OSB - Week 6 - OH baby
Ok ok, I was a slacker. My mother-in-law made chocolate chip oatmeal chocolates, my favorite. The uppies were not walked, it was cold out and I have been a bum. I gained a pound.
With that said, do you hear ticking?..........I'm nearing the tenth anniversary of my 21st birthday and have been feeling baby fever. (Yes, that is me as a little person. I couldn't find any of Ken.) Babies are everywhere.......... At the grocery store.....little blue eyes are smiling at me. At church I receive a giggle and a wave. I long for a little person. Do a little web looking for a dress to wear to the Colorado wedding, low and behold..... so many designers make maternity clothes. Bump around Target without thinking...end up in the baby section. Hello, GOD ....are you trying to tell me something?
Ken was ready to have babies once we were engaged. At 37 he worries he will be too old. I know he will be an amazing daddy, that's one of the reasons I kept him. :D He says he agrees with my thoughts that "he needs to have regular work and pay checks before we "try" and that we needed to be married for at least a year (one year April 12th)." I know I am the only one holding us back. If I don't kick this baby fever soon.......Surprise!!!!!!
So, my dear readers....... How do you kick longing for a baby, you know without actually having one? I know people raise well adjusted children all the time while pinching pennies, but I know I could not raise a child with the amount of stress I've been feeling about work, money, and the economy. Any thoughts?
