Illustration for article titled Frustrating Family planning (life rant)

One 3 year old, 4 cats and a dog. That’s how many living things are in this house besides me and my wife. I’m perfectly content with that. I love my son and even though he’s tests my patience on a daily basis I wouldn’t trade him for the world. But lately my wife wants to add another.


We lost her mom to cancer back in June, we actually lost an unplanned pregnancy in August due to it being ectopic and her sister is pregnant with a baby girl. All of these have lead to my wife wanting a baby girl of our own. Which I’d be fine with if science was at a place where you could pick the gender, but it’s not. So I’m looking up vasectomy costs because the thought of having a second boy causes massive panic attacks. And I don’t know how to tell her that without her spiraling even further into the depression she’s already in. So I’m at a loss.

Anyway thanks for listening
