The "KIDS" Question
It seems that since we've been married more than 2 years now, have a place of our own (finally!)and even more especially since the birth of our cute niece Hadley, we can't avoid the "kids" question. "When are we going to see a little Josh walking around?" "So now that you have a house, you're making a nursery for your Jr. Becca, right?" Usually, people get the usual answers to these questions from Josh, such as "Oh, crap, honey, did you leave baby in the trunk again?", "Picturing Becca as fat, hormonal and pregnant makes me throw up", or "Didn't you know, we have a kid, he's just ugly so we leave him in the closet". Usually people quit asking us after a while.
So for all of you wondering why after 2 years we don't have kids (gasp!), I've come to the conclusion that we're scared to death, probably because of the usual reaction I get from a small child. Case in point:

I really am that upsetting!

(This one may be my favorite, as I am getting the world's worst crusty. Who knew i could be so disgusting to a one month old baby!)


Sadly, though, I am not alone in my quest to be hated by all children. Our dear friend Kaycee (pictured with Kaden below) really took the opportunity to tell Josh how she really felt a while ago. Conversation was as follows:
Josh: "Kaycee, do you like the fireworks?"
Kaycee: "Yeah. You're ugly"

Yah... we've been getting the kids question for a long time too... thankfully Russ had a kid so we're off the hook now. Five years and still counting!! :o)

I always tell everyone "I am waiting for Cathy" It's worked for over 3 years now. You can borrow that same excuse if you need.

Don't you love the 2 cents people give! My new favorite is people finding out that we do have a baby and saying "So, how long have you been married?" It doesn't matter if you waited or not or had a surprise (like us, lol), there are those who think they know best!!

Yes, next time you're asked that question, you could just say that you're not able to have kids because their necks would be so big they would burst out of your belly. Silly Becca.

Becca...you crack me up! That was hilarious! But don't worry, I felt the same way about kids too before I had my own! No matter what you do, your own baby will love you to pieces! Funny thing is, I got on here to invite you to a Children's Book show...I'm holding a party next week and thought even though you don't have kiddies YET...you still might be interested! Their books are awesome! Check out my latest post it you're interested! Hope to see you there! Plus, we need to come visit sometime soon...I would love to see your new place...and nursery! :)
