You Can Eat Out Or You Can Have a Baby

The title of this post is a quote from my husband!!! :) Believe it or not!


Context:
My husband and I have been talking about having a baby. We've been married four and a half years and we both just graduated in May of 2007 from college. Basically, I have been begging him for a baby, but like most men he is scared to have a baby. He's afraid it will either make him "uncool," old, or fall terribly, terribly into debt.



* He's very very terrified of being in debt, which I might add is not a bad fear to have.



Anyway, one day I was once again trying to convince my dear husband that we needed a little Seth Jr to which he once again replied in financial talk. Basically, he said that we needed a certain amount of savings before we could think of having a baby. Now, I will say that I absolutely agree that financially, we're not ready for a baby. And I do agree that it will be much easier for me to take time from work and possible cut my hours completely if we had more in savings, so I applaud my dear husband for his financial goals! :) However, when I see my friend's babies, I don't really care about dollar signs - I just want a baby now, dang it! Okay, calm down....



So, Seth and I talked for several minutes about our financial plan and became excited about "living like we're poor" so we can have a baby and the more we save, the sooner we can have a baby. Then, Seth mentioned that at work I tend to go out to eat pretty often. After agreeing, I said, "Well, just say no to fast food. Except every once in a while, cause it's fun."



"No, no, no. We need to save EVERYTHING. So, basically, you can eat out....or you can have a baby."



"I think I'll take the baby," I said.



And with that....we went grocery shopping. But that shopping list is for another blog!

OK you know I love to read your hilarious posts. But when you told me about this at your house I thought I would die laughing. Later I talked to Chad about it and all he could say was "silly Seth...Sarah is 10 times more disciplined than him and she wants a baby way to bad for him to think that is a deterrent!" I think my hubby is right...lunchables or not Sarah is going to get herself a baby.

LOL -- tell Seth that you get a lot of free stuff when you have a baby. Maybe that will work.

By the way, I have your layout code ready whenever you want it.
