now it’s just becoming ridiculous

There’s a running joke in my church that goes something like this:

If you’ve been dating someone for three months, people wonder why you’re not engaged –
If you’ve been engaged to someone for three months, people wonder why you’re not married –
If you’ve been married to someone for three months, people wonder why you’re not pregnant.

It’s great fun.

On the whole, it’s just what I said it was – a joke. But people take the baby thing pretty seriously around there, and I’m not kidding.

I have my own little personal joke about “baby season” at the church.

Now, at any given moment, it seems as if there are at least 5 or so pregnant women in our congregation of about 1,000 attenders. But when baby season hits, all bets are off, and I mean it.

Just today I learned of 3 four (see comments) different women who are expecting – one of whom is expecting twins!

It’s like, in the water or something. I literally need my toes to count all the women within the church who have buns in their ovens.

I can just feel it, pretty soon it’s going to branch out of just my church circle, and either my best friend or one of my sisters-in-law are going to tell me that they too, are expecting.

    If it makes you feel any better:
    I have been married for 8 months and haven’t had a baby – and I can 100% guarantee that I won’t be pregnant in the next 8 months either.

    You and Mrs. C. on the other hand… October. :)

    L. It just shows that christians like sex (in the proper context of course.) who ever said they were prudes. They obviously don’t know what they are talking about.
