I'm growing as a person-and growing a person

I find it amazing that when you're driving a minivan and someone in the back is watching a movie, that people feel the need to ride your ass the whole time. why?  are they trying to point out that i'm an old person in a van?  do they want to make me feel bad for letting my kids watch movies in the car?  have they never seen cinderella before and don't want to miss anything?  whatever the reason, it is annoying. 

one of these nights, i'm going to strap some dolls into the car seats, put down both dvd players and pop in some really nasty porn.  then, i'm going to drive down the road about 10 mph under the speed limit.  go ahead, ride my ass.  you were probably already judging me for having movies playing in the car anyway.  don't be surprised when you get the finger as you pass me or get to witness how large my vocabulary actually is when you rear end me.  since i don't think i've actually done anything wrong by playing movies in the car, i think there is a lesson to be learned here and perhaps someone should be made an example of.  i don't think it should be me.  i really am growing as a person.

now that i'm done with my rant, i have news.  we went to the doctor today and found out what kind of baby we're having.  it turns out we're having another girl.  on the way home it hit me 4 GIRLS! i'm gong to be the mother of 4 girls before i'm even 31 years old.  it seems kind of surreal and unbelievable. 
so, now, i'm thankful that i won't be carrying my beautiful baby boy around in a pink car seat.  i'm also wondering how many times can clothes be handed down. 


  1. Congratulations, by springtime a new era of little women will be complete!

    About the clothes... My sister and I shared clothes because we were so close in age and she was scrawny while I was "built". It worked. Then, my mom would send the clothes to my cousins who then sent them back when my little sister was born. I say use what you can and only replace necessary items. You can probably get away with this for a couple of years.

  2. Love Love Love the 4 girls thing you have got goin on. It is probably going to get scary when they are in their teens but it will all be worth it when they are are all grown up. By the way be very careful. My mom thought she was done when she was 28 and had four girls. Turns out just after her 37th birthday I came along!!! She has told me for as long as I can remember that she cried for the first 7 months of her pregnancy with me and that I "took away her trip to the Bahamas." I am pretty sure she takes great joy in adding that she still has never been. She also swears up and down that she would do it all again.

  3. Congrats to you! 4 girls - how blessed you are. :)

    Remind me when you're due again...

  4. Thanks, everyone! We're actually really excited. I think steve was secretly hoping for a girl. we're due may 1, but hopefully she'll come a little sooner because kennedy's birthday is the 10th.
