They're in and out of my work all day, everyday.
It feels like everyone I know or like is either pregnant or just had their bundle of cute.
Hello, they even have a movie dedicated to them that came out this weekend.
(Go see "Babies!")
Needless to say, I've caught "the" fever.
It's actually probably always been in me to some extent.
(When I was like, 10 years old I tried to convince my mom to adopt a baby and let it be mine. What a weirdo.)
But it is currently in full fledged action.
Honestly, I think I'm probably driving Josh crazy/scaring the pants off him.
Oh, and it definitely doesn't help matters that people seem to think that just because we're getting married, we're going to start having babies right away.
I've been asked about....ohhh, four or so times?...since Josh and I announced our engagment,
"And when are you going to have yourself one of those/these little guys?"
Quote accompanied with that googly-eyed look and goofy voice.
You know the one I'm talking about.
(Or, at least, I hope you do. Otherwise, that makes no sense.)
Like, "UM, I'M OBVIOUSLY GOING TO START TRYING ON MY WEDDING NIGHT, DUH."
No, thank you.
Josh and I have discussed, and the plan is to wait 3-4 years before all that begins.
The first chapter of our lives is dedicated to us.
We're going to be a bit selfish, and rightly so.
Lately, though, my mind/heart/whatever keeps telling me I want a baby.
Maybe it's just something in the atmosphere.
As I wrote that last sentence a thought and question popped into my head.
I've never in my life not wanted children. That's never even been a question, ever.
I don't think badly of women who don't want children, not at all.
It's just...such a foreign thing to me.
Did you always want children?
Are you going to have children?
Do you have children?
