Moms of Many It's April! - Page 2

post #21 of 102
flapjack- I have but I think that has more to do w/the fact I am being induced this Fri. I have GD and am on meds for it and they don't like mommas to go past 39 wks on the meds! So I'll be holding him sometime on Fri! :
I see the light. Just enjoying this last week w/other dc on spring break.Even doing Easter early since I'll be in the hospital that morn.

Happy birthday to April moms! My mom's b-day is the 19th. And this los will be too (duh) but I am so excited to have an April/spring baby. All my others are fall/early winter.so can't wait to wear baby in the garden and sunshine!

April is one of my favorite months of the year.May is next!

Okay,kiddos have spring break this week. I am glad to have this week with them as I am used to homeschooling and missmy two eldest now that they are going to public school....
Spent today making homemade playdough and shaping all sorts of creationsfrom it. I scented it vanilla which meant a large portion of it was ingested by my 1 and 3year olds! Mt 8 year old is an amazing artist, he can make the most intricate designs out of a lump of clay! We did acrobats on cushions on the floor in the livingroom and read a billion and one books.
I had an awful lot of outdoor stuff planned and today has beeen oddly COLD and even snow flurries! WTF???? Two days ago it was near 80 degrees and I have been back in my skirts and tank tops and bare feet for the last couple weeks and now this....sigh. Hope it warms up soon!!!

I am kind of regretting DH getting a vasectomy. I know we had our reasons then but now that Nomy is a year I find myself wanting another one. Ack I wish I had written down all the reasons so I could remember.

Hello! I just noticed the "Mom of Many" title and had to post! I just joined, and have enjoyed finding families that lives similarly.

Blessings,
Rebecca

How fun! I teach Scottish Dance and my oldest is going to start lessons with me this summer. Or at least more focused lessonsl; we've been doing the moves with her since she was a baby!

May I join you ladies?

I've been reading along for a few months now and finally decided to jump on in.

My name is Gina and I have 4 kids (really we have 5...Dh has a son from his previous marriage that is 13 that lives a few states north of us. We only see him once a year or so). We are on the fence about having another one, but we are not preventing, so we'll see what happens.

Well, I am watching my two nephews today as well and all the kids are begging to go play soccer ourside before it rains, but I will bbl.

Take care!

Hey, I just saw this thread, how many do you have to have to join in?
We have 7. One has moved out, and we lost one when she was only 6 weeks old, so we have 5 in our house every day. (Including foster kids, of course, we are a foster family.)

And now, ladies, please go to the bathroom, empty your bladders, return to the computer and scroll down for a good belly laugh.



































I'm pregnant.

(We found out on Friday and I was away for the weekend, so I've had time to get my swearing out. There was quite a lot, and frankly there are few things more disconcerting than doing pregnancy tests in your mother's bathroom.)

Can I say Crikey-O-Likey and :

You must be spinning at the moment. Keep your feet on the ground and your chin up!
post #37 of 102
Two things to say!

1growingsprout, I'm so sorry you have a house full of little sickies! : : That sounds like really hard work for you & misery for the kidlets. I hope everyone recovers asap & then you all have Super Immune Systems that withstand the next 6785 viruses you come across! :


AND, flapjack!!!!!OMG! Yay, CONGRATULATIONS!!! : : : I'm so excited to hear your news! Hooray, new wee family member!!! When are you due?? I'm excited to be pregnant with you again! I didn't think you guys were going to have any more, heeheehee. I'm ever so pleasantly surprised to read your news!! Have I abused the exclamation point enough for one paragraph?


Oh, and I guess this makes three things to say:
WELCOME youngwife, gromero, & pixiekisses! :

(also, thank you to you that posted a congrats to me on last month's thread! )

Hello everyone!

I'm Maggie and we are expecting #s 4 and 5 in August. Every last one of our LOs are GIRLS We found out for sure that the twins were little ladies last Monday. Poor DH sat there moaning But he loves all of his girls. Due to pregnancies being very hard on me these 2 will be our last. I feel like I have spent all of the last 6 years pregnant and/or nursing that I don't know what I am going to do with myself. And I feel pretty guilty about being excited about the BREAK.

This makes me so sad but I know from experience that I can be housebound for two weeks or be in hospital for a week and none of our neighbours knock to ask if we are ok. Privacy and independence have trumped community spirit and it feels so wrong.
I couldn't agree more. I am so sorry for your neighbor and for you.

Zjande, you're contagious and it's all your fault- and orangefoot's, of course . We weren't planning on having any more, either. I was planning on getting some education and having a nice well-paid job and a final salary pension scheme and all kind of exotic luxurious stuff. I'm due the 17th of December, so it's a fair gamble that baby is going to turn up in December... if I'm staying true to form, it should be the 22nd.
