For all you married people [without children or referring back to pre-pregnancy] do you ever stop and think about the fact that any day you could wake up and find out your pregnant? That you could, in one moment, one split second, find out your whole life for the rest of forever and eternity will change forever? Every once in a while I have those realizations and it's weird for me. Maybe because my whole life, well as soon as I knew what The Birds and The Bees referred to, having a baby meant you had sex and having sex was bad and only something married people do.
I've been married for over a year and sometimes I still get this realization that not only could Matt and I have a baby, but that it wouldn't be "bad." Sometimes I'm afraid that's one of the reasons we want to wait so long. Because as soon as you tell people your pregnant, they know that you *gasp* did it. But then how weird would it be to be married for over a year and not have? You might need marriage counseling if that were the case. I don't know, maybe I'm alone on this mental boat ride but it really makes me look at the way I live my life.
It makes me want to do and be better.
