Hey, do you know what causes that?


A very typical question from people who are startled by our almost baseball team of children.

After talking to many looky-loos and rubberneckers--
I have never met anyone who wished they had less children.
Almost across the board, when people look back, they almost all wish that they had had more.


Touché

So true... I get the same thing and I always say... I never want to be one of those women who gaze in sadness and wish....

I hate that question. I get it to and I only have three. I also hate are you going to have more? As they look at me condescendingly that I won't stop or that I am not happy with the ones I have because they are all boys. I have learned to take it in stride and tell them I love my kids but I want to give the reality stars a run for it.

I love that!! Everyone was over-the-moon for our first pregnancy...they were happy about the second...by the third, people often said, "Another one?!"
And I think people need to mind their own business!! I love my three!! Good for you!

Whose taxes will be paying for all the gov. programs they want? Your children's! We are from 6 and that was considered small among the Catholic crowd we grew up in! You go mama! Have 10!!!! ;)
