Hopefully this does not offend anyone, it's not intended too, I just wanted to share some thoughts and experiences so my posterity will be able to read our blog in years to come. . .
Derek and I have been married for a little over 3 1/2 years, and for some reason, since August 5, 2005, people have constantly asking when we are having kids. Now, it's expected from family (obviously, a God given right), but Derek was getting a haircut the other day, and the stylist asked how long we'd been married etc. She was astounded we had been married soooo long and didn't have kids! She then proceeded to ask if I was baby hungry crazy...(really?!)
I've been asked multiple times by people in the ward, old high school friends whom I haven't seen in 5 years etc. Think about it, isn't it kind of personal question? I was at Target the other day and a ran into a high school friend and in our 3 minute conversation she'd already asked when I was having kids. I know we are in Utah, and I'm not saying that it is bad to have kids soon after you're married, but it's not bad to not have kids after 3.5 years of marriage!
Derek and I were talking about how we're like grandparents. All our friends either are single or have babies, multiples, cousins all have babies, and we adore them...
I mean really?! Look how cute all these kids are! (If I don't have your child's pic posted, I still love them too) But really, it's fun to buy toys and clothes for nephews, cousins, and friends babies! We get to play with the chillins, and then when they poop, we can hand them right back! Spoiling them is quite fun.
(These are Chelsee's kids, before I even knew her, I had wanted to steal their little boy! Look at that hair!)
