This might sound a little crazy, but as soon as Greg and I got married, I caught major baby fever. Greg caught minor going on major baby fever, but he was able to get a handle on it for the time being. Me on the other hand, it was not that easy. All of a sudden I was thinking about having a cute, little baby that looked just like Greg ALL. THE. TIME. The idea of having an adorable, squishy, little baby that will grow up and have this whole amazing life of their own while being linked to us was just something I could not get out of my head even though I was kind of trying to because there are other things we are working on right now, and we just got married!
Greg suggested that we get a puppy, but we did have a little kitten once, and I just don’t think I am an animal person. Plus, I have a little fear of dogs, and I don’t know why.
I then decided I would just go an get my master’s degree (I started my master’s about a month ago, and we are so excited about it). I thought that as soon as I was accepted to the program I wanted to be in, it would be like giving the baby fever an Advil (you know a fever reducer). It did not work lol.
… but the other night, I think I may have gotten a handle on it. Greg and I were driving in the car, and we were talking about the future and what we both want. We we’re talking about my incurable baby fever. Greg made some really good points about how young we are and how if we just focus on some of our career/financial goals we’ll be all set. I then said, “but we’re only planning on having two!” He said he knew but that we just needed to reach our next milestone first. I then said, “well what if we do really, really well in the next couple of years, and then we can have like 5 babies!”
That was it. That was the cure! Greg said he always wished he had come from a really big family, and I can remember begging my mom to just have one more when they already had 3 of us. I had always thought I wouldn’t want to go over two, but if we can get to the point where we can provide a life for 5 little miracles, we are all in! So that is part of the new goal- working really hard = more babies! It’s a win-win!
