It hit! Baby fever! I want to have a baby! Not right now but soon. I’m still really young and I have a lot that I want to accomplish before any baby-making goes down, but I also know that having children or at least one or two children is a part of my plan in life. You never know how things are going to turn out in your favor, and this isn’t a plan really, but I just know that I want to have kids and I want to have a successful husband who is going to help me with the kids. I just want a great family and though I’m not going to settle, and if I have to wait until I’m thirty or even forty before that happens to me then I will. If I can’t have kids naturally at forty then I’ll just adopt. My plan was to have one kid biologically and a second kid by adoption. I’m not averse to adopting all of my children but I am adverse to IVF. Not ruling it out as a possibility if I did wait that long and couldn’t do it naturally, just saying I’m not crazy about it and it’s not plan A or B (or C LOL). I really feel as though I’m moving into a moment of wanting to have kids a couple years after college. Maybe around 25. I just want to make sure that I have all of my ducks in a row before I start on that journey lol. I want to be able to give them everything. I want them to travel the world, learn new languages, go to great schools, and have everything that they need. My mother has done a fantastic job in raising me and my older brother. Anything that we needed she bought, anything that we wanted, she bought (she still buys lol). She has supported us through all the highs, the lows, and the I don’t knows. I can’t wait to do that for my own kids. Now I just need to finish college, get my business up and running, and find that husband. I hope the husband part isn’t going to be too much of an impediment LOL. I’m not settling for any ole’ one but at the same time, I’m just not into the chase. I know relationships are hard and I’m willing to work through that, but the initial getting together … I just want someone who wants the same thing that I want. I want someone that wants to be successful and marry, have kids with, and love that successful woman and their children. I don’t want to have to put up with someone who is just stringing me along or pretending to share the same value system that I have. It would totally and completely drive me up the wall and I would be majorly pissed off. There are plenty of women out there who are willing to fuck around with you, don’t waste your time on me and don’t have me wasting my time on you.
So anyone reading this I’ll leave this last tidbit of information that yes I’m only 18, soon to be 19 in two more weeks. Yes I am young, but NO I AM NOT in anyway saying in this post that I’m running out to be knocked up and left with a kid that I cannot completely care for by myself at this point in time. I am merely expressing my feelings of baby fever, which are totally and completely natural. It’s okay to feel the urge to want to do something as long as you don’t act on it irrationally (shopping is an exception to this as long as you can put your money where your mouth is lol). So please do not bludgeon me over this blog post and please don’t rant over a million things that I already know about like how much hard work babies are and how you can’t give them back. I already have people in my own family who had kids young and it’s a great incentive for me not to follow in their irrational foot steps.
Now without further ado, I leave you with a million pictures of some of my favorite really cute babies and dome really cute maternity shots!
