Being Mormon in Georgia

So...I had my three week post-baby check-up today. I was asked several times what my method of birth control was going to be. I kept saying, nothing. It was as if I was speaking to hard core "Zero Populationist". Yes, I know I can use condoms, yes I know about spermicide, yes, I know I'm insane if I want another child. For crying out loud---you work at an OB-GYN office--me having a baby keeps you in a job! Let me freakin' populate the world if I want too!!

For your own sanity, I'd hope you would use condoms for at least a month :) Just kidding. If you want to populate the world you go right ahead, more nieces and nephews for me to love on!!

I have always said I am going to make up a shirt that says YES They are ALL mine! and then on the back - You're not paying for them what do you care! I always get mixed results from people - it's funny because it must be a generational thing, because older people are always tell us how blessed we are and what a beautiful family we have.
