One more

One more night and then my gorgeous hubby is home for another 2 whole weeks. Then the bastard is off to Hawaii. Hmph...
So here I am guzzling down a so-so glass of Spanish shiraz and trying to think of something interesting to say. I found that liquoring myself up helps me sleep better while Dan is gone. Then it's fun to call my friend, Shana just to say all kinds of crazy stuff and use 4 letter words that I usually don't say...just because they make her giggle. She thinks I am weird when I have a few...I think I am brilliant.
So anyway...my uterus. It is aching. Holding that gorgeous little nephew of mine is really making me start to question whether or not I am going to want another baby. I think it comes down to OF COURSE I want another baby...just not more kids. Is that ever going to go away?? When I pray about it, I feel content having 3 children. Then I see a little baby and oooooohhhh!!!! I want that!!!!
Some women hate being pregnant and hate the tedious task of caring for a newborn, but oh how I love it. I am sad that the days are passing by so quickly. Already next to Hudson, Brady is looking monstrous.
Somebody better get me a niece and SOON otherwise it could be trouble for Dan....

You are a NUTTER!!! You say completely hilarious things while drinking yourself silly, with half a glass of wine. You are such a lightweight, wait a minute so the hell am I. Oh well, at least we entertain eachother!
Miss you Shan

Don't be silly, wrap his willy! Give your uterus a break, it deserves it.

OH Mike...no worries. A man can never truly understand the ache of a woman's uterus when holding a newborn baby. it just means I am jealous. The thought of having 4 kids is enough to bring me to tears with fright.

Hi Kristin,
Sorry I can't help with uterus questions, cause I don't have one. I understand the part about husbands being in trouble, though, if their wife doesn't get to hold babies on a regular basis. Been there, felt that trouble.

So, his family doesn't communicate and they are all divorced. Sort of makes one wonder if there is a connection between those two facts, doesn't it? Just remember, you didn't marry them.

Have a great one!
Andrew

Hey Kristen! I relate to this post. My man wanted us to be done after 3 kids. But each time we sat down to eat, it felt like there was someone missing! I can't describe the feeling- other than to say it was something in my heart that said, "Someone is missing who should be here". The moment I laid eyes on my 4th child, I knew she had arrived and that feeling went away. They tied my tubes on the table and so passed the reproductive portion of my life. I still adore babies and love to hold them, but I feel satisfied with my contribution.

I am pro-bigfamily. Take it one at a time- see how you feel. 4 is a lot of laundry, but also a great blessing.
Oh, PLEASE, I don't feel sorry for Dan for one moment! They get to have all the FUN in this whole process. LOL

Have a great week. :o)

PS. Words of wisdom I received from a farmer's wife- mother of 7.

"Life is always challenging, but you will never regret having many children. You may regret having too few."

Carolyn said...

I know exactly what you mean about wanting another baby but not more kids.

Despite being sick, I loved being pregnant, watching my belly grow, anticipating the new arrival.

But soon enough they become teenagers. Then you wonder what you were thinking! :P

If I had unlimited funds and help (nanny, cook, chaueffer, etc.), I would probably have more.

Gingers Mom said...

Andrew - thanks for another visit. My in laws are cracked. That God I am not blood related. I worry for my children. LOL>

Trailady - When I look at my kids I do feel complete. I think if there was unlimited time and money and resource I would have more, but I am pleased and satisfied with the family I have. But oh those babies!!

Carolyn - Pregnancy was such a miracle...even when you are puking into the toilet and discovering your first hemmroids. I feel the same way.

Pattie said...

Funny, after three kids, my uterus says "Pffft!" Guess that means I am done...

Mimi said...

If you do not do something about that ache your gonna be the woman living in a shoe!

Seriously though, I know the feeling of wanting another!

Gingers Mom said...

Domesticator - That's probably what my uterus is actually saying. It hasnt had a break in 4 years!

Mimi - ain't that the truth. LOL!

Pendullum said...

Wonder if Dan can hear your uterus calling???
It will be like a honing device...

Ok, yeah and I just added another animal to my family over the weekend. Yeah, I can SOOOOO talk. *rolls eyes at self* Babies ARE so cute...

Catch said...

Babies are very precious....and then they grow up! lol

Gingers Mom said...

Christina - Oh thank you! I don't know what I was thinking!

Catch - so true. I love their sweet baby smell. And then they start smearing their poop on the wall and that sweetness is gone...

Ok, my little one is 4 months old, let me remind you about the sleepless nights (she doesn't sleep more than 3-4 hours at a stretch), the constant laundry you have to do because the baby spits up all the time so you and the baby cange clothes 4 times a day. And the change in schedule for everyone in the house, trying to plan around the babies naps

But ahh yes, then they smile at you like you are the greatest thing ever, and WAHM your uterus SCREAMS "FEED ME SEYMORE"
