A fellow social worker and military spouse that I follow posted on Instagram a picture of her new Lexus and her husband’s new motorcycle with the caption of (I’m paraphrasing) “Embracing being a DINK”
DINK being an acronym for Dual Income, No Kids
It got me thinking about my own life, since my husband and I are also DINKs
I find myself struggling to embrace our childless life lately, not because I want to have a baby right now, but because I’m worried that we might not be able to have children right away when we do decide we are ready. What if we wait until we are 28/29/30 to start trying, only to find out that one of us can’t have children, or that it might take years of trying to finally conceive?
A few of the bloggers I follow are currently going through infertility issues, and the whole topic scares me.
I wish there was a way to know now if we can conceive. So I could put my mind at ease and fully enjoy our time as DINKs.
Because there is so much to enjoy. Sleeping in, spending our money on fun toys, taking spontaneous vacations. I want to fully enjoy the phase of life that I am in right now, and not worry about the future phases as much.
