It's as good a reason as any, maybe better than most

I've come up with a few borderline absurd reasons not to procreate again over the past few years, but I finally have a real one.

Evan has finally decided that he wants to eat his pizza by the slice like a big kid, which means that I no longer have to cut pieces of pizza into dozens of little bites before I serve them to either of my children. This may sound inconsequential, but trust me... given the number of times a month that pizza is served around here, it is no small thing.

My family is complete.

I've had moments like that, a relatively "empty" trunk for last weekend's trip among them. Somehow, I'm still not able to make the final proclamation. Glad you can!

That is definitely not a small thing. We eat pizza many, many times a month here too and I so look forward to the day of not having to pre-cut their slices.

Congratulations :)

At 45, I've found so many things over the years that have stirred my heart and made me wish we'd had more.

Well, can you teach Ben then? He still cuts SAM's pizza into tiny bits, for God's sake. I keep telling him "Honey, they have teeth, you know." That is how protective he is of his loved ones.

I know what you mean about being done. Julia is crawling. I was SO done with having to go over the floor with a microscope for choking hazards before putting the baby down to play -- or so I thought!

I am still not sure if I am done or not. I love my two boys and my family feels complete but I still would love to have a girl so I don't know. I am glad that you can make that decision.

We knew we were done the minute that last hpt came up + ! :) There is no one reason, of course, but sometimes, something just clicks and there's a YES, WE ARE DONE in something as small - or big! - as pizza cutting. Pizza cutting, fruit peeling, no-crust-please, that doesn't have onions in it does it... (*grin*)

I'm not sure we're done yet, but I am looking forward to Liam being able to handle whole slices of pizza. We just got the stage where he'll eat grilled cheese sandwiches cut into four triangles. YAY!
