Babies


Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I have had major baby brain for probably the last year plus. My boyfriend has also. I'm 24 so it's not a strange age to be getting started, there's just so much else going on. I feel like I'm doing a good job in life but there's so much I want to do before there's a little Roland or Dulce in our lives. Getting married is up there. We want to climb Kilimanjaro for our honeymoon and I'd really prefer if I didn't have a baby strapped to my back in addition to my back pack (just jokes friends, I know babies shouldn't go to high altitudes).
There's so many more adventures to have between now and that time, I just don't want us to both be in our 30s before starting, especially since he wants 5 haha.
We always said we would quit all abusive substances and stop eating crap for 6 months before we even got pregnant. We want to give our unborn kids the advantage we never had. I'm just so excited!
I know if it happened today we'd both be happy, but it's not the ideal situation at all.

Just venting about future happiness. I'm not even nervous, just excited. We have a beagle who is pretty needy and we both have plenty of experience with kids, it's just a waiting game now.

    We started when my DW was 30 and I was 36. We then alternated girl/boy/girl/boy every two years until we were done. You definitely lose some of the freedom and independence when you have little ones. But then you get to take them on your crazy adventures (even if you scale back on them for a while).

Good luck! It is a fun adventure!

    You're definitely not alone in the mid-20's baby brain. It seems like everyone is having babies except me (which is totally not true, but it feels that way sometimes). It's great that you and your bf are open about your future expectations. When the I-want-a-baby-brain turns on, I usually have to remind myself that you can't un-have a baby. Once they're here, they're here. Have fun going on adventures with your bf and climb mountains in Africa!

    I didn't start my family till I was 33, and I've been pretty stoked every since. Wasn't ready before cause had too much living to do! It's okay to wait. Tis all good. ;-) B
