"When are you two having babies?"
"wow 5 years, when are kids happening"
"don't you wanna be a mom"
"make sure you don't wait too long now, no one wants to be in their late 30s having babies"
It truly sets my heart on fire when people begin asking questions about my reproductive health. Why is it any of your business when I plan to pop out a baby? I understand that in todays society we're super interested in peoples lives and we can be nosey when people choose to stop showing certain aspects of their lives on social media but just because I don't share it doesn't mean you get to ask when I plan to pop out a child. What if we were struggling to get pregnant? What if there was something medically wrong with me that prevented me from carrying a child to term? Or what if, I had been pregnant and lost the pregnancy?
I feel like we never truly know whats going on in someones personal life so we don't get to ask questions we wouldn't want to answer if the roles were switched. I'm 28, still young enough to travel the world and figure out who I am and what I want to do. My life is no less because I don't have children yet - they will come when the time is right for us. We have so many goals to accomplish, places to see and when I feel like I am ready to be a mom full time and live the life I have envisioned for my child I will do so. So with that being said, cut the shit and don't ever ask me when I plan to have babies. You'll know when I'm ready because I have the perfect pregnancy announcement up my sleeve when the time comes.
Ok now that the hard topic is out of the way lets talk about something more fun - the outfit! I ordered these mom jeans from gap for a whopping $15.29 on super duper sale and they don't quite fit the way I want them to but a good tailor will have me right as rain in no time. I have also taken to tucking in my shirt to show off my smaller waist and wow, what an instant confidence booster. I haven't felt comfortable enough to tuck in my shirt since I was in high school and while I still have a pooch its smaller than where I started so I'm hella proud to show off how far I've come.
In other news I have my first big girl sponsored post coming up on Instagram that makes sense to me and my brand - so be on the lookout for that. I am also traveling next week to somewhere I've never been and ahhh I have so many ideas that I finally feel excited and creative about so feel free to keep up with me!
