Waiting to Start a Family

There are so many reasons that Matt and I have decided to wait to start our family. We both feel that right now, we are not at a place where we feel stable enough to bring a child into the world. Also, we are selfish and want some time for just the two of us.

We both love children and are excited for the day we do start a family, but we are both pretty sure that day is not any day soon. Also, there are so many fears associated with childbirth for me, it's ridiculous how much I worry about it. I have come out on here before out my past struggles with anorexia, and I honestly am scared that I may have screwed up my body to the point where I might not even be able to get pregnant. I don't want to get to far into the things I am scared of on here, at least not in this post, but really, it's a scary thing over which I would have almost no control. I like control. This is getting much to serious of a post for today. So anyway...

That doesn't mean I don't wonder what our future child might look like. You may remember a post from a while ago that had me convinced that our child would be part pig. Well I gave a new picture morphing site a try. And aside from being slightly creepy, at went well...

Okay...that's not too bad I guess. I mean, yes, her head is slightly bulbous, but who am I to judge? Have you seen the size of my cheeks?

So let's see what a boy would look like!

Oh! A redhead? Well, sometimes my hair has a reddish tint, and Matt had red in his that makes sense I guess. I mean anything is possible right? I like redheads!

Okay. I know I said anything is possible...but there would have to be a strong suspicion of marital infidelity if I produced this from my loins correct? Maybe it's a fluke, maybe they just random give the child a race to be EEOE or something. I'll try again...

...what the hell? Seriously. I don't know if you have noticed. We are actually both white. One more time...with new pictures.

Great...a duck. I'm going to birth a duck? Usually when someone talks about the hypothetical ugly duckling child they still mean a HUMAN child.

Story of my life people! STORY. OF. MY. LIFE.


  1. Love your sense of humor! I'm hoping that the duck thing is only temporary though!

  2. hahaha, that's hilarious. if you birth a duck you'd better post pictures daily....and consider naming him Howard.

  3. This reminds me of that scene in "How to lose a guy in 10 days". Good thing you and Matt are already married! :)

  4. LOL,jen is right!!!

    You two will make lovely ducklings! You will be so proud!

  5. Haha that site looks cool. Now I am going to have to go check it out.

  6. I'm. Crying. Laughing. So. Hard.

    Listen...Shooter and I have been married almost 9 years and just about a year ago decided we were ready to give up the selfish life we led. Live it up girl! You guys need to enjoy being young and carefree!

  7. I thought the duck kid was the cutest. My I'm also a sucker for a redhead.

    Whenever it happens for you two, I'm sure your babies will be white. And cute. LOL.

  8. Wow, that's just plain scary! LOL

    I think you and Matt will make much cuter babies than any computer can generate.

  9. I have four kids, and all I can say is, thank G-d they look more and more like their mother every day!

    Also, my wife and I waited two years before starting a family. A very smart move, in my humble opinion.


  10. thanks for all your reassurances guys! I appreciate that you all think our kids will be cuter than Im not so sure.

    But you will definately have to wait a few years to find out (barring and accidents...that still scares me!)
