Fiscal prioritizing. All of the sudden trying the hottest restaurant, buying the newest seasonal fashion trends and planning the next vacation are no longer priority.

Totally not grossed out. Vomiting, pooping, boogers and drooling are no big deal. People love holding babies. We specifically visit babies for the opportunity to hold them, seeing our friends and family is collateral. There's nothing better than that perfect baby smell and soft baby skin as you cuddle your new mini best friend. But, all things come to a crashing halt when your adorable bestie spits up all over your favorite cashmere sweater. There's usually a quick pass off to mommy and a run to the bathroom to try and minimize the damage. When you respond by giggling and shrug that you've been in dire need to bring the sweater for a good dry cleaning anyway, that's a serious moment of truth.

Jealousy (much like imitation) is the sincerest form of flattery. Every toddler, baby, pregnant lady and stroller in your line of sight is noticed.

People who want to have babies follow baby blogs....ehem...watch television shows about babies and awkwardly stare at every baby and pregnant lady that crosses their path.

or you saw in yourself when the time was right?
