Idiocracy

Idiocracy

Did anyone ever see that movie Idiocracy that came out back in 2006? I did.

I don’t know if that’s a good thing. But anyway, I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately. Probably because I’m going through all this infertility crap.

Who knows.

Anyway, the premise of the movie is how all the intelligent people waited to get married and have kids for education and financial purposes. This resulted in infertility issues and for all the uneducated and poor having the kids…which results in a world full of stupid, or idiocracy, if you will.

Isn’t it funny how kind of true that is, though (oops- hope I’m not offending here)? But, really….why is there such an imbalance in life?

There are whole countries that are poor and without food, while others are rich and wasteful.

There are couples paying thousands for the chance at having just one healthy baby, while others have multiple unwanted pregnancies resulting in abortion, more poverty, or worse- abuse.

I just don’t understand. I guess this is what my mom meant when I used to shout at her that she was unfair and she would say, “Guess what? Life is unfair!”

Boy, was she right.

Life is unfair….

I hope I never forget that. I think it’s what keeps me grateful for what I do have.

I’ve made a promise to myself that every time my baby wakes me up in the middle of the night crying I’m going to thank God for that gift. I will never forget the grief and the emotions we’ve gone through to have a family.

So, I’m telling you now- in case I get so tired I forget to be grateful. Please remind me the promise I made to forever be grateful to have a crying baby (If I forget). Although, I hope I never complain for the gift I am about to receive.

  1. I loved that movie. Remind me never to water my grass with gatorade, okay?You’ll complain, though. The trick is to love them anyhow, which isn’t really a trick. PS – now that Spencer doesn’t wake up in the middle of the night, sometimes I get him up to snuggle when I can’t sleep. That’s not bad precedent, right? Love you!!

  2. Oh, you will complain but it will be without heat and you will be grateful that you can complain about it at all. I had some problems with both my pgs so I was cognizant of the fact that I could have lost both of them.Your mother was right, Life isn’t fair. Some are luckier than others regardless if they deserve it or not. Hang in there, no matter what because of this experience, you will always treasure your child for the blessing it is .
