Meet Helen

For those of you that were trouble by my loss of George and Weezy and thought I would be despondent by their departure, I wanted to let you know that a new companion (of sorts) has presented itself to me.

Meet Helen.  I tried to make the picture too big and freak everyone out.  But she is substantial.  And has decided to park herself right at eye level outside my office window.

So no need to worry.  I am not alone.

And Tom is living on the gate to our fence, just a few feet to Helen’s right in this picture.

For those of you not getting the whole naming protocol that exists here, I suggest you brush up on your 1970’s television.

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.
