I have no idea how many days I am behind on my photo challenge. For what it’s worth, I apologize. I was on Day 12- Photo of something you love. A picture of my kids would be to obvious so I found this one. It about sums up my whole life right now.
Day 11 of my photo challenge asks for a photo of something I hate- I don’t use the word “hate” a lot so I will just say that I strongly dislike…
Wall-E-Mart. I can’t stand that place but I feel like I live there. I am at that stupid store at least twice a week, trudging through the isles and fighting off the waves of shoppers pushing past me in there little hover rounds. Of course, since she’s been there so much, K thinks that this is the best store ever created.
Day #6 asks for a photo of something I want to do again. The answer, easily, is have more babies! The question really is- How many are to many?
This question popped up on the Facebook page of a friend tonight. It then followed as a topic on TheLeakyBoob.com and Howtobeaman. Seeing it more than twice made me think that the universe was telling me to get my own thoughts out.
Since I had my son I have really been feeling the pull to have more children. It may be the hormones, it may be mental illness or it may be as The Hub says and my natural Virgo-ness is taking over. Whatever the reason, I can’t wait to crank out at least 4 more of these snuggly, snotty, poop factories that absolutely steal my heart.
I’ve really been thinking hard about this for the last few days. Syfy is almost 5 weeks old, which means I will be heading back to the doctor shortly for my 6 week check up. I know she is going to ask the big question about birth control.
Honestly, when I was trying to get preg last year I got really comfortable with the Natural family planning method so I would like to go that route and whatever happens happens. I would really like to be pregnant again within the year.
They say (and by they I mean my OB and our Pediatrician) that the best time for me to have my kids is between the age of 25 and 35. Well, I am 29 now so if I get pregnant every year I can have 6 more within the window. Not that I want to get pregnant every year. I am thinking that it will probably take 6-7 months between kids for my body to get back and for us to get preg again so I am thinking that 4 more may be possible. I am almost positive that 5 to 6 is my max.
Don’t worry kids, Mommy has not left you again. Real life has been demanding, little man is having a growth spurt so he’s been cranky as shit.
Anywhoo- to catch up on the photo challenge I am combining # 4-5.
#4- A photo of a habit you wish you didn’t have…
Sweet Christ, you mean I can only pick one? Ok, no judgement.. I’m a nail biter. I have been trying to quit since I was in Kindergarten. I’ve tried hot sauce, special polishes, gloves, more hot sauce… it’s just ingrained in my subconscious. I think it’s because I wasn’t breastfed. Every bad habit is because I wasn’t breastfed.
#5- A picture of your favorite memory
Oh God, I can’t pick one. I really can’t. Once you have kids there are so many absolutely amazing things that happen in your life and most of the time, you are to busy laughing to grab the camera. There are TONS of great pics on my FB page.. from the moment that Hub proposed to me, Kayla’s birth, our wedding, thousands of pictures of Kayla growing up, Sy’s birth and so many more. I just can’t pick one.
