    Cute: Show it to him!

    Crazy: This is the kind of thing you keep to yourself.

    CUTE! If he knows how nerdy you are and loves you even more regardless, I say, “Do it!”

    It’s funny and makes light of rationalizing a serious and important decision. I <3 it!

    I think it all depends on your relationship (which I believe several posters have already mentioned >.<). Best of luck with whatever you choose! 🙂

    It depends on your relationship I think, if you feel like it won’t freak him out then by all means show him. But you could always just verbally explain all your points to him, and show a chart if he requests more clarification on how the dollars and cents are going to work out.

    Does he not want a child now or something? Seems like you are trying very hard to win him over on this one and maybe he’s just not ready?

    I think it’s a great idea!  I’m sure your SO already knows and appreciates your sense of humor.  Go for it!

    I love to laugh and be silly but I vote taking a somewhat more serious/straightforward approach to the baby conversation. It’s a pretty big deal!

    I’d probably broach the subject in conversation first rather than a “Ta-Da! Baby Presentation Time!”

    Then if he seems open to the idea but still has questions, you can totally show him it (but like a few days later so it’s not too weird that you already have it together). Otherwise it might totally catch him off-guard and you might not get the reaction you were hoping for. Let the idea be in his head for a while because YOU may be thinking about it a lot recently but there’s no guarantee he has.

    I vote cute but I personally think it is crazy in a cute kind of way. If I showed Fiance something like that he would think I am crazy but he knows I am like that so he would think it was cute also… if that makes any sense LOL. Can I see it???

    @Mollytov: “I’m ready to start trying for a baby. How do you feel about that?”

    It sounds a little clinical, but it definitely gets the point across in a concise and straightforward manner while still taking your partner’s feelings into consideration.

    Totally depends on your relationship, but personally I’d prefer that my fiance just sit me down and have an adult conversation, not a presentation.  This isn’t the right way to approach the topic for the very first time IMO.  But that’s just me!

    It would totally work with my husband because he researches the crap out of everything he does.
