This weekend, when Matt and I were in Chicago and got to meet Clare Leisinger, the beautiful daughter of our friends Jon and Natalie Leisinger. As we were standing there catching up, Jon asked us when we were going to “pop one out.” Now that we are married, this question seems to arise with everyone. I responded by saying that it was going to be a while – we aren’t quite ready to have a child of our own. Matt never even held a baby.
With that Jon grabbed the beer our of Matt’s hand and replaced it with Clare. Matt wasn’t quit sure what to do or where to put his hands. He stood there, awkwardly grabbing this 6 month old baby, his level of discomfort painfully obvious on his face. Well, it didn’t take Clare long to realize that she was in the arms of someone who wanted nothing to do with her. She promptly started to cry and reach out for her parents. Matt was near tears as well, so I quickly replaced the baby with his bottle of Oktoberfest beer.
Once Clare was back with her parents and Matt had his beer – all returned to a state of happiness.
Needless to say, we are not ready for children.
