But I'll be honest a teeeny, tiny part of me wished I was a mom already. I mean Philip and I want kids, we said we would wait until we were married 3 years until we had kids and honestly that is still the plan. But, my baby fever is ever growing.
Just look at my PinterestVisit Mary-Keith Piasecki's profile on Pinterest.
And then I got a dog.
And I realized, holy crap, this is not easy. I have to be thinking about another living thing's bodily functions, sleep, food intake, and general happiness all the time!
Don't get me wrong, she is cutest most precious dog that has ever been. Everything she does it the cutest. Her little bark, her tiny nose, the way she prances, the brown over her eyes. Everything. I love that little dog. Every time she cries when she's in the crate I have to almost literally run out of the house so I don't cave and take her out.
But part of me is disappointed that the part of my life being carefree and selfish is over. We don't got more than an 5 minutes without talking about her. When she ate, how she slept, if she needs to go out, if she's eating enough, how cute she is, who she loves more.
It never ends. I don't know if I am quite ready to be always thinking about another little life. I kinda wanna be selfish for a while long.
But I say that now and then I continue pinning into the wee hours of the morn the what to pack in my hospital bag and the c-section rates of the local hospitals. (btw the way...40%)
Were you ready for motherhood? Do you have a dog?
