I don’t know what I want for Mother’s Day, but I do know what I don’t want.
I don’t want to have people asking me when I’m having children.
I don’t want to have people imply that “I’m next”, or that I deserve credit on this day because as a woman with a uterus, it will be “up for rent” eventually.
I don’t want to be sitting in church enjoying my friends’ company and have a whole bunch of people constantly dribble through like a production line over my friends’ babies. Thanks for making the emptiness so apparent, even if it is only apparent to me.
I think I want to be left alone this Mother’s Day. That way I can continue to be happy with my husband, and not be set off by anything!
