In a perfect world...

...all of these things would happen before I kick the bucket.





I mean, i'll be honest, 
I'm 25, and I am so ready to start a family.

Sure, this may not be the perfect time, but i'm growing very impatient.

My lady parts aren't getting any younger.
I'm losing precious eggs, 
and I've reached a point in my life where I care more about babies and having a family than what my physical appearance looks like.

I no longer care "all about me" and really just want to care "all about them".

The past couple of years I have learned one thing about myself:

I was not brought into this world with the fire to be the best in a the work place or make a bazillion dollars,
...I was brought here to be a mom.

And hopefully, one day, a great mom. 


Maybe my dream will come true and the right time will happen in 2012.

A girl can wish, right?
Pin It!

I totally get what you're saying. Sometimes I get this incredible urge to have a child like RIGHT NOW even though I am 20, still in school and totally financially dependent on my dad. Haha

That is a wonderful wish! From reading your post, you sound like you will make a wonderful mom someday. Being a mom is everything that I am and everything that I have ever wanted to be! I have two boys and without a doubt, they complete me. I hope you get your wish in 2012!!! Here's to a fertile new year :)

I have similar desires...but they have been put on hold a bit after nannying two babies. It's just past noon right now and I have already changed 5 poopy diapers (cute feeding your kids prunes and craisins!!). Its out of control a lot!

Rebecca said...

your still young, only 25! Plenty of time =] And I really want to have a natural birth too when I have a child just to see if I can do it! but idk if i can!

Victoria said...

Oh I hope it's the year for you! How amazing! No time ever feels perfect until it happens in my opinion. I've definitely found that to be true.

P.S. Glad you commented on my blog today, because that led me here and I've loved seeing yours!

I totally know how you feel, sometimes I want a baby so badly it's ridiculous! But I have to wait, and it feels like FOREVER!
Hopefully 2012 is the time for you. :)

I've done everything on your bucket list, except adopt a child....unless you count my dog, because he really is my other baby! :)

Kids ARE hard work, but they come with the sweetest rewards. Don't wait until the "perfect time" to have a baby....there is no such thing!

I had my first baby at 17, and things worked out for me in that not-so-perfect timing. Things will work out for you too! <3

Kodi said...

I'm so glad you found my blog!

I am the same way. I have no desire to have a career. All I want to do is be a mom.
I'm only 19 and I want a baby. I know I need to be in a committed relationship and junk but if it happened tomorrow, I wouldn't be upset.

I'm glad someone else feels the same way. New follower!<3

Alyssa said...

I can't wait to have all of those things one day!

Pamela said...

Hi there thanks for stopping by my blog!
This is a sweet post! I definitely got to that point where I couldn't wait any longer to have a baby! I was 28 when my daughter was born and I think that was a good age! But everything will happen for you when it is meant to :)

I'm so glad you left a comment on Veggie Table - I'm loving Lost & Found and all the veggie recipes! Can't wait to read more!

Aimee L said...

Well, at least you have the right attitude! I am so NOT ready to start a family (nevermind the fact that I'm not married - even if I was, I wouldn't be ready)...and I still am all about myself. But at least I can admit it! I hope your 2012 wish comes true :) xoxo

Breanna said...

Totally agree with you! I am not yet engaged, but still feel this way! Maybe within the next couple of years? :)

You and I are in the same boat! Except I'm 29! I'm totally ready for a baby! But we have decided to wait until we buy a house...which will be this year! :) I'm soooo impatient! :)
Maybe you and I will have babies around the same time!

Stephanie said...

Aww, I hope it comes soon for you. I'm sure you'll be an awesome mom someday!

Grace said...

love your wish! it's nice to hear unselfish wishes. I too want a baby and to be a great mom. It's definitely high on my things to be list too.

Jamie said...

I just found your blog through Mary's blog mary in marriedland and then read this post and just had to say I know how you feel. I will be 25 and also cant wait to start a family, although it will still be a while for me considering I am still single, but I also know I was made to be a mom, some people dont understand what I mean when I say that, but you obviously do! Glad Im not the only one of my age that feels this way!

I loved this post. I hope you get your wish for 2012!

Caiti said...

I know exactly how you feel! I was just the same one year ago. (I turned 26 in September)...but then in July we got pregnant the very first time we even pseudo tried and so, trust me, you lady parts are ready and waiting! lol! I see you are engaged so good luck with the planning and maybe baby isn't too far behind. :)

I feel the exact same way. I settled for a mediocre job and after my husband is finished with med school, it's baby time. I am so ready, and know that this is what I am supposed to do. Love this post !

I totally feel you! I'm almost 30, & I am SO there. Although, I was at the girly doctor recently & she told me I still have a long time, so I needn't worry.
