I overheard a conversation that gave me hope.

I was at my nephews first birthday party this past weekend and while presents were being opened I overheard a conversation that made me smile and gave me hope.

My brothers friends were sitting together just chatting when I heard his one friend turn to his buddy and blurt out “so when are you having kids??” The friend, taken back started stuttering not knowing how to answer the question. Noticing this, one of the mothers turns around stating how rude and inappropriate that question is. She continued by stating that not everyone needs to live the same life and kids are not for everyone. She even went as far to say that if she didn’t accidentally get pregnant with her son, she would be childfree. Needless to say, the guy who originally asked the question apologized and said he was in the wrong.

As a childfree couple just observing, my husband and I were so happy to overhear this! It was a quick conversation but hopefully the lesson lives on.
