And she is loving it.
I still cannot believe it, myself.
And I would still like to have another baby. Now or later, I am not too picky. ;)
I would like opinions on something here.
Not me having a baby necessarily, but having babies in general.
Is there anything wrong with wanting more babies than people ordinarily do?
Like for instance, many people think I ought to be more than satisfied with my four girls. And do not get me wrong: I am!
However, I think there is a serious double/triple/quadruple/etc. standard.
People want things all the time.
Someone who wants a better paying job is not told to "be satisfied with what you have." Someone who wants a larger house is not told they do not need it. A person who buys a larger car is not told they should have been satisfied with what they had before.
I just do not understand why I cannot want something so GOOD and so WONDERFUL without being viewed as a nutjob.
The REASON I want more babies, is because I love the babies I have now! They bring me more joy than anything else on this earth.
I can totally understand people wanting to only have two children. Or wanting to only have one. Or even not wanting to have any at all. Well, I may not be able to empathize totally, but I can definitely understand and not judge them to be fools for that. (Unless they don't have a plan for when they get older, because that is a foolish thing, to not realize they might get old and have to rely on someone else's kids to take care of them! But that is totally another post! haha)
But I get the impression all the time, that people think I am a fool because I want another baby or two.
Anyhow. This was on my mind. I guess it is a complaining post, but it seriously irritates me when people do not want me to have more babies, even though that IS what I want.
And I know that God will give me what I can handle. I do not know God's mind on whether or not he thinks I can handle another baby, but I know that he in his wisdom says that children are blessings and that people who have their quiver full of them are happy people.
Well, people! It just doesn't seem to me like my quiver is quite full yet.
