Babies On The Brain

I know this is a teensy bit premature, but it's something that I've been thinking about a lot lately: I can't wait to be a mom. That's the God's honest truth, mi gente.

I know we still have the wedding to get through and all, but that has not kept me from dreaming about our future family.

I've been researching how to eat and exercise during pregnancy. I've been looking into ways to make my own baby food. I'm looking at baby furniture. I've even gone as far as to look into pre-schools. I know...I'm losing it.

So many of my close friends have already started their families and I want in on the action. Wil and I have talked about when we'd like to start our family and it's coming...soon. This is despite the advice we've gotten from MANY couples telling us to spend some quality time as man and wife first. That seems like a good idea, but I don't know if it fits our situation.

We've been living together for 23095872305 years and have traveled a bunch. Our entire relationship has been all about us thus far. We think we're ready to stop being selfish and begin to live for someone other than ourselves. Besides, we're not getting any younger. Wil doesn't want to be the old dad at parent teacher night and I don't want to be pregnant after 35. I'm 28 the math.

My Love Cub will be finished with his economics degree next year. We've already agreed that we don't want to get knocked up before then because I don't want him to be worrying about his pregnant wife at home when he should be concentrating on finals. After that's done, we're good to go! 

One thing we did think was important to do before we get knocked up is to go on a pretty bad-ass vacation, just the two of us. Italy? France? Spain? A cruise to all three? I have no clue! 

I know some of you did this before starting your family...where did y'all go on your babymoon?

Chiquita banana, you are not alone! Funny I'm reading this now because I just woke up from a dream that I was pregnant with twins and that my best friend just announced a dinner celebration and trip in honor of her own pregnancy announcement.

That said, I'm single and for several other reasons in addition to that am not planning on procreating quite yet, but I kid you not, I already have my baby bag of choice and have been making plans for my precious creations stamped by Papa Dios for years. This includes their diet, which will be almost nothing like my own, I want to start them with better habits young, make it all they know! My former boss made her own baby food, so I know I always have her as a one on one guide, but much to my neighbors confusion, I shrieked with delight when I saw this informercial at her house the other day: I'm even considering getting it as soon as I finally have my own place to start experimenting.

And of course you should do a tour of Europe pre-preggers! Then you'll have great stories to share with your little ones when they join you!
