My friend Sara asked me to do her a huge favor. She asked me to watch her 6 month old baby girl. I thought about it for half a second and said, 'You betcha'!
It is no secret that I want another baby. Within weeks of Mallory's birth I knew that I didn't feel done. I'm told that lots of women feel this way. That you either feel your family is complete at some point or.....you just don't.
I had Calvin talked into having another for about a day and a half. Then people told him he was too old and crazy. He has been against it ever since. I have tried to talk myself out of it. I really have. I tell myself that I don't have a big enough vehicle for three carseats, right now the children each have their own room, most tables are built for four, hotel rooms are built for four, airplanes are built for three...wait that doesn't work. I wouldn't have the freedom that I have now...which isn't saying much because I rarely go anywhere anyway....but leaving three kids home alone with Daddy is a little different than leaving him with two. There are two of us and two of them.
Then there are those silly Volkswagen commercials where Brooke Shields accuses people of having babies for german engineering. Here is my favorite one.
I have tried to convince myself that two is enough for me. That I don't NEED another baby.
But then, today when I held Sophie in my arms and smelled her little head......
It was heaven!
