And to think we weren't going to have children

I have a confession to make: Andy and I did not want kids. Ever. Then one morning I woke up and thought I would absolutely die if I did not have a baby to dress up and take to church. Thus Mia.

I have another confession to make. After Mia was born we were done. Andy was really, really done and I was sorta done although I couldn't reconcile the fact that Mia would grow up and have no one to help her move us into the nursing home. Thus Bode.


And somehow these two little rugrats have come into our lives and made us complete.

The comment about having Bode to help Mia move you you into a nursing home made me laugh!

Four's a complete set in our book, too! Sometimes I think I want more than two kids and then I remember how my son was constipated, teething, sick, and had a rash all over his entire body and wouldn't sleep and I am like...hmmm, enough energy for one more I would say!

That is the same as Kenyon and I. Right now we are in the middle about having a second child - somedays its a definite YES - others it's a definite NO! :) We'll see which wins out...

It's too hard to believe. You seem like kid people. I mean you teach kid Bible classes, you take your kids to Disney World TWICE in one year. You take tons of pictures of your kiddos. Yep, I really think you are kid people. And by the way, you need to go back soon and take Bode. He needs to visit the Dis.

The world is a much better place with the Bodester. Thank goodness for a little testosterone to even that little girl out.

And, nice e mail by the way....
