Can YOU resist the temptation? And other thoughts on hypothetical babies.

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’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.

  1. Ok. This is getting crazy! Melissa, bored? I guess I can understand though. If this semester ended and I was married, without a job, and was in a new apartment while most of my “crafty” stuff still resided at my parents’ house, I’d probably get bored too and have to find some new projects. Maybe I’ll send you some projects to do for me that I don’t have time for … when I think of one, or think of something I need someone to design or plan for me, you are going to be the likely candidate, okay? 😉

  2. Sorry! I know being bored is not like me at all, but when I’m stuck here all day feeling bad because no one will hire me, I get lonely and bored.
    I’ll be back to my own self soon, hopefully.

  3. Nice post, I’ve just had a baby boy myself.

  4. I nearly fell over laughing at this. I thought only I felt this kind of temptation with it.
    I’m not gonna click the link, I’m not gonna click the link, I’m not gonna click the link…

    • I know! The temptation is still there, and I’ve yet to see any of these hypothetical babies. But I KNOW some people have done it. They’re just not fessing up.
