of the traveling that I do, as well as the hectic schedule I maintain, I don’t know how a baby would fit into all of that.
I do congratulate Tamera on her pregnancy and wish her and her husband the best. Motherhood is an amazing gift and blessing.
