To recap, I stay home all day in our little one bedroom apartment. I’m looking for work, with no luck yet, and more often than not, I’m bored. Yup, I said it. I admit it. After a jam-packed and turbo-tracked college career of a double major in three years, I now have nothing to do but cook, clean, and search for work.
So yea, I’m a bit bored.
Yesterday at my most bored time of day (2-3pm), I got an email. (woohoo!)
As a newlywed, I’m subscribed to thenest.com’s email newsletter. It’s a cute little website with all sorts of resources for newlyweds like me (and maybe you if you’re reading this!). But this one in particular seemed to border on the “crazy-girl” side of things.
It seemed innocent enough. It was about babies, as many of the emails are. And babies are cute and sweet, right?
(at least in this case…)
Because this email wanted me to upload pictures of my hubby and I to get a picture of what our future baby will look like!
If I’ve learned anything from movies like “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days,” and “He’s Just Not That Into You,” it’s that doing something like that is the easiest and fastest way to freak out whatever guy you’re trying to convince to have a baby with you in the first place.
Let’s face it.
Most guys think babies look funny, smell funny, and cost a lot. (All of which are a little true, or a lot true, if we’re all honest here.)
So showing them a picture of your future hypothetical baby? Not the best turn on you could come up with.
Don’t get me wrong. I want babies. My husband wants babies. Just not right now. And I agree.
So why was I itching to push that button and upload my images?
Does it mean I’m secretly one of those girls?
Does it mean I have “baby fever”?
I’m going to go with the idea that it’s just because I’m so bored here by myself.
And…I’m going to post the link. Just in case you are tempted too.
So let me know what your babies will look like, because I KNOW not all of you will be able to resist the temptation.
Or at least I hope so, because I’m still holding out on giving in, but I’d really like something new to look at around 2:00 today.
