Whose Bringing up Baby?

Babies, babies everywhere! I realized, over the past two weeks of being at “home” with my folks, that the universal discussion topic is babies. Whose having babies, whose expecting babies, whose making babies, whose buying gifts for babies, whose who is who? From celebrities to friends and relatives, bring on the babies.

Living away from home, babies are not the topic. The majority of our friends are people who have houses, cars, bikes, wine collections, art collections, but not babies.

My life makes even less sense to folks here because we keep moving and traveling and doing projects but not having babies. "Your husband is in London and you're here and then you're going to be in DC and then you are going to be there..." pregnant pause, thought bubble when are you going to make babies?
