Moms And Dads — How Did You Know You Were Done Having Kids?

"You know you're done having babies when you hear a pregnancy announcement and you're relieved it isn't you."

Recently, we asked our readers to share the moment they knew they were ready for another kid, and the responses were totally relatable.

But then it occurred to us that parents who have decided they're finished having kids may have experienced a similar 'aha' moment.

You know you're done having babies when you hear a pregnancy announcement & you're relieved it isn't you. #babyfactoryisclosed #familyiscomplete #nomorekids #Congratulations #imgood

Maybe it was when you got a taste of what another one — or two — would be like, and you were overwhelmed.

I babysat two extra kids tonight. When they left my uterus burst into flames. #NOMOREKIDS

Or perhaps it was your little one's epic tantrum that convinced you to pack up shop.

My son cried for 20 mins BC I said to clean his room. 🤗 #nomorekids

Or maybe it was when you realized that parenthood is a dirtier job than you thought.
