"Ready" Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

Me: Ready for babies?
Hubby: I'm ready! U?
Me: Sometimes I think I am! But sometimes I dunno. Right now feel like I am.
Hubby: Why don't you know?
Me: I dunno. Lol you ever feel unsure, but sure at the same time?
Hubby: Yep. Its the excitement of the possibility, but the fear of what it means. But I don't feel unsure.

Hubby's response led me to feel a little more confident about the decision that we have made to start a family.  I have heard many people say that they are going to wait until they are "ready" to have children or make some other life changing decisions. I am a planner so I do agree that you do have to make certain preparations, but waiting until you feel COMPLETELY ready may mean that you'll spend your whole life preparing, but never get to fulfil certain dreams that you may have. Make sense? defines ready as "completely prepared or in fit condition for immediate action or use".

I mean are we completely prepared? Who can answer that? I guess we can.

Are we in fit condition for immediate action or use? I believe so.

So even though we may not have our dream house yet or may not have saved as much as we wanted to, I think we're ready!

Well we believe we are - let's see what God has planned!


  1. Aww...almost made me tear up! I'm so excited!!! you will make an awesome mother!!! Cant wait for your "green bean"

  2. I knew it!!! I cannot wait to read every itty bitty detail. I'm following you, and PS thanks for following me at OKDan. I'm putting your button on my page, will you do the same.

  3. I remember having this conversation with my husband. I was told by many people that there is never a "right" time to have children. And I think that's true. Thanks for visiting my blog! We still have yet to decide on a name, we have a few candidates but I'm sure we'll be changing our minds a lot before we make the final decision.

  4. Can't wait for you to begin logging your journey into motherhood!!

  5. Thanks for your comments ladies! I do appreciate it!

    Lol what did you know Dani?

    I agree Mrs. V. Whenever God says "go" then that is the right time! ;)

    Ash and Jetara, be sure to come back and visit often!

  6. Ah, yes.. The "we're ready to have babies" talk. Mine was with my hubby in October of 2007, and I remember exactly where we were, what I was eating.. It's life changing! Two and a half years later and I'm a mommy!

    Had to drop by and say hi, mostly b/c of the title of your blog. I called my first baby "green bean" b/c my last name is Green, too. Best of luck to you! I'm following your blog now!

  7. Your blog design is fantabulous! Bailey did mine as well. :)

    I agree, there's never a "right" time to start trying. You'll never have enough money, enough anything lol.

    Good luck!

  8. It took us 2 years to conceive and now that we're finally here (31 weeks pregnant), I still think "omg am I ready for this?!". I know that it will all be ok and ready or not - he's coming :)

  9. Congrats on starting your journey to parenthood. I'll hopefully be right behind you soon.

  10. Girl I totally agree with this post.. If Gabe and I waited til we were "ready" we wouldn't have Riyya or had the opportunity to conceive Alyasaa'. So I thank God that he allows us to survive and the same will happen for you


I love reading your comments! Every bit of advice and input is helpful - trust me! :) I may not always have a chance to respond to every single comment, but I do read them all!
