One question that we’ve been getting a lot of these days is “Are you guys done having kids?”
This is a toughy.
We just don’t know.
Maybe? Probably? Possibly?
Again, we just don’t know.
There are days that we think that we are for sure done. And others that we’re not so sure.
The other night was particuarly rough with Nonny waking up like several times to nurse, Bitzy had 2 different accidents in her bed and Brother was partying in his room at 3:00am like it was 1999.
Zach said at 4:20am, “If I ever mention having another kid punch me in the face.” (That is a direct quote).
But then there are magical days where everyone is rested, happy and awesome in general and we think, “Hmmm…one more would really be great.”
So this morning I was reading to all three of my sweethearts in our favorite “big white chair” and there were smiles all around. We were laughing, snuggling and having so much fun.
I said, “Oh guys, I just love you all so much. Do you know that? Do you know how much Mama loves you?”
Brother: “DIS MUCH, TO VA OON AH BATCH!”
Bitzy: “OH MAMA! I LOVE YOU TOO WITH MY WHOLE HEART!”
Nonny: “MMMMM, OOOOOO, AAAAA!”
Bitzy: “YA KNOW MAMA, I THINK WE NEED ONE MORE BABY. MAYBE A LITTLE BOY BABY SO THAT BROTHER WON’T BE LONELY.”
Me: Oh really, does that sound good?
Bitzy: YEAH, ACTUALLY I THINK TWINS SOUND THE BEST. YUP, TWINS FOR SURE! I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE TWO TINY BABIES SOMEDAY!”
Me: Oh my! Don’t you think that would be a lot of work?
Bitzy: NO MAMA. DON’T WORRY, I’M THREE AND I’LL TAKE CARE OF THEM. YOU DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT. OKAY MAMA? DON’T YOU WORRY ABOUT A THING SWEETIE PIE DELICIOUS. I’LL BE THE BEST BIG SISTER EVER! YOU CAN JUST RELAX. ACTUALLY, YOU TAKE CARE OF BROTHER BECAUSE HE’S A WILD CHILD AND I’LL TAKE CARE OF THE BABIES. SOUND LIKE A PLAN STAN?”
Me: Well in that case! Bring on the babies!
Have a great day friends!
