Author Notes



Been asking myself that lately, it's a weird feeling!
@happybunnyntx: lol It was when I first had the feeling, but by the time James and I have discussed it more seriously it is both an exciting and terrifying thing to talk about. XD
Sometimes I feel like the only person in the world who doesn't like baby's :/
I don't find them cute and I don't like being around them
RATS ON THE OTHER HAND, I find them to be the most adorable little things ever. I have a much different opinion to most people
@Name: Naw, you're not the only one! One of my sisters has zero interest in kids, and I have a few friends who feel the same way. To each their own! Ain't no big deal to feel one way or the other. You do you. :)
@Name: Rats ARE brilliant (and under-appreciated)! <3 I like babies too though and when it comes to adult humans... eh, it depends.
It's a big change, but totally worth it. Though I will say the six months of not sleeping because of anxiety after the first one wasn't really a treat.

You just gotta remember that babies are pretty tough, and the worst probably won't happen. Just give the little one lots of love and enjoy all the moments, good and bad. Even the bad times you will look back fondly on. My oldest is almost four and my youngest is turning one next week, still get teary eyed rocking the youngest to sleep when she's crabby and remembering doing the same to my oldest.
@HalfAssedChaos: Your comment fills me with warm and fuzzies. <3 They're so fortunate to have a parent who loves them so much! <3
@Falconer: i betcha you would be the best mommy for any baby you get and that they will be no stranger to have a huge gold heart for a mother! :)
@Falconer: Yeah it's great, and I've been reading your comics for awhile so I know you're going to make a great mommy one day!

Real talk though, before you start even trying, get a budget together. Price out childcare in your area if both of you are planning on working and make sure you're not only mentally ready but financially as well. It's very important and is going to save you a lot of stress, not only in life but in your relationship as well. It's a big change and adding money woes on top of it can really hurt.

But again, so worth it in the end. My one year old just got the hang of walking this weekend. I missed my first daughter learning because I was working crazy hours at the time, but it's magical. I know you two are going to do great, it looks like you both have good heads on your shoulders and support each other enough to overcome any obstacle. I'll be rootin for ya when the day comes, not to mention looking forward to enjoying the pregnancy dailies. :P
@HalfAssedChaos: For real! We've only been talking about it more seriously lately now that we're more financially stable than we used to be. Been browsing around how much things costs and asking friends for how they handled stuff. :)
