Dear Furture Child,
A lot of my friends are pregnant, just had a baby, are about to have babies, or have more than one child. And yet... here we are... without you. I admit it... sometimes when I see a cute lil' peanut I want to have one NOW and then they start screaming and my baby needs are cured for the moment. Sometimes I feel as though they STARE (yes the babies) at me like "You know you want to have one..." and I do... just not now. But please don't think that we don't think about you... we do. We even frequent the phrase, "when we have kids". Because it is not a matter of if it is a matter of when. We just haven't felt that the time is right. Most people think we are nuts or that there is something wrong with us for waiting this long. We will know when it's time. And it isn't yet... but soon. And soon is very relative so we don't know exactly when "soon" will be.
I really hope you turn out to be cute. I mean... I am sure I will think you are cute. I just hope no one has to lie to me about you being cute (no offense). But really though I wonder what you will look like. Will you have curly hair like your dad? Or straight as an arrow hair like me? Will you get your dad's gorgeous eyes? Or my plain ol' brown ones? I really hope you get curly hair and your dad's eyes. Sorry if you get mine. I can't really help that.
If you are a boy... I appologize in advance for all the shopping I will make you do. I also apologize for not liking some of your girlfriends... because let's face it... I am picky... and girls are trouble. I don't appologize for telling you "I love you" in front of your dudes. Honestly it's something I am really looking forward to. I have to make up for all the times you will ruin one of my outfits.
If you are a girl our bank account is really going to suffer (and we are already well aware of it)- your dad says you are going straight to the nunnery (He has also told me that you are a girl then he gets a cool old car).... I think we can hold off until you are at least 16. I apologize for making you wait to wear makeup until you get to high school. You can get your ears pierced whenever but nothing else. And no, you cannot go to Winter Formal with the cutest boy in class before you are 16 (in case you were wondering). Also, I will not apologize for the embarrassing baby photos I will be showing your first boyfriend. It's my packback for your sassy teenaged years. P.S. I really hope you like pink... it's my favorite.
Soon... but not yet
