Having an Ask Saab segment on my blog may seem like I’m asking for it (pun intended), but I still get this question on the regular. I thought the question would have died when I wrote about it before but, obviously, not everybody reads my blog (only you cool kids know about this magical place on the Interwebz *winkwink*).
All your life, there’s a constant questioning from all your titas, titos, pinsan sa puntod — I MEAN TUHOD, kakilala sa college, ex-girlfriend ng kabarkada mo nung high school ka, SM saleslady, BASTA KUNG SINO SINO.
“Wala ka pang boyfriend?”
“Kailan kayo ikakasal?”
“Bakit wala pa kayong baby?”
“O, hindi niyo pa ba susundan yang panganay niyo?”
“Wala ka pang apo?”
HOW ABOUT A “HOW ARE YOU” PO??
Since people started asking us this question, Jim and I have learned to always just answer with a vague “siguro in 2 years pa po.” We’re lucky if they just nod and let it go but sometimes we’re met with disbelief as if we owe it to them to put a baby inside me as soon as we possibly can.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: not everybody gets married just to have children. Jim and I exchanged our vows almost 3 years ago and we’ve done pretty amazing things since then.
We brought up a beautiful bear who turned 5 this year
We’ve travelled to so many wonderful places
We started two businesses together
We’ve crossed milestones with Cheats
We also got to spend a lot of time with our family and friends, which I think is very important in keeping our relationship strong.
Out of all the great things we’ve done in our married lives, I think the greatest thing that Jim and I have ever done is…
We made a baby.
Or two. Now will you stop asking?😅
