DH & I aren’t planning to TTC for another year or so, but I’m starting to panic. This isn’t a question of whether or not we want children. The problem is all of our friends and family members who have kids seem to be so negative about their post-baby lives. Yes, they say that children change everything and the love you feel for your child is all worth it, but there is always a disclaimer, something along the lines of “make sure you do everything you want to do now, because once you have a kid you won’t have fun anymore.” I know starting a family is going to open up a new chapter for us, but I’m getting worried that we haven’t finished writing the chapter of just the two of us yet. I also know there is never a perfect time for a baby, but I’m so fearful that we will regret not traveling more or doing other things that will be more difficult with kids. So Bees, can you relate or at least assuage my fears a bit? TIA!
