Gym Hottie and I never planned on the life we now live. I doubt he would ever agree to share his bed with another dude next to his wife nor would he ever touch a cloth diaper. Life changed when we knew we made a baby out of love or perhaps a night of regularly scheduled partying. Either reason, we’re here, we’re married, we’re parents, and we love it.
Here is how it all began:
Halloween 2008 Met at the gym in college, hence his moniker Gym Hottie. “Are you done using that?” were the first words he chose to utter to me.
2008-2009 Pre-funking at 7 pm and dirty dancing in bars.
Super Bowl 2009 Officially change our Facebook relationship status.
2009-2010 Mutually agree that marriage and kids are not in our future; continue partying.
June 2010 Gym Hottie moves in; Humnoy is conceived.
August 2010 Begin planning a shotgun wedding.
September 25th, 2010 Get hitched; four months pregnant!
March 13, 2011 Day we became a family – Humnoy’s birth.
September 25th, 2012 Married two years with a funny and sweet toddler and expecting another one. Holy shit!
We went from Drunkard Weekend Warriors to Natural Parenting Enthusiasts defying all those societal ideas that scared us away from marriage and having children – all on our own terms. Both sure are difficult and sobering at times, but it is the most humbling and rewarding. I have someone, who has always complemented my choices and decisions – then and now. It wasn’t Last Call when we ‘gave in’ to marriage and kids because our party has just begun. \m/
