Before we got married, our big argument was that I wanted 4 kids (I come from a family of 5 kids) and Charlie wanted 3 kids (he comes from a family of 3 kids). After all the troubles we went through to conceive Stella, we were stoked to have just one and beyond happy with 2.
Then lately, my baby isn’t so much a baby anymore, and even though I got my IUD put in last week, I’m already feeling the yearning for 1 more.
Yes, Mom, slap me now. I know I’m a horrible pregnant person and I called you every day crying because I was so sick and exhausted and could barely take care of myself much less my toddler.
Then today at the hot springs, Charlie and I wrangled our two kids + our two nephews for a picture, and PHEW, I’m back to thinking how in the WORLD did my parents take the 5 of us anywhere when we were kids?!
