Commitment

21 Feb

Last night, we were watching the movie Eat Pray Love (horrible) and there was a quote that I really liked:

“Having a baby is like having a tattoo on your face. You kind of want to be committed.”

I’m in the phase of my life where a LOT of people in my social circle are having children, and it’s been difficult for me not to get caught up in the excitement and want the same thing. Luckily I have a consistently rational husband who reminds me from time to time that what’s right for other people isn’t necessarily right for us, right now.

And when I really think about it, I’m totally not ready for a tat on my face.
