Delightfully Chaotic

Should I rethink a third….No Way!

on May 23, 2007

I don’t know if any of you remember a post I wrote about a week ago saying how I’ve been having heartburn, pregnancy dreams, etc…  Well here is the update the crimson tide has rolled in along with some p.m.s.  And I’m going to be honest part of me was kind of sad.  I do think we should wait until C. Monkey is at least 2, but there is a part of me that would love to have another one now.  My sister (Ashly) thinks I’m crazy and calls me a mother hen, but its all good and totally harmless.  Now for my mom and mil, that’s another story.  They would definitely think I’m crazy for wanting another one because to them kids are very expensive and isn’t two enough.  But after the shock they would be happy and fall in love with the new baby.  So as of now we are not going to try and I’m going to try and wait and not drive David crazy until C. Monkey is 2.

Now onto what my little Chunky Monkey did yesterday.  After feeding him lunch I gave him some cheese crackers to snack on while I was pouring him a drink.  Wouldn’t you know as soon as I turn my back this little monkey has shoved all the little crackers in his mouth.  He looked like a squirrel storing food in his cheeks, and then wouldn’t you know he starts gagging by all of the food in his mouth.  So here I come to stick my finger in mouth when he spits the crackers out everywhere, but here I am drink in hand to help him out.  Sometimes I wonder about that boy, he acts like he’s never going to eat again-it’s crazy.

Ahh and now onto my Sweet Pea.This is exactly how she was acting last night.  We are having a revival at our church this week and the guy and his wife are awesome and I love listening to them.  They are from Australia and came to our church last year and have come again.  Anyways I didn’t want to miss it so the kids and I headed on up to church and then when David got off he was going to come and pick them up and take them home.  Well as soon as he went in to her classroom she tells him to go back into church because she was not ready to leave yet.  You can imagine the look on David’s face, the teacher then tries to persuade her to leave and that she can take her paints with her.  She was bound and determined to not go easily, she then grabs onto the table while he’s trying to get her out and she’s screaming “no, I don’t want to go, I’m not ready to leave.”  I’m laughing right now thinking about it because well it wasn’t me she wasn’t doing this to.  Anyway they come and get me from church and when I go to the foyer there she is standing there arms crossed, I ask what’s the problem and she looks at me and says nothing.  I guess she figured if they had to come and get me and there is Daddy standing there she better straighten up. 

After all of this Ashly would say are you sure you really want a third one to chase around and deal with the little attitudes-imagine it times 3.  My answer will be yes because not everyday will always be like that.  As for today it has been a great morning, I was actually able to sleep in till 8, and my little guy didn’t wake up until about 8:30-very unusual.  So I was able to make pancakes this morning-totally interrupted.  And since I had one to many pancakes this morning I plan on getting my butt on that bike today.  Oh and I almost forgot I just bought my tickets to go see Pirates of The Caribbean: At Worlds End.  It’s tomorrow night at 11:35 p.m. I’m so excited and I’ll tell y’all if it’s as good as the hype it’s getting.

    How funny!

    I cannot believe you’re going to go see a movie at 11:35 p.m.! I’d be asleep before the movie started!!!!!

    My son does the whole shove all the crackers in his mouth thing at least once a week. He eats like there’s no tomorrow also. Go figure…he’s barely 17 months and wears 2T clothing.

    And there’s is no way in heck that I could go to a movie that started at 11:35. I’m getting old an frumpy like that, I guess.

    I can’t imagine having a third with my kids these ages. I can’t imagine having a third EVER! Can’t do that whole c-section thing again. Also, I’m not patient or tolerant enough to parent three. I’m doing outstanding to handle the two I’ve got. But I wish you the best in your own heart’s desires. What I found works for me to get pregnant is this: don’t try (at least it worked like a charm the second time).

    Ya know, I did not want a third. We were supposed to be done after Liberty. But now that I have bean, I just really can’t imagine anything else.

    There’s just short of 3 years in between the first two and just short of 4 years in between Liberty and Bean. Personally I have found it to be the perfect age span and really allowed me to enjoy ‘babyhood’ all over again. There’s like 18 months between my niece and nephew and I don’t know how my sis did that. I think she’s crazy! LOL.

    Our family loves doing the midnight opening of good movies. (I have two teenagers) In Loveland, CO, they are starting at 8pm. We got tickets for the 9pm show. CAN’T WAIT!!!

    I have lots of friends with 5+ kids. They say after the 3rd one it just keeps getting easier. Babies are a blessing and are a reward from the Lord! 🙂

    I’m always back and forth on whether or not we should have a third.. I guess I should wait until the second is at least a year old to decide if we want to try again by the time she’s two.. I don’t want to have another one five years from now like I did this last time..

    I really can’t talk about planning a third. Honestly, none of my babies were planned! I found out that I was pregnant with my second just one week before the first’s birthday. I started crying because I still didn’t know what to do with the first one.
    Finding out about the third was both happy and stressful. Caroline was in school and Em was due to go the next year. I was going to have entire days to myself..whooohooo. oh I’m pregnant? I’m starting ALL OVER AGAIN!
    Needless to say, I’m lucky to not have trouble getting pregnant. I’m pretty sure Chris could walk out of the bathroom in his underwear and I’d get pregnant.
    I’m sure none of my comment helped but You’re Welcome!

    I have to say I agree with your sister. Two is definitely enough until they are both in school and then you need a baby! 🙂 I have missed you and I am enjoying catching up this morning!
