Feeling the Burn

A good friend of mine recently gave birth to her first child. She had always been one of my partners in no-baby-ness, so it was weird when she first got pregnant, but we talked a lot about it. I could see how happy she was - and that was what I'd worried about (ie that her guy had wanted it and she wasn't sure or something along those lines). She was. And she is. Seems pretty darn blissful, actually, and her little guy is precious. I've got to play with him and hold him a couple of times now, and it's pretty darn nice.

Those are the moments when I wonder if I'll really be happy if I never, ever have kids. Because in those moments, I really want one. Not just a baby, but I want to see a child grow and develop. I want to know what music they'd like and what movies they'd watch. I really want to meet whatever child my guy and I would have.

Interestingly, we'd seen Knocked Up not too long ago, and it spurred us talking a bit about kids... and he's not nearly so solid on the "no kids" thing as he used to be either. Looks like we're both in transition about the whole thing. No decisions yet, which is good. It's not the time NOW regardless. We need to strengthen our finances a lot more after buying the house and get a lot more stable before we even consider it. But it's interesting to know that we might end up considering it.

I've noticed that a lot of guys that say "NO BABIES" change their mind as they get older.
My husband has told me that he was a "NO BABY EVER!!" guy until he was 29 and then he started really wanting kids. So... who knows :).

Yeah, I didn't know that I'd ever want them either, so I suppose everybody changes with time. I think that even a guy's biological clock eventually starts ticking ;)
