What’s The Deal With Babies?

Posted by poinsettia on Apr 03, 2012

Once you are married, the conversation with friends and family {and strangers for that matter} quickly turns from, “How is wedding planning going?” to “When are you guys going to start your family?”  I can’t think of a more annoying conversation, if I tried! Not to mention, a little offensive.

Why does marriage = babies?

I understand that it is a natural path for most but others need to understand it isn’t a path for everyone!  My thinking is this…I just moved 3,000 miles away from everyone I know and love and am starting a new life with my husband in a strange city that has an unlimited amount of activities and adventures!  From wine tasting to snowboarding to beach bathing to bike-riding to shopping to eating to drinking to enjoying our time together, there is literally a thousand things to do, try, and experience before we think of “inviting” a third to share in our fun!  Not to mention that we have two little four-legged bodies in our household that we spoil rotten, and we just added another one!

So..if you can’t possibly think of anything to talk to me about besides expanding our “family,” maybe we just shouldn’t talk!  From now on, I’m going to flash this little picture of our little Lamb Chop and say, “Oh, we just did! Isn’t she the most precious thing you’ve ever seen? She is the easiest baby on the planet, and we don’t even have to worry about diaper duty!”  I can’t wait to see their reactions – I think bugged eyes and an open-mouth would be an appropriate response!
