We’ve been getting asked about kids since we were engaged in 2015. We’ve been married a year and we’re still being asked (mostly by my mom who can’t wait to be a grandma!). We’re waiting until 2020 though.

I’m not getting married until 2020 and I’m getting asked. My Mother is especially obsessed.

Nobody asked us. Maybe because we were older (32/38) when we got married and were both career focused. Maybe because I used to always say that I’d adopt someday (I never imagined that I’d find a man to marry and have a kid with but wanted a family).  Maybe because Darling Husband had always said he didn’t want kids. 

When we told our families that we were pregnant right after our 2nd anniversary, they were shocked. My mom asked “was it an accident?” And she was so surprised when I told her that we’d been trying for nearly a year. 

I don’t know why people didn’t ask us. But I’m glad people left us alone.

First pressure to have kids happened at our wedding reception, and it wasn’t even directed at Darling Husband or me, but to my boss, who told me the hilarious story after the fact! The team I worked with at the time was small and close-knit, so they were all invited to the wedding and two of them, my boss included, were able to attend. At the reception she started chatting with my new husband’s grandmother and when Nana-in-law discovered that the woman she was talking with was my boss, she apparently said, “Please give LadyAna a raise so they’ll have a baby. I’m running out of time to be a great-grandmother!” I laughed so hard when she told me!
