Side Note:
For those who haven't figured it out, or haven't been here: The titles of most of the blogs here are song lyrics. If you google them, it should take you to the song and the song is good to listen to before, during, or after reading to help set the tone of the blog. I find music to be very cohesive with reading and writing.

Oh Baby Baby, Baby Baby!

What is it exactly about that four letter B word that makes men cringe? Why is it that one day late on our menstrual cycle and our men start turning green and looking like they are about to lose their lunch?
In history, men killed for children. Literally. King Henry VIII had wives divorced, beheaded, excommunicated his entire country from the Catholic church, and for what? For a male heir. So why is it then that nowadays the idea of a child sends men running?
I am, by no means, in a rush to have children. I think they are beautiful and a blessing, but I'm not ready to stop playing video games and doing whatever I want with m husband when I want yet either, but at the same time I can sit back, relax and think about when I am ready and look forward to it.
Not hubby though. I bring it up and he looks ill and terrified and explains to me how not ready he is. He says he knows we'll make beautiful babies but he doesn't think he's going to be ready for a long time. He then proceeds to explain to me how as a man it was ingrained into him that having kids ruins everything and it means your life as a free man is over and there is no fun or good times for you once you have a child.
I understand that he wants to be a father someday, but its hard to not take it personally when he acts like the idea is just so absurd and nauseating. I mean, what if we had a "happy surprise?" Clearly it wouldn't be the end of the world, but I mean, if all of you gentlemen in the world want to abstain from children so badly then I suggest you abstain from the process too. How's that sound?
