I Have An Obsession....



I watch this show EVERY SINGLE DAY. In fact, I plan my lunch break from work around when this show will be on. (2 pm on TLC, in case you're wondering) I'm pretty sure they have 2 full hours of it every afternoon, but I never have that long of a break.

I don't know what it is about it that I love so much. Well, let's be honest, it's the babies. I LOVE BABIES! And yes, I want one SO BAD! But there are several reasons why this won't be happening for awhile:

1:



I need to graduate!! I'm kicking myself for taking so long to choose my major. I just applied to the advertising program. If I get in, I will only have 27 credits left before I graduate! Yay! So.... that's not too long to wait, right? WRONG! Because of reason #2:



I work. Full time. Which is GREAT because I absolutely LOVE my job! But, it makes going to school a little more difficult. Right now, I'm only taking 5 credits and only one class actually on campus. Next semester, I'm going to bump it up a notch. With such great motivation (baby?!?!) I think I should be able to handle it.

And #3?



My wonderful husband, the handsome devil that he is, just doesn't think it's time yet. Normally, I'm always right. But in this case, I have to agree with him. I want to make sure that when we bring another soul into this world that it's done at the right time on the Lord's time table. Heavenly Father knows best what we need. I feel confident that He will let me know when it's "time." :)

So for now, I'm content to wait. I love being married to my amazing husband and I'm totally fine with just spending some time with him for now. Although I'm not really seeing him very much these days. He pretty much lives with Mr. Benson and Mr. Lee. I guess I should start joining him.

I'm happy watching other parents welcome their beautiful babies into this world. Plus, I learn a TON! Not to mention, I do reBLOGsearching and read tons of moms' stories about their deliveries and pregnancies. I found out this weekend that the first four of my mom's six kids all came naturally! Wow! Way to go Mom! With Number 5 she decided to try the epidural, but it only worked on HALF of her body. Talk about pain!! Then Jody decided to get himself stuck anyway and he had to be delivered via emergency C-section. So Cassie came via scheduled C-section. All my new knowledge is pushing me towards the decision of wanting to do natural child births. For those who know me, you know my pain tolerance is basically non-existent. But I'm pretty sure I could handle it. I guess I have awhile to decide though, right? :)




Hopefully someday I'll have as many as my mom had (or more?) and I'll look back at this and laugh.

(So anyone with kids that needs a babysitter, let me know! I would be happy to spend some time with your little ones!!)

Every time Wes and I walk past a baby I just look at him and mutter, "If you ever do that to me..."

I'll be happy for you when you have a baby. Course you'll have to name it Rebecca if you ever want me to come visit. Otherwise you can just forget about a baby shower.
