When I mentioned I contracted baby fever, no one was more surprised than me. Well, maybe that’s not entirely true. No less than 30 seconds after I published that post my phone exploded with text messages.
Here’s just a sampling:
“You know what’s not awesome? DIAPERS.”
“Better you than me. Excuse me while I sleep through the night.”
“RING OF FIRE! Scabbed nipples! Crying!”
Gotta love my friends. I have to admit the texts made me stop and think. Why do I want another baby? Is it the preciousness? The void in my heart? The fact that I’m turning 36? What?
So, I did what I do. I started a list of baby pros and cons. I’ve written this very list at least a half dozen times before but this time I took to Excel (which obviously meant I was serious). Out of the 20+ supremely heartfelt reasons on the pro baby list, these superficial 8 had absolutely no business being there.
Do you any superficial reasons for wanting another baby (or is it just me)?
