SNIP! SNIP! SNIP! (Part 2)

In my head I know two children is enough.  In my heart I get a little sad. 

I am a little sad that I won't get to experience the excitement of taking a home pregnancy test again.  I'm sad that I won't get to experience the excitement of the first OB appointment.  I'm sad that I won't get another first ultrasound and the nervous anticipation of seeing the heartbeat.  I'm sad that I won't get the excitement of having an ultrasound at 20 weeks to find out the sex.  I won't get to pick out names again.  I won't get to experience seeing my newborn baby for the first time.  I must admit I'd like to know what baby number 3 would look like.

I am grateful that I was able to experience pregnancy and childbirth. I am absolutely positively, unbelievably thankful for my sons.  They are amazing!  They make my heart smile every moment.  It's just that the chapter of childbearing has come to a close.  I look forward to all the new chapters (and challenges) of parenting.
