Daily Mood Alert: Wed, Oct 5

This is late.  Maybe if I get back to a normal work schedule I will get better at doing these right at the end of the work day.

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.

  1. This is a great tool. If I had this I would put it on the fridge where my husband can see it when he gets home. LOL!

    By the way, love your blog name and concept. We’re still in the fence-sitting camp, but agree that justifying one’s choices for kids or no kids shouldn’t have to come up as often as it does. Or even just waiting to have them! I’m now of the opinion that if we end up having a kid someday, then cool, but if we don’t, I am okay with that, too.

    • Thanks for reading! And I do post the Mood Alerts where he can see them. Only if there is a big red flag for him though. I am tired of being made to feel like there is something wrong with me because there is no big urge to parent. I would give my cat a kidney or jump in front of a car for my dog, so I do feel like I have the nurturing/mothering gene. I just chose to use it in other ways.
