Life

Life has been busy for the Ginger clan lately. Brady is perpetually sick. He has been running a fever of 102 for 2 days now. Ick. He is also cutting what we believe is 6 teeth all at once. He hasn't had the best of luck. In a matter of 2 days he pulled himself up on Red's dresser and had it come crashing down on him, pulled our little TV off it's stand and had IT land on him and was face planted by Stinky and got a bloody nose. Poor kid. I think I am going to have to start bolting everything to the wall for his protection. Maybe even Stinky....

Dan was gone on a work trip for a week so the kids went out and found themselves some wild hairs. They have been crazy, fighting, whining, bickering it goes on and on. You know it is bad when Grandma even finds them unbearable. We pawned them off on the grandparents the other night because....DA DA DA DA!!!!!! It was the big V day.


Poor Dan handled it like a trooper. Not a single complaint. How many men can you say that about? I was more nervous than him. I tried my best not to show it, but I am loser like that and probably made him feel more anxious. As I sat in the waiting room for him and I realized that I was wishing that I had been the one to have the procedure instead of him (even though I squeezed 3 not so small human beings out of my HOO HA over the last 4 years). And it was a good dose of, "Man...I really love this guy." But when he walked out with his signature smirk on his face, relief washed over me and I was glad we decided to do this.

Although, in the waiting room before Dan was called in.there was the most ADORABLE newborn baby and I felt my uterus ache. I leaned over and whispered, "Oh, Dan! Look at that adorable little baby boy..." He just smiled fearfully and looked at me like I was crazy. The lady with the baby was there with her husband who was obviously there for the big V as well. She did not look nervous at all. In fact, she didn't even look up and say anything when they called her husband back. I guess her memories of a human head shooting out of her were just to fresh. LOL.

My family and friends are all taking bets that we get pregnant in the next 6 weeks. If it was going to happen to anyone, it would be us. So keep your fingers crossed. I am off to find Dan a pillow and blanket so he will be comfy on the couch for the next 6 weeks.

I'm with Pattie. I don't think I'd go either.

Don't you worry. I know that you're done. I just wondered when I read those last words if there wasn't just a bit of hope in you that if it happens to anyone, it'll happen to you?
