Yes, I fully meant to type the title in capital letters.

Yes, I am yelling very loud at you.

I now know of FIVE people who are pregnant. Yes, that is FIVE! They say things come in three's, but seriously, this is ridiculous. And if that saying is so, then there is one more person out there waiting to get knocked up. Oh, and did I mention that three out of those five people are related to me? YIKES!

I should totally swear off doing the deed just b/c the water is now contaminated, but I don't think I can punish Magellan like that. I did miss a pill (or a few!) this month, and while it's not during a time when I'm normally fertile (yes I do know that much about my cycle!), you just never know what God will throw your way.

So I am swearing off any and all water.

For now.

Well, probably forever. Magellan and I are done having children as far as we're both concerned. I used to want 3 or 4 kids, but man, that was until I had two very active, crafty, sneaky children. They are a lot of work! The hardest part is the newborn stage. If there is one thing I really dislike about raising children, it's the newborn stage. Yes, they can be cute and cuddly, but both of my kids at the extreme ends of "cute and cuddly." CJ is the most cuddly person you will ever meet. It can be downright smothering at times and it drives me crazy. Ella is the cutest thing you'll ever meet but she HATES to snuggle. She doesn't even like to be touched. In her sleep even! And CJ is cute, but he is to the absolute extreme of snuggling you could ever be.

So, back to the newborn stage.....the idea of training another baby just scares me. I am so not good at the newborn stage. The lack of sleep tries my patience and I have had two babies with reflux. Ella being the worst of the two. Her reflux was so bad she had to be on special formula up until she was 8 months old, and was on Prevacid for 5 months. She ruined countless outfits, and I probably went thru 10 bibs a day. And that was on a good day. CJ was never that bad, but it was still gross and he ruined countless outfits as well. I never knew if either child was truly getting enough nutrition and I constantly stressed about them spitting up while sleeping and choking on it. I much prefer the one year and up agrees with me a lot better.

I also don't think I like the idea of being fat for 9 months and taking another year to lose the baby weight. That just sucks. And the older I get, the harder it gets to lose the weight.

Not to mention I've given away most of my baby stuff.

No, it would NOT be a good idea to drink the baby making water.

At least not today.
