The Experiment

Life is good.

We've been blessed.

I thought I would try something new.

I've always liked surprises. I think they're fun. They keep me on my toes.

Not everyone likes surprises. Does that mean they tip over? ;)

I have six beautiful children.

I am a mother.

I am a wife.

There is a certain peace that comes from knowing who we are.

All of the unimportant things seem to melt away and we can stand tall...


You can imagine the looks and the comments when people see our family.

My favorite is "you don't look old enough to have all of those kids."
(Purely selfish reasons)

Children keep us young.... if we let them.

Children make us laugh... if we let them.

Children bring us joy, tears, wrinkles, and this shiny/wiry stuff on our heads.

Thus, we want more.

More of these...

and these...

So here is the experiment.

There will be no surprises for anyone.

We are planning to have another precious baby.

Some may ask "how many more?" Truthfully, we don't know.

Pick yourself up off the floor, if necessary.

Take your time. Catch your breath :)

My boys want another "guy."

We've been blessed.

Life is good.

(No. I'm not pregnant :D )
