A Letter To My Ovaries

Dear Ovaries,
I usually do not write to my reproductive organs, but after this last appointment, the doctor said it couldn't hurt, so here goes.
You need to get off your butt (or butts) and start working. You have spent much too long just sitting around wasting time. Oh, sure, about five years ago you threw us a bone. Finally you grew some follicles, released an egg (after taking your own sweet time I might add) and you gave us our girl.

Don't get me wrong. She is our everything. We couldn't ask for a more special girl who makes us laugh, is so smart and has such an independent spirit. But, we want a sister or brother for her. Is that really too much to ask? I only need one. That is it...just ONE. I know what you are thinking. You are pissed off at me for all of those years of birth control pills that forced you to do your jobs. I can relate. I don't like being told what to do either. Well, you can only go so long being selfish. After this, you can retire. I don't care if you shrivel up into little raisins, head out to Florida or travel the world. Just give us this one more chance and you are free from our reins forever.
Take some cues from the organ about a foot away from you and have a heart. You could make some people very happy. You could be my hero!!!
With all my love and encouragement,
Me
