Well I already consider myself a mom of two crazy dogs and a sassy cat. What I’m referring to is kids. This post is definitely out of the ordinary for me and definitely not something I’d ever think about sharing with the World Wide Web. But as you may recall, one of my New Years resolutions is to be more open about my life and more transparent.
So I thought I’d bring up something that’s been on mine and my husbands minds lately, especially mine. We definitely want to have kids, so my title may be a little misleading. When is the right time to start a family?
I know we’ve only been married a wonderful three months, but we’ve been together for 6 years. So this is something we’ve definitely discussed. Every time we talk about it though we always come up with a different time frame of when to start trying.
… After I’ve been at my job for a year
… After I start my masters
… When we can buy a house
…After two years of marriage
And much more! We’ve always had a reason why now is not the time. That’s why I’m asking, when is the time? Is there truly a “right” time?
Life is always throwing curveballs, so I feel that there will always be something that we should do before we try to have kids. If we always put it off, when will we actually start trying?
What I do know is that God has a plan for our lives. And even though we don’t have the answer right now, I believe that God will tell us when the right time is!
…now if I could just get rid of my baby fever!
