Hubby and I have been married for almost three-and-a-half-years and whilst I appreciate for some that is a long time to be sans-children, for us, it's not. Don't get me wrong, I quite like babies/toddlers (children less so) but I'm perfectly content to have a cuddle, play a few games of pat-a cake and generally soak up all the good parts to being a parent, then, when the harder stuff kicks in, like they start crying, get hungry or need a stinky nappy changing, I'm more than happy to hand them back to their mother/father. As for Hubby, right now, he wouldn't thank you for handing him a baby to hold - he's much happier when he has a furry baby to play with instead. So, today, I'm gonna share with you a number of reasons why I feel the question above is highly inappropriate
This post became more of a rant that I had initially expected/wanted, but I guess that's what happens when you write about something that's close to your heart! To summarise, minus the rant, just don't ask any couple, no matter how well you think you know them, when they're having children - wait for them to bring it up! Plus, it'll be a nice surprise when/if then make their pregnancy announcement
on their terms.
