..And the news is?? We're not having one. Or two. Not now. Or ever. Since getting married, the ONE question on everyones minds seems to be "When are you having kids?" (good grief!)
When I was born, I was a very sick little baby. I had a 'knot' in my intestine, and had many serious surgeries at 3 weeks to to help me survive. As a result of complications with one of the surgeries, I can't have babies.(still get monthly gift tho, how pointless is that ?? LOL!) Jake knew this a long time ago, so it wasn't a surprise to him at the last minute or anything, don't worry.
YES, we know we can try adopting, or a surrogate. YES, we know we have options if we do decided to try & become parents. And YES, I am sick of answering questions about it. We are going to be happily married sans kids, just accept it. YES, people can do that! It's totally legal, and our choice. We have plenty of friends with little ones for those days that we want to punish ourselves (JK, guys!) Kids are great, and growing up the oldest of 3 kids, I don't feel like I 'missed out' on being maternal. I always have been.
We have our 2 dogs, Tao & Yukina AKA Fidget, and those are our kids. So, yes, we will we getting more dogs! (I have a list of dogs I want, WITH names, lol!)
..Just wanted to blog this, in hopes that's a few more times that I don't have to explain why no babies. Thanks for taking the time to read.
Have a great day, my lovelies! =]
