Knocked Up

No, not me. But it seems that the entire internet done gone and got itself knocked up or just gave birth. The stork must be super tired because he has been work overtime. Congratulations to you and Holy crap, you’re almost there! to you, by the way.

I think if you’d ask me ten years ago where I’d be today, a lot of things would be different. I thought for sure I’d be married with kids. Plural. Of course, ten years ago I was 18 and what the hell did I know then? I know now that I am happily married and okay that we don’t have kids yet. There are enough children in my life to focus my time, attention and money on without me feeling some gaping void. Also, not having kids means that I can still be selfish and pretend that it’s okay to eat out 4 times a week, or that it’s okay to keep buying books from half.com because umm, it’s half.com.

On the flip-side, I’d be lying if I said there isn’t a part of me that can’t wait to see the little person my husband and I could create. A child would quite simply, rock our world and turn our universe on it’s side – and I look forward to that. It’s a way’s off yet before we even get to the let’s really try to do this stage as we have so many big things on the loom. There’s just something about babies though, that make you all warm and fuzzy inside. I suppose it’s their newness. Not tainted by the evils of this big, bad world. They hold so much promise and joy and just good – sometimes, I can’t even wrap my mind around the whole thing.
