I posted a girl-only post this morning that David and I had *talked* about having a baby. This is the first and only LJ post I have ever regretted.

The operative word here is *talked* -- we TALKED about a baby. This talk has happened before and will probably happen again. No one is getting pregnant tomorrow -- not at my house anyway -- and things probably won't progress in that direction until MUCH later this year or early next.

I appreciate all the thoughts, warnings and advice. But please -- no more. I am not changing my career, giving up my lifestyle, imagining perfect smiling babies who don't shit or get sick, or anything like that. I am also not asking anyone to talk me *into* having a kid -- I will know when I ready, if ever.

Side note -- it is, I assure you, perfectly possible to balance baby and career. I have seen it -- successfully -- a number of time. It is also possible to travel with kids, eat in restaurants, eat things other than cheeseburgers and PB&J, and own nice things. Lots of people do it. I am lucky enough to know a number of them.

Everyone calm down. And, for now, I am done talking about this, unless I ask you first.
