Oh my!!!

So what is the deal you get married and all of the sudden everyone that you see must ask the inevitable question..."so when are you guys going to have a baby" NO TIME SOON!! But somehow getting ask this at least once a week has crept into my thoughts and now I find myself thinking up names for my not yet conceived children, decorating their room in my head, picking out clothes I like etc... Then last night I got worried. When Ike and I got married we made a rule Buster sleeps on his bed beside ours because he had been sleeping in the bed with Ike. It stresses me...I'm weird about the bed, I don't even like Ike to get in the bed with clothes that he wore that day and in college when I had 4 roommates I ALWAYS made the bed first thing in the morning because I was worried one of them may sit on my bed...I know I said I'm weird. So back to why I am worried now...Ike has changed his mind now he thinks we should let Buster sleep in the bed with us..."it's mean to leave him on the floor by himself after leaving him all day in his kennel"...Ike says! He SHEDS!! and so I say we should stick to the rules...but Ike is caving and he tells Buster "Mommy is mean, I'm sorry" in this pitiful voice. Ok so I know Buster is not effected but how will this go when we have kids. I will have to be the enforcer of the rules, not that this is a surprise. But I don't want to be the bad guy all the time. We are going to workout some balance somehow someway! Ike is too darn nice! :)

We have the same problem with Bear. Josh lets him sleep in the bed and I don't (but it's b/c he wakes me up). But with kids we are on the same page with discipline (for now anyway...we'll see when one actually gets here). And I too hate the "when are you guys going to have a baby?" question!

I think that question is written the the wedding vows and the only people that hear it are the ones watching you get married. That question was asked of me some many times! The best one of all is when you have had the first one, they all want to know when is the next one coming?? That one kills me! Now I am getting the next question. Well, now you have 2 when will #3 be here? My answer NEVER!! Oh, and on the other subject, your heart changes so much when you hold your own child for the first time that you will not have to worry about your bed or anything else. It will all fall into place.

I love this! You are too funny! Oh, and people are NOT going to stop asking you when you're going to have a baby until you get pregnant and then when that baby gets here they'll be asking you "are you ready for another one?" It never ends!

it only gets worse. soon your families will be asking the inevitable question. enjoy just the two of you as long as you can. a baby will change your life, not bad just change.
i am with you, NO dogs in my bed but oh lots of spit up and formula along the way :) and neither one of us are good rule enforcers. brinkley thinks no is a funny word and therefore we all end up laughing. oh well there is always later
