BabiesPosted: June 27, 2005
Saturday, and I co-hosted a shower for our good friend who is expecting a boy in September. I still find it incredible that the people I know are getting married and thinking about & having children.
When we were out to breakfast yesterday, there was an adorable blonde curly-haired boy sitting near us and The Boyfriend is the one who brought his cute-ness to my attention. A little further into our meal he blurts out in a definitive way: “I want kids” and I look at him in the stunned way that I do when he brings these things up (a lot more lately). He wants to start trying in about 2 years (hypothetically after 1 year of marriage). And I am only coming to terms with the idea of having kids now.
Granted he is a few years older than me. I’m 24 and I don’t see myself wanting any kids till I’m about 28. We agreed on 3 years at the very earliest. Having a kid 100% changes your life and I want to enjoy adulthood for a while before I bring a kid into my life.
