Um, I don't think so, Mom

Hello friends and faithful followers,

I apologize for my absence from you! I have had no inspiring thoughts to share with you. Well, I have something to share now. Whether it is inspiring or not, well, probably not... tehe

My mother told me a few days ago that she has always had this feeling that there was the "possibility of a third grandchild." She has had it since I was pregnant with Mr. Chaos. Now, Mr. Fantastic and I have said we are done at two. I told him if he wants more he is having them. That pretty much settled it. Both pregnancies were tough on me and I do not want to go through a third. Both of my kids were completely worth it. I just choose not to go through it again. I told God we had a deal--no more. I told a friend that I think I would feel like the universe took a cosmic dump on me if I got pregnant again. She found it hilarious and sad all at the same time. After I got past the initial shock I am sure happiness would follow, but I can tell you that would not be my first reaction to such a precious gift from the Lord another time around.

What do you think was the first thing I did when she told me this? I calmly opened my computer and started researching urologists (these are the people who do the snippy snippy for your husband). I found two that were close to us and wrote down their numbers. Neither one of them took our insurance when I called them the following day. So, I called my insurance company for who was in their network. The first people I called only did children, thank you very much oh, wise insurance referral person. That annoyed me. Moving on, I called the second and yes! they can get us in over Memorial Day weekend.

No, Mom, there is NOT the "possibility" of a third grandchild. I'm picking up my renewed BC this week. Maybe we'll adopt. I'm open to that as a "possibility." Right now, Mommy can't handle that--not any time soon anyway. And I'm trying to fit into my clothes again... You know, the whole point of this blog chronicling my journey from 214, right after Mr. Chaos 15 months ago, to 178 now and still going. Thanks for the motivation to make the snippy appointment, Mom. We're taking care of that ASAP.

Hope you can hear the sarcasm. I love my mom. She's one of my best friends. That's why I can poke fun. Hope you laughed.
Blessings,
R

  2. *lol* I swear my sister could have written this post! She, too, has 2 children and they are done, too. Her and my BIL looked into getting him snipped, but the doctor that he called said he was too young. :-/ Weird.

    Anyway, thank you for stopping by my blog and making my SITS day so wonderful! :)
