Fashion + Family Planning

If I had $100 for every time I was asked when I am having children, I'd already be living in the North End (or Pungo, depending on my mood). So when Alice surprised me with this little incentive, I couldn't help but tell her I'd think about it.

Aww! How can I not love this?

The funny thing is, this is not the first time a Curtin family member has used fashion to push their agenda on me. Dave once tried to convince me that the fastest way to go from slothfest to obsessive runner was buying myself a nice jogging outfit from a running magazine. I told him that 1) I don't want to run and 2) I am not motivated by fashion. But a year later I ran 2 miles with him. He told me my face was so red that I should probably walk for a while.

So, ladies with babies, what little trinket motivated you to plunge into maternity?

Why don't you just let JBB wear that?

(In my best therapist voice:) KW, what I hear you saying is that I don't have to have a baby right now. I really appreciate your support.

Also, we bought Bobito some onesies when he got fixed (to keep him from biting his incision). He was way too long for them. Darn.

Ruthie, I hear what you are saying, but lets be real -- Baby bone, it just may be about your time.

You're getting a lot of comments on this one...I think people are jumping on the Alice Curtain train and trying to tell us something

Thank you Alice for this onesie, it's going to come in handy in 5-10 years...
