Since we’ve gotten married it seems like whenever anyone sees us the first question they ask is when are you guys having kids? I have the same generic answer for everyone which is not until I’m done with school. Lately the pressure to have kids has intensified since three of my cousins are pregnant. Two of them got married within three weeks apart from us. Oh man did I feel the pressure this week when my mom was here for a visit. She kept asking me and making comments about children.
Yesterday my hubby and I got to hang out with our goddaughter and her mom, my hubby’s aunt. We had a great time walking around with both of them. My hubby was playing around with the 3 year old and all of a sudden I saw a twinkle in his eye which I first thought was just his allergies but upon careful observation I think my hubby has come down with a serious case of the baby fever. Does anyone have a cure or a remedy for it I can get my hands on?
I don’t want to sound like the bad guy here but I hope I don’t catch the baby fever that is going around well at least not yet. Its not that I don’t want children but more like I’m happy where we’re at right now. I’m enjoying spending time with my hubby and really loving the married life. I was never one of those girls that set an age to be married by or has a specific age to have children by. I don’t hear a clock ticking like a lot of my friends and I think when we are both ready to have them it will be magical. I love children and can’t wait to have them one day but for now I’m happy just being the two of us.
Do you feel any pressure to have children or are you the one pressuring someone?
