Not too many years ago I was very ambivalent about children. They are expensive, they are a lot of work, they require a lot of your time and once you've got them it's impossible to get your pre-child life back without assessing some kind of criminal charge.
Now, I'm finding myself saying things to the hubster like, "When we have a baby, we'll get this crib," or "When we have a kid, I'll use eco-friendly diapers," and "I'm so excited that my sister is breastfeeding! I'm definately breastfeeding when we have a baby."
Apparently, something has changed.
I'd like to think that buying a house and getting married has made the idea of children a little more accessible. My main issue is that there is SO MUCH I haven't done yet, like I've never been to India, I've never backpacked through Europe, I've never taken a yoga retreat, or taken two solid weeks off for some restorative outdoors time. So much I still want to experience, like Macchu Picchu and the Great Barrier Reef, Japan in spring and Mayan ruins in fall.
But I'm getting more comfortable with the idea of crib midgets.
