Solo's tantrum

I recorded about 3o seconds of Solo’s 30 minute tantrum yesterday.  But when I tried to post it, it wouldn’t go.  And you should all thank me.  Because even 30 seconds can seem like a lifetime.  He wanted his play buddy, he wanted attention, he wanted my seat.  Eventually he wore himself out.  But it is hard to stay mad at a face like this.

Today is a whole new day.  Obviously, the morning walk is not always the best indicator of how the overall day is going to go. He is still asleep on the couch.   I walked both dogs around 2pm, just in time to beat the school buses.  And he still pitched a fit.  But it was at 6:15 instead of 4:15.

At least he ate breakfast and dinner.  I think I will spend some time looking for new dog toys and games while I am doing my volunteer cat duty at PetsMart tonight.

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.
