Crazy Kids

If we are friends on facebook you might have seen this already but it was just to crazy not to share. Last night the kids and I were in the living room and I'm not really sure how this conversation started but it was crazy! Monkey stated that he wanted me to have another baby. This is a weird comment from him but that can of worms was then opened. All the kids chimed in saying they wanted another baby. Oh heavens crazy kids. I asked the kids if they really wanted me to get big, fat, and sick again, it was a resounding YES. Then I told them that they would be old enough to have to change diapers and that even made them happy. What is wrong with these kids?!? I said a new baby would cry and need mommy ALL. THE. TIME. they didn't care. They really have no idea what adding another baby to our family would be like and it is a good thing they don't have any say in it! At one point GG said she wanted me to have another baby because her best friend has 5 kids in her family and she wanted to be the same and then Monkey said he wanted me to have two more babies so that we could beat their family with more people. To which sparked GG's twin comment. It was just a silly and crazy topic that actually made me nervous even thinking about adding another baby. I started sweating and my body starting hurting thinking about carrying another baby in my stomach. I love the 4 kids I have with all my heart but I really am truly content to leave it with only having the 4 of them :) My body has been through way too much stuff in the last few years it is too old to have another baby. Even though I am only 31 my body is not.

Kids are funny that way. Even though we have seven, the youngest ones kept asking for another baby. I told them I was too old. They finally they gave up on that line of reasoning and tried, "But we can adopt." Children are a blessing and we don't regret any of ours. I can't imagine life without them.

Ha! That sounds like my boys. They are always telling me they want another baby. So weird. They are the only boys I know that LOVE babies so much. It is kinda cute. ;)

Oh, I so totally hear you. I'm content and often overwhelmed with four kids! Maybe I'll feel differently in a few years, but I definitely don't want to birth anymore kids!

Before the surgery I was okay with not having any more kids but as soon as I realized that the possiblilty was completely gone, I was sad. I cried the other day when I saw how many mothers were pregnnat all of the sudden when I went to pick up Grant from preschool. They all started to show recently. It's funny because I can't handle the one's I have, I'm crazy and I'm pretty sure I'm an awful mother, but I still long for another, and another, and another.....I'm almost positive I will adopt after we get our home built and we get settled. Amen on pregnancy being a total pile of poo though!

Too funny.....I suppose the older ones do know what it means for a new baby to arrive in the house....cute that they would seemingly be excited for that...

Funny how kids think!!;) At least it's comforting to know they like their siblings and would welcome more!!!:)
