Trying to raise my kids the best I can

Don't wait. Procreate.

me and Saphira

I found a couple of old time-lines I had written up year ago. Every so often I'll write a timeline of where I see my life going. Partly it's inspirational and partly it helps me plan. For instance, when I was in college it helped me figure out how many classes I had to take per semester if I wanted to graduate in a certain amount of time.

One thing, very interesting, that I noticed about these time-lines is that I would put off "having a baby" until after some achievement. For instance, in my first time line it was "pay off debt. Buy an apartment building" THEN "have a baby". (That didn't happen, by the way) And in my second time-line it was "get my nursing degree" THEN "have a baby". I think this is the practical, American/New England, responsible way. To plan and prepare before bringing a life into this world. But both times I got pregnant first. :) And I still managed to go on with my goals.

But waiting means the fleeting fertile years pass you by. So I just want to encourage people to dive in and become a parent. It doesn't have to stop your dreams from coming true.

    I completely agree. We ended up getting pregnant 3 months into our marriage. It wasn't the plan, but I haven't even for a second regretted it. I found myself. I love being a mother, and would love a bunch more kids!

    Okay, so I just want to say that I would love to dive into parenthood, but I need to do the responsible thing and get married first. Unless that is, you would suggest that I just go sleep with random people to get pregnant. Well talk on Sunday.
