10 things I'd be thinking if I got preggo

If I got pregnant at this point in my life, here are the things that would run through my head:

1. Shit.

2. HOW did I lose the bet that my sister would be the first one to get knocked up?

3. When do babies' motor skills kick in so they can wrap their fingers around a bottle of wine and deliver it without dropping it?

4. I foresee money being a slight problem. Do babies really NEED things like cribs and formula and dental care? Because Mommy NEEDS TiVo, Cole Haan and Mana.

5. Oh em gee, what if I have a baby with red hair? Damn Dave and his recessive ginge genes.

6. I don't care how ridiculous this sounds, I WILL pluck my Italian baby's unibrow.

7. I vow to never bring my massive, obnoxious stroller on a crowded bus...

8. ...However, I might bring my obnoxious stroller into a crowded bar.

9. If you don't like your baby, can you trade it in for a pair of shoes or a nice restaurant gift card?

10. Goodbye, sleep. God, I'll miss you. More than you'll never know.

Dear birth control: I love you.

There are literally 10 babies from people within a 50 foot radius of where I sit at work. They're everywhere...

Marie: I hear ya!

Brick: Yeah, because you can probably picture it happening... Along with a visit from Child Protective Services.

Allie: They are definitely taking over the world. I love my friends' babies and the occasional co-worker baby, but the random ones on buses? NO. DOES NOT BELONG.
