Today is going to be awesome (at least for some of us). It is International Childfree Day. For all of my peeps without children, keep being awesome. Enjoy a drink or do anything you want to because we don't have children to deal with.
According to the International Childfree Day website, they have nominated a Childfree Man and a Childfree Woman of the year.
The Childfree Woman of the Year is Crystal Money:
She works with the Kennesaw State University and the Siegel Institute for Leadership, Ethics, and Character. She has been devoted to making a childfree lifestyle more socially acceptable. She fought with a doctor to get the sterilization procedure she wanted.
"Being childfree is such a monumental part of my life. What makes me a great candidate for the Childfree Woman of the Year is my perseverance in living my life the way I want, and breaking the chains of expectations coming from a rural North Georgia town. Since I turned 16 years old, my father has been asking me when I was going to give him his 'grandbabies,' and much to his dismay, I have always replied with 'never.'"
The Childfree Man of the Year is Vincent Ciaccio:
This cool dude just finished a dissertation on stereotypes regarding childfree people in comparison with parents. He has been on the radio, in magazines, and in newspapers talking about it. He also works with non-profits for veterans and for eye research.
Everyone, we can enjoy our childfree lives.
