Perfect Moment Monday

Moment #1: We are at a restaurant having lunch and our discussion goes towards a video game husband is playing. It is based in a medieval society. My husband is playing a woman character and it is at a critical stage where his character meets the queen and manipulates things to be behind the power of the throne. At one point he discusses how he had a member of his team (a man) marry the queen. And a discussion on why his character could not marry the queen ensued. And we explained one of the more obvious reasons why it was a hetro bias -- that in medieval times and especially for a royal family, one needed offspring and heirs. And, without skipping a beat, my son said “Oh, cuz they couldn’t do sperm donations back then.”

My son—an enlightened child because of infertility treatments…

Moment #2: I am starting to plan her 2nd birthday party. And while I will write tons and tons about the progress she is making and how wonderful she is (cuz it is all about her), tonight as I sit printing out the invites, I remember and feel a sense of pride. WE did this. We made it happen. We went against the odds (2% to have a child the “normal” way) and the odds of treatments (40%) and we have her. I am proud of that.

Those are just beautiful and your son's comment made me chuckle.
That is really cool your Dh is playing a female character in his game, it sounds also enlightened.

#1 gives me hope that we can raise our son to think outside the narrow worldview of our little town.

#2 gives me hope that we, too, can be on the other side of this secondary infertility someday.
