Last Summer I began to feel what many women call “baby fever.” I talked to my husband about my feelings and his only reply was, “I don’t want to have a kid until I’m 30.”
At the time we were both 27.
We always said we would start trying to have kids after 5 years of marriage. We will be married 6 years in October.
Our current plan is to have our first child in 2012, if God willing, and the world doesn’t end like the Mayan’s predicted.
As we pray for this transition as a family, I can’t help but think about my role as a mommy. How do I juggle the role of mommy, wife, creative arts coordinator, friend?
Will I want to work full time? Part time? No time? It is such a struggle for women to find that balance. Maybe it is never balanced!
So often we try to figure out what’s next before next is even present. In the meantime, I will continue to work on my relationship with God, my husband and growing my skills and talents in my career.
Whatever unfolds during this next transition in my life, I want to do it well. To be able to turn the page without regret, looking back or wishing for something different.
What family/life transitions are you currently experiencing as a woman?
How can we pray for you as you navigate these transitions?
