Tick... Tick... BOOM!

I never wanted children.

Growing up I wasn't the type to play with dolls and imagine they were my babies, I didn't want to hold other people's kids nor did I do much babysitting. I believed in birth control, abortion, and avoided motherhood at all costs. I didn't dislike kids, but there was nothing better than being able to give them back to their parents.

Well, imagine my surprise when my biological clock more or less exploded last week. I don't know why or how, but I have babies on the brain! My period was 1 day late and I started freaking out thinking that I'd never be able to have kids - - God's cruel way of punishing me for avoiding them so much in my early 20s. Yes, I'm a bit over the top, outrageous and neurotic lately. I need to pop a pill and chill out.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying being a newly wed and have no plans on popping out babies anytime soon (my husband and I are thinking 2012), but I have been blown away by the fact that overnight I entered "mommy in training" mode.

You can say that I'm traditional in the sense that I always wanted kids after marriage... and having dated nobody prior to my husband that was marriage material, well - - it's no surprise that I didn't want kids lol. Now that I'm in a loving marriage I think it started to hit me that the most beautiful thing two people can do together is create another life - - and it's SO much more amazing of an experience when it's void of drama or chaos. I smile knowing that when my husband and I have kids they'll be the most loved kids in the world (and the cutest lol) and I'm counting down the days 'til we create our little clan of awesomeness.

When did the baby itch hit you? Have you managed to avoid it?
