The re-election of President Obama wasn’t the only big decision being made this year. Another big decision, though slightly less impactful for the world, was the decision to go for it with Choice Mommmyhood. That’s right my friends, this single lady is going to (try) to have herself a little bambino.
That’s right! We’re turkey baster-styling it up in here. The doctors have been consulted, the family has been put on notice and the date of the diddy is set…
In all seriousness, I did not come to this decision lightly. You’re seeing the outcome of several years’ worth of deep emotional thought, consideration and planning. This is something I’ve been considering for about 3 years now and have been actively strategizing and planning for over a year. It all started when my biological clock went from monotonously ticking to buzzing so loudly that we could hear it, literally, vibrating in our ears every moment of the day.
It’s not a decision I take lightly. I always thought I’d do this the traditional way. Daddy + Mommy = Baby and to be honest it’s still very difficult for me to qualify my true emotions around that missing piece of the puzzle, but I’m so grateful to live in a world where it is becoming more and more acceptable to do things in a more non-traditional way. Welcome to the new modern family. I realize that this will change my life. This will change everything about the way I live. The way I work. The way I date…or even if I ever date again. Life as I currently know it will alter on every imaginable and unimaginable level. This. Changes. Everything.
But, change is good. Change is welcome. I’m ready for things to change.
