THE Best Birth Control . . .

Well, for me at least is having one child already!

Yep, I said it.

On my way home with Lil Love Bird
It's been about 7 months since my last post about how I have yet to feel urges to have baby #2 and after re-evaluating my feelings I still feel the same way. People ask me all the time, "Soooo when is baby #2 coming?" My response, "Not anytime soon!"

All around me I see baby #2s popping up and quite a few moms I know with children Nia's age already pregnant or who have already had a second. People would say to me before, "Oh just you wait and see, when Nia turns 18 months you're going to have a strong urge for #2." Well she's now 20 months old and nope, there is no such urge.

I used to not understand how people would be "so cruel" as to only have one child by choice, but now that I have Nia I completely understand! I even said to my mom once after having Nia, "How is our planet so populated???" LOL!

People would also say to me, "Oh you're going to miss being pregnant" and in no, way, shape or form have I found this to be true. I definitely prefer the 45 lbs lighter version of myself that I am now and LOVE LOVE LOVE fitting into tight skinny jeans, form fitting dresses and being light on my feet. Bloated ankles, a puffy face and the overall unsexiness I felt while pregnant just doesn't appeal to me (but I do have to say, I miss my pregnant booty!).

Don't get it twisted - I'm very happy to be mother to Nia and sometimes when I vent on Twitter it's just that - venting (usually about frustrations with Nia's inadequate sleep and how it impacts me building my business). I wouldn't have it any other way than to stay home with her. I'm sure my feelings on having #2 will change, but for now I'm perfectly happy with just my Nia. She fills my cup and it overflows and overflows and overflows!
