To be or not to be... A mom!
Getting married, purchasing a house and a dog, having kids. Sound familiar? I've heard it hundreds of times. The ideal relationship paired with the picture perfect happily ever after. However, that is rarely the case. I found my perfect match, the main reason that made him the one was the fact that he did not want children. I was fortunate to have had a great childhood, but I never pictured my life with kids. I've always said, "I rather have a passport in my hand than a diaper bag."
Mr. Right and I were on the same page. We traveled, we purchased a house, and everything seemed to go as planned. To my surprise everything changed when I turned 30, I have been married for ten years (yes I married early lol) and my personal life was right where I pictured it to be. One morning I woke up and I felt weird, something was off and I had no clue what it was. I started to wonder how our baby would look. Will it have his eyes? My hair? Who's personality will be predominant? Always calling it instead of He or She.
Questions went on for weeks; I would first ignore them, then curiosity they will find its way back into my head. I kept asking myself, What is wrong with you? You do not like kids! Suddenly without noticing, I started to look for school information and uniforms. It took me almost two months to bring it up in a conversation to Mr. Right, to my surprise he was not opposed to the idea. He asked me to wait two more years to get everything settled and planned carefully for what it would be the most crucial decision of our life.
Two years later I was expecting a healthy baby. Wanting to have two girls I can honestly say that I am in love with my two beautiful boys. On the last note, when people ask me Can you picture your life without kids? I say yes I do. I don't think my life would have been incomplete without kids. Would I do it all over again? Absolutely!
