Fatima Snowden-Sanchez Sim Days 41 - 43

It's currently Winter of 2008 and Fatima is 26, Mansur 27

I sit here stuffing my face and reflecting on how I ended up here. Well, I should say how Mansur and I ended up here.

I spent six days of vacation filled with my mom breathing down my back. Asking when and if we planned on having children. She stressed the word "when" enough times to know that she wants a grandchild, like, yesterday.

We are perfectly happy with our life right now. We're young working our way up our chosen careers. And we've only been married for five years. We decided that we aren't ready for little babies yet.

Obviously my biological clock didn't agree. A few weeks after returning from Florida I woke up at 4 am and headed straight for the toilet. At first I thought it could have been the sushi from the night before. It did smell kinda rip. But then it dawned on me that I hadn't had my visit from "Aunt Flow," and I knew something was up.

A trip to the pharmacy and a few minutes of waiting in the bathroom told me all I needed to know. I was pregnant. Well, there went my life plan, lol.

I told Mansur. He was shocked to say the least. "How did this happen?" "When?"

"Well it could have been that one time..."

"Or the night when we got home from vacation."

Either way he was thrilled! And soon as there was a little bump to announce to the world that there was a tiny life growing inside of me, Mansur couldn't keep his hands off my stomach. Silly man, lol.


  1. Awww, I'm sure they'll be great parents, even if they weren't quite ready yet.

  2. I think they will too! And I'm so excited. I've been waiting for them them to get pregnant, and it took forever, lol.


Thanks for taking the time to read and post! You guys are Awesome!
