Regarding: Baseball

Just to break up the week of tennis at the Winston-Salem Open (more posts and pictures on that to come!), we decided to take in a minor league baseball game.  The Greensboro Grasshoppers (no, I am not kidding) are our local Single-A Florida Marlins affiliate.  Yes, Single-A baseball.  Quite a treat.  The stadium is very nice and the poor kids play hard for the little they get in return.

We do have one other special feature to the Hoppers games and that would be our bat dogs, Yogi Berra and Miss Babe Ruth.  The pick up the bats after a hit, they bring fresh balls to the umpire and even deliver a cold bottle of water from time to time.   Yogi once even made Sports Illustrated for being ejected from the game for taking a crap on the field.  We were quite proud!  You can read more about them here.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
