Save Your Breath For Blowing Up Waterwings Breeder

When The Mrs. and I started talking about getting married, one of the earliest things that came up was kids. Back in my twenties I wanted kids. Preferrably two. Now that I'm in my thirties I'm less sure. I told her I wouldn't mind having kids, but I didn't want to be so old I couldn't keep up with them. And I really didn't want to be the oldest dad at the high school graduation.

The Mrs. very much wants to have children. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that she's adopted. Once you get to know her parents it's pretty obvious that she's adopted. She's very different from them. Fortunately though, their influences on her are very obvious as well. I think their influence is why the free form artist was able to fall and love and be happy with a logical engineer who likes to plan. And vice versa.

But I digress. The point is....... The Mrs. wanted to have kids badly, and I didn't want to be old and feeble when my kids were young. Everyone told us we should be married for awhile before trying to have a baby. And we both had our reasons for not waiting too long. Conventional wisdom is that it takes at least 6-12 months to get pregnant once a couple starts trying. I had just watched some close friends of mine try for a year before being successful. So with that in mind we decided to just let nature take its course and see how long it took. After all, "It'll probably take awhile."

So has anyone figured out where this is all going yet? It took six weeks. Less than two months after our wedding my wife told me she's knocked up. Holy crap I'm going to be a dad.

Thanks for all the well wishes. And that's a good idea Ex. I'm going to warm up my CAD program first thing tomorrow. Now I just have to get a good topographical survey of the yard.....
