Heh, we'll probably be resetting that clock one more time...I have 4 brothers and 2 sisters and Rachael has 14 siblings (most half, but still) so even 3 seems like a small family to us! Gotta keep the Social Security pyramid afloat!

And another one falls for the "Oh, honey, they'll play with each other and give us a parenting break!!" trick...

A USCG aviator who lived up our street is raising four drop-dead gorgeous blue-eyed blond-haired daughters. He says he's really looking forward to the years when they'll be driving & dating because he just wants to get it over with.

Good luck!

Oh man, I'd be taking up a position in the driveway with my fatigue pants on, sharpening a machete on a large 220v grinder and asking those boys "so...you wanna go home now or take a whirl at it and make sure to have her back by 8? Because i've got a shovel and a big back yard and I'm pretty sure nobody will miss you..."

Mrs. bunny had a few glasses of wine about 6 months after gabe was born and got brave enough to suggest a successor.

Considering that he removed, peeled off, broke, threw, throttled, yanked, stepped on and smacked nearly everything in the house at some point today, it seems like screaming "NOOOO!" and running from the room was a good decision.

I'm sure things will work out way better for our young laurence though...
