Ted: [to Marshall and Lily] Are you kidding me?!? All you ever talk about is having kids, and now you have one little freakout, you want to get a dog instead? No, unacceptable! You’re gonna turn around, go home, get naked, lie together as man and wife until Lily is great with child! Right now. [couple still look at him] I’M SERIOUS, GO GO GO! –How I Met Your Mother
Last night Match and I got together with Couple Friends for a long overdue double date. We joked that the last time the four of us got together was a baby and a half ago! We got together at Old Chicago Pizza and ate our weight in pizza, drank beers and caught up.
Couple Hubby told us both a really sweet example of the decision to have a baby. He said it was like when you have to give a speech in class. You hate to go first, but at the same time, you get it done with, and then you can sit back and relax. If you want kids at all, you know that you’re going to have them eventually, so you might as well just do it. You’re never going to be ready, but once you get up there and give that speech, you will feel relieved. He said it’s not that you’ll be relieved when the kids grow up, but some stages of raising babies is tough, and when you get through that stage, you get that sense of relief and accomplishment.
I loved his little talk and I think Match did too. Couple Wife chimed in that no one is ever ready and that if you wait until you are, you will never have kids.
then headed to Couple Wife’s parents house to visit Couple babies. They were so stinking cute! They warned us that their kids would make my ovaries hurt and they would affect male reproductive parts the same way. I started cracking up and said, “Umm I don’t think you can say the same about a guy and not have it sound really perverted. Oh man, those kids make my sperm ache.” That is just plain awkward! 🙂
We played with the kids and couldn’t get over how big Couple Toddler has gotten. He is 2 years old already! When Match and I first got together, Couple Wife was pregnant. I was literally there from the beginning. When he toddled over and cuddled up on my lap, I won’t lie, my heart strings were pulled. He is such a cutie pie.
I’m so glad that even though we live further away, we still have our Couple Friends. I can already see us one day with our own babies, all of us getting together and watching them play. Someday…
