What do I know? I just spend too much time online.

After it became public knowledge that Jamie Lynn Spears was pregnant, I crafted a story idea on the effects of the announcement on tweens and what area educators planned to do about it and pitched it to the editor of our local newspaper. Right out of the gate, I was hit with the fact that in the previous year there were 7 middle school pregnancies at our area school. Let me say that again, SEVEN middleschooler's were with child in a top-rated school of choice in our safe, squeaky clean Dallas hamlet. It's flabbergasting to me even now.

When I was in middle school....uh....nu-huh. I don't know if I was even in the stadium, much less crossing home plate. And I was much more, shall we say athletic than I hope my girls to be. (In reality, I probably have selective memory.)

A few years ago, when Hazel still talked with a toddler's lisp, she asked me, "Mommy, how old are you when you can have a baby"

"Thirty" I replied, without missing a beat.

So this whole Sarah Palin is really Trig's grandmother...that's impossible because Bristol's knocked up now...business has about got me baffled. Not to mention the my water broke but I need to travel across country, past countless hospitals to birth a baby that doesn't appear on the hospital website delivered by a Doctor who has suddenly gone MIA.

I keep running over to here and here to get more.

I watch things like this:

Which has nothing really to do with the pregnancy, but is funny and follows the Obama model of children being off limits.

So I try to figure it all out and try to write or say something that will make sense to my kids...but I can't even make sense of it myself?

I mean seriously! Have you seen the pictures of Palin during her first pregnancy? But props to Mrs. G, whose response post is kind and poignant.

I'm going to go out on a limb and on the record and say that I do NOT think that Palin is Trig's mother, I think she is the grandmother. And I think that this "news" of Bristol's current pregnancy will be followed with a convenient miscarriage cover up.

But what do I know? I just spend alot of time doing online searches.

Still I'm going to have to go Miley with this one:

You have a four month old, a son going to war, a pregnant daughter and you want to be vice-president SAY WHAT?!?!

I am so struggling with this. I think a lot of the daily kos poster's evidence was, shall we say, circumstantial. But there was enough there to go hmm. I've also thought that there will be a convenient miscarriage (my god, I cannot believe I am typing that), and this is all to cover up questions about Trig.

And then I also think she has too many responsibilities to move across the country - heck, from alaska, halfway across the world - to become vice president the month her 17 year old daughter will give birth. (when is that wedding, anyway?) And then I look at my card carrying feminist credentials and wonder if we're all selling out womanhood by questioning a woman's ability to hold a job and raise a family. But...THIS job. It's not any job. And the needs of this family at this particular time. Maybe, just maybe, this is a good debate for our country to have. But probably not. Stupid McCain. Stupid, stupid pick.

But yet, there is something fishy about this whole thing. fishy fishy, fishy, and not good clean alaskan salmon fishy either.

great post, great points!

Whaaa!? This is the first I've heard of any of this! I'm shocked, awed, confused..the grandma? Why? How? I'm going there..and I was going to tell you I'm back..

I'm back.

I love that you're willing to talk about all this.. here in East Texas no one will even discuss it. They have this opinion "we have to back our girl-- and so what if her daughter is pregnant?" They don't want to listen to reason.

I'm so on the Grandma Train here. Maybe I'm wrong, but who gets on a plane leaking amniotic fluid. Seriously. I will miss you at our first MOM's night.
