Babies, Babies, Babies everywhere!!

everything I turn around, someone else is pregnant. I've got 3 cousins, 2 co-workers, and 2 girlfriends. That's a lot of babies. And everyone keeps asking the age 'ole question, "Don't you want another one?" Let me count the reasons why NOT!

1. 3 bedroom house. Both the boys have their own rooms right now and we love it. I'm so not in the mood to have to move things around.

2. my camry. which I love. I don't want a bigger car and 3 would mean I would have to get one.

3. 45 pounds on and off again. that's how much weight I gained with each of the boys and had to lose. really don't want to go through that again.

4. night feedings. 'nough said.

5. morning, day and night sickness. now, I got lucky and didn't have any of that but as I watch Tami & Shantal race to the bathroom at work, I thank my lucky stars I didn't. and I bet I would be guaranteed it with a 3rd.

6. the necessities. as much as I regret it, I've gotten rid of the crib. oh, and everything else.

7. the terrible 2's, 3's and 4's. nobody said it would be this bad.

8. maternity wear. yes, it's come a long way, but who really wants to go back there.

9. the boobs. I don't think I could ever stand the sight of them that big again. especially after paying to have them never be that big again.

10. hands. I have 2 and 2 kids. What the heck would I do with the 3rd? once you've got 3 kids, you're outnumbered!

11. epidural. after the problems with my last, I could never do it again and I would have to in order to have a 3rd.

so see, I can come up with plently of reasons I don't want anymore babies. yes, they are super cute and super cuddly, but I will be blessed with plently of babies to play with and adore when all the deliveries start happening.
