"You need to have another baby"

I'm a mom of one, and I'm done. I've been done. My husband has had a vasectomy. We do not want more.

My mother refuses to accept that. When we had our son, we did not live close to her so she wasn't able to see him much. He's not very close to her. She really doesn't try, she wants to do things he is absolutely not interested in and refuses to come to his sports events, things like that.

She keeps telling me I have to have another child. She's never approved of me having just one child. She knows it isn't a possibility, even if we wanted to, so she's started bringing over pamphlets from sperm banks.

I don't know what else I can do to get it through to her. I've told her. I've emailed her. My husband has told her. And yet, every single time we see her or I talk to her on the phone, she tells me I need to have another child.

It's to the point where I just want to cut her out. I'm so over dealing with her crap and her demands.

I just don't get how people can't mind their business and keep their nose out of your uterus.

I think you need to tell her that her not dropping the subject is going to cause you to drop her. Remind her she choose how man kids she had.

I have! She doesn't seem to understand that. She's also never been satisfied with having only two kids, she tried for years after she had me (I'm the youngest) to have more, and it didn't work.

I'd tell her if she wants another baby so badly, have it herself

I doubt it. He's a teenager now, and she's only getting worse, not better.

She tried for years to have more, wasn't able to. Otherwise, I'm sure I'd have a houseful of younger siblings.
