The Baby Question

After you're married for about a year, everyone starts asking when you and your husband are going to have a baby.  Everyone wants to know.

And then you have a baby and everyone seems happy with that.

Until that baby is about 1 1/2 and then everyone starts asking when you're going to have another baby.

Well, Autumn is nearing that age.  She's apparently old enough to need/want a younger sibling.

So, everyone's been asking.

I don't usually mind.  But sometimes the question just feels like more pressure.

So here it is:  Yes.  We would like more kids.  Maybe 1 or 2.

But now just isn't the right time.  We are trying to be smart about everything and make sure life is in order.  As much as life can be in order.

Don't worry.  We will tell you when the time is right.

I HATE the baby question! I will never ask someone that and it annoys me that people are already talking about William and Kate and wondering.

JJ is 5 and 1/2 and may possibly be our only child. Why does society think this is an acceptable question to ask?

It really is no one elses business and can be quite a hurtful question.

Yes such an annoying question. And yes, the time has to be right for you
