The Best Gift

I with (my) husband (have) got married (for) five years (already), but still not  “want to have” (any) child. (We being like this) not “is (because)” (we do) not want to  “want to have”  (a child), (it) really “is (because)” (our) work (is) too busy. I and husband both very like kids, every time, looking at friend’s family’s kids, (we) all (of every time) are thinking: how come they (are) that cute? But our jobs now really (are) both very painstaking, mainly “is (because)” work-overtime time (being) too long, sometimes weekends (we) also need to go to (the) office room.

(My) husband this year (is) 36, I (am) 33. We both (are) not young anymore, plus I want to “want to have” two kids: one “ge” (of) big brother, one “ge” (of) little sister. Last night I again with husband talked about “really quick” (the) thing (of) “wanting to have” (a) child, he too felt (that) we not can more over wait (anymore). So, I plan to from now (on) start to look for one “fen” (of) new job, change one “ge” (job that) work-overtime not (being) that much. (How about) (my) husband(?), (he will) start to look at houses, because we also need to change one “tao”(/suite) (of) bigger house, prepare-(with the result of preparing)-well (the) room for (our) child. I (have) already prepared-(with the result of preparing)-well to be (a) mother, I believe, (a) child will be the best gift (that) life gives us.
