I have already told my best friends—more than a few times—that I will not have pregnant bridesmaids in my wedding. Now, I'm not sure when I'm actually getting married, so girls, either get knocked up NOW, or you wait until you're 35.
Of course, I am kidding (kinda, sorta...ok, not really!), but I'm just not ready for all of my friends to start having babies. I am just so.not. there yet. (Sorry mom, I know that's not what you want to hear!) I like my life how it is now—unpredictable, with the feeling that the sky's the limit! I admit it, I'm selfish. I wanna do me before I start giving all of myself to another little human being, and I'm certainly not ready to go to cookouts where half of the people there are under five years-old.
With that being said, I can start to feel my biological clock start to tick ever so slightly. All of a sudden, babies are cuter than ever, and I have even found myself playing peek-a-boo with a few random babies on the subway. Whoa. And this precious lil' guy is George Danger Wahlgren—my friend, Kara's son. As you can see, his cute-factor is off the charts. I love baby George for three reasons: 1) His parents are the coolest people ever. 2.) His middle name is Danger—'nuff said. 3.) He cannot smell my fear. I told you in this post that most babies can smell my fear and instantly start crying when I am within a 10-foot radius. Not Danger. I met him for the first time this summer, and when he looked at me with those big blue eyes and smiled, I fell in love.
I hope I don't sound like a total scrooge. Of course, when the time comes to have children (God willing), it will be the biggest blessing of my life. For now though, I'll cherish my nights out, crushing on Samantha Ronson and partying until 6am.
What about you: Are your friends having babies? How do you feel about it? Are YOU having babies??
