we'll start the family band we always dreamed of.



I'm surrounded by pregnant friends and neighbors, newborn babies left and right, and do you know how many times I've been asked just this week when I'm going to have a kid? (atleast 6). Good thing I've never been one to fall for peer pressure or I might be like that psycho who just gave birth to a litter of eight.

Someday I'll (hopefully) announce that there's a human growing inside of me. Today's not that day, nor do we have foreseeable plans for when that day will be... just so you know.

But tonight I went to a baby shower (I gave her those adorable crocheted mary janes and flapper hat - made by Bonny, and for sale here). Now I'm at home sitting on my couch, listening to Clint and his friends play music upstairs. And I'm pretty sure I love hearing him sing about our future children and the family band we'll have.

Someday.

  1. I love the pic, for starters. And I love the ending to your post. Third, I love your post title. Oh yeah, and I love the idea behind the post. And did I say that I love your blog?

  2. If you need to borrow Clara, she's awesome on the harmonica. :)

    Cute shoes. I'm still sad that hat Bonny brought for Clara was too small.

  3. you make me seem much more sissy than i really am. while that song does mention the formation of a future hardison family band, it also uses the word "face-melting" pretty liberally.

    it's doesn't sound quite as cozy when you put it in context.

  7. Oh, another Bonny specialty. Some day I'll be able to afford her work, and then I'll commission her to make me one of everything: hat, scarves, even adult-sized booties. (Not really about the booties.)

    It's good to know you aren't folding under the pressure. When people up here ask me that, they are usually tired moms with no education who have never done much with their lives besides get married and be moms (not that there's anything WRONG with that...but it's NOT what I wanted with my life). So when they ask why I haven't had kids yet, I always say, "Because I don't want to end up like you."

    That's why I have no friends.

  8. Clint, no one who knows you could ever accuse you of being "sissy" or "cozy." Actually, "face-melting" about sums you up.

    Also, six people asked you this week? Nosy! And you kind of think it will stop once you've had one, but nope. Then everyone wants to know when you're having the NEXT one. And they'll start asking about 2 weeks postpartum. It's really fun.

  10. I'm getting annoyed at the baby question too. But even more so at those who ask if I'm pregnant if I say I don't feel well. Or those who feel the need to tell me it's my turn or that I need to get cracking. When did those type of questions and statements become ok? These strangers have no idea if I am infertile or just had a miscarriage. My procreation has absolutely nothing to do with anyone besides my husband and God.

    ok rant over.

    And I don't hate babies or pregnant women. Or baby showers.

    By the way, I'm Alicia Wach's sister. I went to your ward and admired the nicely done program layout and Alicia told me about you. Then Camille had you linked and since then you have sorta been my artistic hero. Beautiful work.

  11. I hope I didn't count in that 6, but I probably did. At least I can fit in the "wait as long as you possibly can" category. You can get out any baby desire over at my house. Personally, I'm terrified. I can't handle my husband. What makes me think I can handle a screaming tiny girl version of him?

  12. angela, have you ever eaten at noca?? we went there tonight for the first time and i immediately thought of you. it's a place i know you would appreciate. it was amazing! if you haven't yet, it is a MUST!

  13. we are just coming up on the two year mark, so that question comes up. actually it doesn't bother me (anymore).

    ugh, i have a photoshoot today. (cordae actually, you know her.) lets say the next half off day? what do you think?

  14. I think your Clint and my Paul are related! The face melting gave it away *winks*. Paul's a lead guitarist and teaches his trade as well. Interesting living with a musician isn't it?

    As for the pitter patter of little feet. I had one, one was enough. When your ready will be time enough. (Hugs)Indigo

  15. Hey! Totally know what you mean. Never thought I'd join the "pregnant club" this early, but here I am! Ha. I think once you're pregnant, you just become more curious to know when other people are planning to have to have kids and you just want everyone to be pregnant with you, so you're not pregnant alone :) but yea, I'd get so bugged with the baby questions!

    Those booties are so cute and so is your blog and pictures!

  16. "we'll start the family band we always dreamed of."

    i broke up with my last boyfriend after he made fun of me for dreaming of starting a family band. i thought it was such a normal and fantastic desire, he apparently did not agree. he thought i was from another planet.

    and here you are blogging about this very subject :) way to make my day!
