Hello Beauties,

Tomorrow morning, very early in the morning, I willing end my ability to have children naturally.  Only a few people know that I'm doing this and there's a good reason for that.  Some people do not agree with my choice and I really don't care, but it still makes me feel odd when people who do not really understand why I'm doing this say:

"Oh no, you're too young!"


"Please reconsider"

You guys get the point.  I'm a little nervous about my surgery, but not because I'm unsure of what I'm getting ready to have done to my body.  I just don't like the idea of being put to sleep and sliced open.  (FYI: I'm not being sliced open; just tiny incisions on my lower abdomen)

So here's why I'm doing this and please do not judge me.  

  1. My son is enough for me.  I don't have the desire to have another child.
  2. I never want to pregnant again.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed my pregnancy.  I didn't have any complications and my delivery and recover all went well.  I've had the experience and one time is all I need.
  3. I'm selfish (or at least this is what others describe what I'm about to say): I love having time to myself, I enjoy spending the money I earn on me, and I miss the days when I could just get up and go without a care in the world.  This is something that you lose for a while when you have children. Do I enjoy time with my son, of course! I love him to death.  I've always been the type of person that needs to have that time alone and that is rare when children are involved.
  4. My current relationship includes kids that are not mines.  As a teacher, after dealing with kids all day and then coming home to a similar situation, I've realize that I just don't have the patience to mental deal with more than one child of my own.  MLH is a ball of energy! He keeps me well entertained. :)
  5. Mothers ended up having the responsibility of raising kids fall on them: This is my perception.  I feel that the daily care of MLH mainly falls on me and it has been said that's what a mother's suppose to do and I just can't get with that notion.  Raising a child should be EQUAL for both parents.  Our world still thinks this job is for women.
  6. The thought of having another child freaks me out! I went through postpartum and it's not fun!

I'm happy with the decision that I've made and I find it slightly bothersome when others try to make me feel as if I'm doing something wrong.  If it's great for another woman to decide to have 5, 6, 7, 8 kids, then it's great for me to have one and done!
