What better distraction could there be than a 3-month-old named Louis? I’m thinking Sandra Bullock is going to be way better off with a little baby than a big baby. I can’t think of a better replacement for Jessie James than Louis Bardo Bullock?
I remember holding my boys when they were newborns. It was soothing, all seemed right with the world. Imagine the comfort and self-soothing effect Louis will have on Sandra during this sad time in her life.
Sandra has a lot of love to give, plenty of time on her hands and a hell of a lot more resources than most single mothers. Some will say that a new baby while going through a divorce is added stress during an already stressful time.
I would disagree. While going through my own divorce, my children saved my sanity. Having to focus on them and consider their needs distracted me from my own problems.
Her response in this week’s interview with people magazine when asked about Jesse James and the Nazi photo tells me that Sandra may have made a bad choice in whom to marry….”The photo shocked me and made me sad,” Bullock tells People. “This was stupid, this was ignorant. Racism, anti-Semitism, sexism, homophobia, anything Nazi and a boatload of other things have no place in my life.” But she didn’t make a bad choice in deciding to become a single mom.
I love this! This is a woman who is afraid, sad and mothering a new baby on her own. Her self-esteem is high enough though that she is willing to face her fears alone rather than allow a “boatload of other things” in her life.
Sandra Bullock is better off financially that most of us single mothers but she has something we all can have that will get her through a hard time, she has backbone and convictions.
That is all any single mother needs when facing whatever life throws her way. Sandra and Louis, they are going to be just fine.
