Do You Believe in Magic?

Cowboy: So is it the magic time right now? Said without a trace of sarcasm.

Me: I don't know.

Cowboy: Come on, you know.

Me: No, I honestly don't. I haven't checked the monitor yet this morning, so I don't know. (See, I really did kick my BBT and charting habit).

Hours later, I still can't get it out of my head that after a year-and-a-half of trying to conceive and two miscarriages, my husband still manages to believe there is something slightly "magical" about trying to have a child.

And if you know anything about cowboys, you also know that the word "magic" generally isn't in their vocabularies.

What would I do without his unflagging optimism?

Ha, Ha, Ha! Mine is the same (and he is an MD, so should really know better). But he still believes it might just ... "happen."

Hopefully they know something we don't. But I still think its mostly a ploy to get some. :)

Hope Cowboy gets some!

So cute. (And horny!) But definitely sweet. He sounds like such an awesome guy!

Cowboys are your weakness?

And why wouldn't they be!!

I think your cowboy and my hunter are cut from the same cloth :)

Definitely a keeper. And a sweetheart.

Did you go back and buy those shoes yet?????????

SaraS-P said...

Yep. My husband's blind optimism is all that keeps us going.

awwww. I found that amazingly sweet (even if a little naive!)

Sticky Bun said...

The boys can be so good (and so optimistic) sometimes. Very sweet.

Lori said...

That is really sweet. My husband and I have spent many of our fifteen years together in the pursuit of a baby, and while the "magic" would definitely wane for me, it didn't for him! :)

I hope that magic is really magic very soon!!

P.S.- We have three living children, all conceived through the magic of fertility drugs.

You can never have enough optimism! Way to go cowboy=)

megan said...

Carrie said...

Magic time. That's a great way to see it.

My husband is also full of (misplaced?) optimism. Sometimes it annoys me but mostly I am happy that one of us is able to keep the spirits up.

I'm glad he's still optimistic. That's sweet. :)

Von said...

You better leave him in there but you could give him a good kick up the arse for me.............
Seriously over the whole thing right now.
