Yes…it’s time for THE TALK…the baby talk! You heard me right!
The ones who know me well, know that this has never been a big wish of mine. I like kids (when they belong to someone else), and I do great for a baby sitter, but do I do great for a mother?
As time is ticking and my ovaries should start tickling (as my sweet @littlepaperplane likes to say), my husband and I started to have THE TALK!
Neither of us feels ready nor has a strong wish for it now, but somehow we started thinking when will we be ready. At what point in time is the time right? I look around Instagram and around friends and I’m amazed by some power woman & mothers and think to myself “I could never do that”. I feel like I don’t have time for my daily life right now, and I never manage to get enough sleep or “me time”, so how should I manage a baby next to all this?
I have so many plans for my career and for discovering the world that I find it hard already to manage it all the way it is now, but is it possible with a baby too? Can I manage it? I see other woman who can and are damn good at it, but I also hear how exhausting it is and how little time you have left for your own things. Might sound selfish and all but I don’t want to give up on creating a daily life that is fulfilling for me and my husband too. Of course I can adapt and make some changes, but I don’t want to have to change completely.
These are difficult questions and I am sure that I will hear different opinions on the topic, which is fine. We’re all just human beings with our own life and unique personalities and it is only normal to live our lives in our own way.
Well…long story short…we talked…and talked…and came to no conclusion.
The topic has been “parked” for later!
