What's the big deal?

Over at Suburban Correspondent, she was wondering why people think large families are such spectacles. SC has 6 children, as does Dawn over at Because I Said So, and Mary Ellen over in the Bonny Blue House has eight. I have one friend with five children, and another with six - which are actually three sets of fraternal twins. So for me to have four by the end of this year, really isn't that big a deal. I keep getting questions about our prevention methods, if I know what causes this, and the usual half-brained responses. I have decided that future questions of "you know what causes that right?" will promptly be met with a smile and "yes, we have 16 years of practice, but we still haven't figured out what causes the idiotic questions like yours."

Someone sent me an email a while back.

A man boarded a plane with 6 kids. After they got settled in their seats a woman sitting across the aisle from him leaned over to him and asked, 'Are all of those kids yours?'

He replied, 'No. I work for a condom company. These are customer complaints.'


Meanwhile off in the land of Show Me, my cousin J. had her firstborn. This little girl arrived at 10:11 CST and weighed 6 lbs 6 oz. The name, once certain, is now back up for deliberation. Yes, I sent my two pennies via text earlier this evening. We shall see what the baby's first name will be. We do know however, that the middle name will be the family standard. It's one of the names on my "not naming my child this" list, simply because there are fifty gazillion with that name already. Let's get a little creative here folks. I wish them the best of luck and joy in all the world. Aunt R said that J was a trooper and she was impressed by J's handiwork. The doctor was merely the baby catcher and J did well to direct traffic and whatnot during her labor and delivery.

oh let me at the stupid little thoughtless buggers! I guess my response would be "There is a cause for this? WOW! Mind telling me what it is, I'd be interested in details, PLEASE!" But, well, I am rude that way and LOVE to watch morons squirm on the end of their own stupidity! BTW, 4, piece of cake! ;)
