Tick, tick, tick

I have been surrounded by babies lately.  With new arrivals in both families (mine & Chad’s) in the past week, chatting with a pregnant cousin over the weekend, and a visit at work from a former employee (I have her old job) and her little boy, I can’t escape the baby craze.

Not that I mind.  There’s nothing sweeter than snuggling a tiny baby, and nothing funnier than a little baby belly laugh.  But it’s making me wish I had one too.  I do (kind of) wish that Chad & I had had a baby.  I can’t imagine trying to raise a child on my own though.  And there are days when I’m feeling particularly selfish or lazy or sad that I’m glad that we didn’t.  Parenthood is such a massive responsibility; I just can’t imagine taking it on by myself.

I’m beginning to hear a faint ticking in the back of my head.  I’m too young for my biological clock to be ticking, right?
