Don't Drink the Water!!!!!

At least that is what my Hubs told me at dinner Saturday night!

Hubs and I went out to dinner with our wonderful neighbors, A and H, who are expecting their first baby together {soooo excited for them}!!!! We were all talking and joking about 'honeymoon row'** while at dinner.

H mentioned that maybe we should change the name from 'honeymoon row' to 'baby row.' H started naming off all these neighbors that are pregnant or recently had a baby. It turns out that there are at least 15 women in our neighborhood that are currently pregnant or recently popped out a kid. And when I say 'in our neighborhood' that really only covers 2-3 streets in our neighborhood.
My jaw nearly hit the table. Hubs eyed my glass of water, grabbed it and said, "don't drink the water stick with beer for now." lol

Don't get me wrong, Hubs and I eventually want kids.....key word- eventually. We have only been married for 4 1/2 months and there is still a lot we would like to do before we start thinking about having a baby. So until that time comes we will enjoy each other and our moments of irresponsibility.

I feel like as soon as you get married people immediately start asking you when you are going to start popping out kids. Anyone else encounter this?!? We had a couple people ask us when we were going to start a family at our wedding reception......AT OUR WEDDING RECEPTION!!!! Just to be a smart ass I really wanted to answer, "Tonight."

**Story behind 'Honeymoon Row'- when we first moved into our neighborhood our street and the street behind us (backyards backed up to each other) was called 'honeymoon row' because for the last 6 or more years at least one household on the row had gotten married. Everyone thought the trend was going to stop in 2009 because no one was getting married......that is until we moved in! :-) I can happily say that we helped the tradition continue! Now we need to find a couple for 2010 to keep it going!

I'm with you! I wanted to be married for a few years and enjoy "us" time before we have kids!

I'm the same... we want to wait a few years after we're married :)

I'm with you too! Just within my circle of friends, one announced she was pregnant, then 2 weeks later, another did. Then 1 month later my co-worker announced she was pregnant! As soon as I found this out, I texted BF and said, "It's in the water. Don't come home without condoms. :-)"

Don't drink the water.
From a girl that had three kids really fast, (oops, I mean I was pregnant when I got married!) definitely wait. Enjoy your time together... you will be SO happy that you did!!

I TOTALLY agree! There have been a lot of babies around here lately :) I just found out my best friend is pregnant too. My MIL is wanting us to catch the "baby fever" - no way... not for a few years and we are just fine with waiting :)

Definitely take your time and enjoy the 'just the two of you' moments!

Just found your blog! And I'm laughing really hard about your wanting to answer 'tonight' to the people who asked when you were going to start a family. I've been married about a year and a half, and I swear, from like the first month people would always ask when. I still haven't come up with a witty answer.
