...in the midst of a lot of harsh realities...


this is my boy.

and even though the dreaded, 'H' word has been brought up by my doctor, and i'm scared and frustrated and hurt and jealous and seriously going out side my mind...

you don't need a uterus to be a mom.

you don't need a genetic link to be a mom.

you don't need ovaries or eggs or pregnancy or a birthing experience. 

you need a heart and a soul.  

boog reminds me daily.

i AM a mother.  

HIS mother.

worth it.

Gotta get rid of the utermarus to make room for those gigantic kahoonies you're sporting.

I wish I lived closer. We could have a hysterectomy party. Get a uterus shaped pinata, drink bloody mary's and decorate a tree with tampons.

I'm a jerk I know. But you laughed.

nope, you most definitely DO NOT need a uterus to be a mom. there are lots of people with all the right equipment that really shouldn't be parenting at all. YES all you do need is a strong heart and soul, and YOU'VE got it. so don't forget it. (i know this sucks coming from someone who's pregnant, but i really like you a lot and i had to comment!)

You can be my H buddy! Lol. It's been almost 2 years since my surgery and I am glad I'm not in constant pain anymore. In fact, my Hubby is the only 'fertile' one in the house. Both cats and our dog are neutered. He is the minority hahahahaha

Love it!

Harmony said...

I agree with Alecia! You are a mom and from what I can tell a dang good one at that! :)

Love you.

Really you deserve every good thing to come your way.

Darn it.

A uterus is an overrated organ. Having one, not having one? Doesn't mean anything.

You ARE a mom.

Love and hugs.

Can I have an invitation to the party? :)

No, but really. You're right on with your mindset. I don't need to tell you to stay strong. You ARE strong. More days than you know, you are MY strength. So thanks. :)

And no. A uterus is not a prerequisite to being a mother. If there's anything the past 2 years have taught me, it's that.

Jewls said...

You can have mine..it's pretty worthless. Couldn't agree more though, you don't need it to be a mom!

Crystal said...

Your an AWESOME MOM!!!!

Amen sister!

Beautifully said.

Well said. I hate having surgery for any reason, but I hope when it's all done you have energy and enjoy great health. Hopefully you won't miss it. (As for me, not having periods and not spending money on feminine supplies has been AWESOME!)
