If I've ever asked you to pick one up in car line, I didn't mean you...

Sunday's paper. My first feature. Happiness.

I need to clear up something here because it's come up with my friends and I feel bad--this article wasn't directed at you! It's for the strangers that feel the need to comment on my ovary production at every flippin' inappropriate moment, not to people that actually know me. So, really, I wasn't talking about you--just the creepy guy behind you. :)

I'm just now catching up on all of the very nice emails and comments I have received. Yesterday, I was in an ibuprofen-induced stupor because of some crazy shoulder thing that has the right side of my body paralyzed. It was either from swinging a baseball bat the day before with the kids, or all of the worry I've had over this piece concentrated in a large knot in my hypothalamus.

Would Have Another But I Would Die

You know what I say to people who snare at your production of four kids (or Georg's six)...they have never stood in an amusement park with there family of five looking at a roller coaster, drawing straws to decide who will ride solo.

All families should produce in even numbers it makes life happier. I tried to convince my hubby that we needed another but he wouldn't go for it. Which means he rides the coasters solo. ;-)

When the shoulder heals this accomplishment calls for champagne!

Congrats Tracey. On the flip side of what you were writing wouldn't beleive how much crap I get for having only one child. To be told it is not fair to my son not to have a brother or sister really frosts my ass. It is insane that people comment on things they no nothing about.
anyhoo- loved the article!

Tracey said...

Aw, thanks guys. I appreciate it. Kristyn--I totally understand your place, too. Again, who made it anyone's business how your family works?

You are such a great mom to your "quad squad" as I called my four. Two boys and two girls, it doesn't get much better than that!
