Went to a friend's wedding party last Saturday and as usual when I meet new people, they ask, "Do you have kids?"
I answered no. I didn't feel any stabs or anything, though. Nor did I feel any need to explain anything (like what I felt in previous events when the topic came up).
Another person said, "Not yet" and I just laughed.
I explained to another person who also said something like "maybe in the future then" that life without kids is fine. Thankfully she didn't say anything else about the topic and she let it go.
The wedding went great and I almost shed some tears during the first dance 'coz it took me right back to my own wedding day. No, we didn't have any first dance that day 'coz it's not common to have that kind of thing in Indonesia, but still I remember the sacredness, the importance, the beauty of the day. Dreamy sigh...
Below is a pic of the dining room where we had the party...
P.S. Just wanna write down this post to mark what happens to me and what I feel during specific moments in my IF survivor period.
