Baby fever.....

Not so much......

I guess Addison is getting to the age where it is common for people to ask me a lot if we plan on having more kids. I completely understand this and have to admit I have been the guilty party asking people that before. However, I think the thing that gets on my nerves is they really don't want to hear what I have to say. The fact that I am so breathtakingly young (for 5 more days) makes people assume that I should have 1 more. The last person to jump on this bandwagon was a random person at the doctor. She told me she was done at 2 kids because she was almost 35 but since I wasn't 30 yet I should definitely have one more. She said this so matter of factly that I almost felt a need to mind her. People also feel the need to give you the opposite side of the story...a woman told me just this week to not have a 3rd because that child is what almost put her over the edge emotionally and financially. Um okay.

I mean, don't get me wrong. I don't mind at all when people ask me if we plan on having more kids. Ask either one of my sister in laws and they will tell you I am all about THEM having numerous babies. The thing that really drives me crazy is when people try to convince me to go with their plan for my life.

Just so you know...this is the stock answer that everyone receives...

ME: "No, we don't plan on having more children but if something happened and we did, we would be fine with it."
J.O. "Absolutely not. End of story. I don't know about her but I would not be fine with it."

Since J.O. is so busy at work, I know he never reads this anymore and my most fun thing to currently do is act like I have baby fever. I will randomly look at baby pictures of the kids and talk about missing it, or I will talk about Amy being pregnant and say how much I miss that. The other night he got so worked up I had tears running down my face I was laughing so hard.
