Our office manager brought her little boy to work today. Her office is diagonal to mine so I've had a good view of him all morning. He is two and 1/2 and incredibly cute. Shaggy blond hair and cute little chunky legs. And don't get me started on the little baby feet. He is supposed to be watching a Winnie the Pooh video but every time I look up from my computer he's sitting there looking at me. And so I wave and then he smiles really big and waves and bounces around in his seat. And somewhere in the depths of my body my biological clock starts up....tick, tock, tick tock....aaarggh....turn if off!
We're not planning to have children for another four years or so. And I'm happy with that. But sometimes when I'm around a particularly adorable child I starting feeling it. Whenever I come home from visiting my niece and nephew I drive Andrew crazy with "When are we going to have a baaaaaaby?" And this was way before we ever got married.
So, I'm sitting here making eyes at the Office Baby and it's definitely affecting me. But then I think about being able to go home from work and do whatever I want. And meeting up with our friends in a few hours and spending a lazy Friday evening sipping beer on the patio of Front Page News. Maybe heading over to the Boom Boom Room later for drink. Sleeping late on Saturday morning. Going to an afternoon matinee. Doing whatever we please.
As much as I look forward to the future and having a family, sometimes the present is pretty dang good.
