Then I Grew Up

Written by Deborah Jordaan

Good day, beautiful souls. As usual, I hope you are well and being blessed every day. Today I am going to write about baby humans and baby animals, they don`t stay small – they grow up.

I wrote in a previous article about handbag dogs. To my horror, I got asked to babysit a handbag dog.

This is where my subject matter starts. We all love baby animals, puppies and kittens. Beware, people, they grow up and behave the way we program them. They get born all fluffy and cute and when they are big some humans either give them away or dump them. How disgusting. Imagine your mum gave birth to you and dumped you in the nearest bin when you start crawling and walking.

The human is strange, they love the idea of cuteness and when that idea is gone they get bored with the said animal.

Animals have feelings and as with our children no matter how old they get they will always need us and in return when the children are out of the home the dog or cat is your companion. They give you loyalty and love and in return, all they ask for is love, food and water and an occasional outfit.

As I said the human gets bored so when his child grows up he has to keep the child it`s not something he can dispose of. So if you are financially stable you get a nanny even though you may be a housewife, which is strange to me.

Is going to pilates and the mall more important than spending precious time with your child? Of course, some parents need help as they both work and have hectic lives, not all people can afford nannies and they have to depend on friends and family in their community. Yet still, they find time for their children.

Money can buy basically anything but it cant fix the emotional pain the animal is going through when you- the human dont want them anymore.

A child or animal behaviour is based on what they were taught at an early stage.

In general, human being is destructive and gets rid of what they dont need. Yes some people leave the children by their parents as its in their culture the elders take care of them. Each to his own philosophy.

Sometimes single parents need help plus they add animals to the mix, hell no. Life is busy enough, so when you bring any animal into your life make sure it`s not just temporary as the children and dog start forming a bond and they in turn protect the children and you.

Cuteness comes with a price. If it`s a woman, remember she gets old and wrinkly but so do you sir, you don’t stay Brad Pitt forever.

Nee boetie dis nie hoe die lewe loop nie

I am not wanting to insult anyone but hopefully shed some light on these situations.

I myself had my daughter live with family but that was due to my husband abusing me, but that`s a story for another day.

Stay warm and toasty, hopefully with a cup of milo and homemade biscuits.

Tot weer siens. Bly veilig en geseend.
