No pressure

I think it can be said that within minutes of spouses saying "I Do" some family member or friend will interrupt the bliss of the moment and blurt out

"so when are yous twos gonna procreate?!?!

we are from Texas so it was said similar to that, but I'm sure you could share your versions as well.

The look on boy's face was probably priceless if I wasn't the one getting a rush of nausea and panic.

Well almost 3 years later and the comments keep coming. This past Christmas on one side of the family there are 6 married couples. 2 of the couples are expecting and 2 announced they are expecting. I was more than thrilled because that means 4 new babies to hold at family events and baby Gap shopping trips.

Minutes after celebrating I could feel the wondering eyes on us.

No pressure though right?

That has never made sense to me. The whole expecting us to be expecting because they want a baby. It is funny though! especially reading your post on it. I think 4 new little ones should keep them all busy for awhile and hopefully take the attention off you.

So when are you planning on expecting??? HAHA! I just had to!!

I got married at 30 - so the questions started from day 1. And then it has not been so easy and so luckily the questions have stopped.
I feel you girl!

Ha! We will be married 7 years in April, and have chosen to wait to have kids. We would love to be married maybe two more years before trying for a family. 9 years is a long time to wait, but, I think every couple should wait until they are ready. We are having fun traveling and just enjoying each other's company! No pressure! : )

You run, don't walk, to Baby Gap then! They have cute stuff right now!

Oh, and Ava wanted me to put a little pressure on you guys. She'd love a friend in the area!

I know the feeling! My husband and I just had our 3rd anniversary and no babies yet. We've had comments like, "So, you know, you both aren't getting any younger".
What am I suppose to say to that, "Well, thanks a lot for the reminder...we'll do our best to please you just as soon as we can???" lol

Okay, just found your blog and LOVE IT! So, I just have to comment about this b/c my hubby and I, too, get the questions. We have been married for 3 and a half years and the questions increase as the time increases!! Sheesh! Oh, and I, too, tell others that I'll have children when theirs are old enough to babysit! LOL!
