We're at the point in our marriage (and age, I guess) where the majority of our friends have children. Babies. Womb fruit.* Seriously, everywhere we go, all I see is babies.

TMI alert
: Paul and I aren't actively trying for any children right now. In fact, I think the idea of raising another human being from literally nothing secretly freaks him out--which of course is why I use every opportunity to look at him with my motherly eyes and rub my non-pregnant belly.

Sometimes I softly sing "Baaaaaby!" to make it sound even more excited to start procreating, to which his reply is something like this:

(I imagine that is what our future kid will look like sliding out of my uterus. I'm pretty sure that's how this baby thing works.)

In all seriousness, I think I'd be an awesome mom but Paul keeps squashing that dream, insisting that we wait until after my brother and sister-in-love Sandra get married in Mexico next summer.

For now, since we don't have any kids and aren't planning on any for a while, I guess I'll just cope with my other two babies.

*Shout out to Amy Pagitt, who we first heard this term from and now use in reference to our fictitious children. She also uses serial commas, so she's practically my favorite of all time.


  1. haha this is great and so spot on! SO many people here are having babies, lucky for us most of our close friends aren't but it's starting to happen.

  2. I didn't realize you guys are blogging together and this makes me happy :) I think you both would be phenomenal parents, but enjoy your time together as a couple now!! Keep bothering him, tho...I'm sure he'll cave eventually ;)

  3. Haha, I'm super late to this post but it made me laugh. Your other 2 babies are great, but I think a real-live one would be fantastic as well ;)
