Last night A. was in the kitchen making his lunch for work when he uttered the words, "we are not that couple, we are the childless couple". Oh. My. God. I thought we were passed all of this. He was joking. I know he was joking, but it stings none the less. I think it is his optimism, that is at fault here. He truly believes that we will be parents and therefore, doesn't see how these comments can hit home.
He is right about one thing. We are closer than we have ever been to being parents.
