Hey, baby.

This morning my friends had a baby! His name is Brody and I bet he is crazy adorable. It's all very exciting... and (for me) a little frightening.

I'm at the age when many of my friends are finally starting to get married and have babies. I have 2 weddings to attend so far this year and I know of a couple of people who are pregnant or have just had babies.

And then there is me. That shit is totally not even on my radar. I don't really ever think about getting married, which probably has a lot to do with the fact that I do not have a boyfriend in which to marry. But even still. If I actually did have a boyfriend, I don't think I would be thinking about marriage. To me, marriage is something you don't even really start to consider as a possibility until you are 30. I am not 30. So I do not think about it.

I can say that right now, I still don't think I want to have kids. But apparently, I am wrong about this. It seems as though every person I have ever said this to has told me that I am going to change my mind. I will WANT to have babies. This is a little scary. I don't WANT to want babies. But I guess we will just have to see how that one plays out.

Now if you will excuse me, I am going to go have a panic attack in the bathroom.

I've been dating the same guy for almost 4 years and I never think about getting married! It's like a non-issue. Milk, cow, whatever, we're happy! My mom will accept it someday.
