I left a comment the other day on an article she blogged about regarding people without children being happier. She commented back on my comment and asked what I should be called since I'm a KuKd-er but I also now have kids. I was going to respond back KuKdKo(ut) but stopped myself because I thought maybe that would hurt her feelings. Who am I to joke about being Knocked Out when I'm the lucky one who's got the kids now. Instead I didn't respond.
It got me thinking - do I really belong in the same group of KuKd-ers that don't have kids? While I did go through my own losses and they were the most difficult things I've experienced, they really don't compare with some of the other women I know, and I'm fortunate enough to have my kids now and will never have to wonder what it would have been like to never have them. On the other hand I believe when women go through a loss they have a greater respect for each other and I have a feeling everyone is welcome.
We all see things differently and can't walk in others shoes I guess.
