Oh Josh...

Honey, sometimes you say the cutest things to try to make me feel better and I definitely give you an "A" and a smile for effort.

Here's the story devoted blog readers (whom I love, BTW):

Wednesday night Josh and I had dinner with my BFF, Teresa and her boyfriend, Bryan. Teresa has 2 children; a boy, Anthony, who is 10 and a girl, Isabelle, who is 8 or 9. We somehow got on the topic of a pumpkin patch. Teresa shares with me that it is a tradition in her household to go to a pumpkin patch every year and each person gets their own pumpkin to decorate and/or carve. I shared that I have never been to a pumpkin patch but that I want to go so bad. I think it would be an awesome experience and have always wanted to go. The only pumpkins I ever had were from the front of Kroger that I begged my mom for when we went grocery shopping and when an old friend went and got a bunch of them and I decorated them with her and her child in 2007.

My dear, sweet husband turns to me and says "don't worry, you can experience it with our kid next year". Oh honey, if only I could believe that. I certainly do hope you're right but to be realistic here: The kid at most (if I were to get pregnant right now) would be 3 months old (and that may even too old, I don't feel like doing math right now). I don't think taking a 3 month old to a pumpkin patch is exactly what I had in mind. Thanks for trying though. It really did make me smile and feel a bit better because that is just one more thing that I can add to my list of reasons why I can't wait to be a mother.

So, I'm shooting for a 2012 pumpkin patch trip where baby and I can share the experience for the first time together! Sounds good, right? :)


  1. Sounds good to me! I'm rooting for you hun!

  2. I have the same dream of a pumpkin patch. My friends with little ones were talking about it all last week and I so wanted to go. But, I feel like that is something I'm saving for my children.

    And, your husband is so sweet. Our poor husbands. They are a bit clueless at times, but so well meaning with comments like that you have to give them all the credit in the world.
