Ticking Clocks

As I get older, the number of women I know who are hearing their maternal clocks ticking away gets higher and higher. Some may have already succeeded after years of trying while others are just beginning to look at the negative sign on a pregnancy stick with that rinsing of disappointment and others still are holding out for that perfect timing when the right amount of money, the right guy, the right job and everything else are all lined up. I saw these beautiful pictures by E.B. Sylvester whose images not only make me want to jump on the very next plane to Mozambique but also remind me of the sound: tick tock, tick tock.

These are wonderful photos. Do you actually want kids, or do you feel like your biological self wants a baby? I hope that made sense :-)

Yeah - I would like kids ONE DAY. I don't feel the rush right now so I'm just taking it as it goes :-)

It's funny that you talk about the ticking clock. Mine is ticking right now, and I love kids and definitely want them. The recession is making it difficult to even think about having a baby. I have found myself in a deep depression the last few days as I read about the market, and it becomes more and more clear that this is just not the right time to bring a baby into the world...but yet, my clock keeps ticking.
