one potato two potato...


so i was motivated today to get out and DO something other than read, watch kiddie movies with the boys, or as of lately play on the puter. I somehow lifted down my bike from those hookey thingys on the ceiling. A feat in its self considering i am only 5-1/2 tall. Hooked up the kiddie bike trailer and drug the boys over to the park. whee woo I felt accomplished.

While there, watching little big guy play in the sandbox, and indiscriminately shoving raisins and goldfish into big little guys mouth, i texted a friend to meet me. It was a Beautiful day outside with capital B. I like being able to go outside without feeling like my face is going to melt off.

My friend K met me and of course our conversation revolved around babies. Both of mine, her newly born niece, and the possibilities of her future offspring. She is one of a few friends of mine who have wavered between having children and not having children. I must say one of the biggest voiced concerns and debate issues when discussing this issue with them is whether or not they will end up with UGLY babies. I find this strangely disturbing yet amusing. Maybe because my LBB was unplanned and a lovely surprise, (three months before my wedding) the thought on whether or not a beautious baby would be the result was not a worry in my head. Even when having BLB baby #2 I will admit to being concerned about my two boys being compared against each other in all aspects, but was not necessarily worried about if he would be cute or not. Is this common? I'm just curious...

Hey you. Didn't wany to make you blogshy, but I am enjoying your blog.

But your friend, K? (eyebrows raised) That has got to be the most vacuous and vain reason not to have kids I have ever heard. Truly. Bizarre.

But hey, you! I still love you even if you've always had fucktards..erm..I mean sillybillies for friends. Heh! Okay, lots of yo' friends are cool. You know of whom I speak.(Insert winning,toothy smile)

Do you mind if I blog roll you? It might send a few out of state readers your way. Let me know.

So jealous of your weather...

Hi Molly, I tried to visit your site last week, but couldn't until today...I don't know what happened.

Anyway, I LOVE your photos! It looks like you've got your hands full!

I would not let worries about my child's looks prevent me from having children, mercy, there are lots more "serious" concerns than that. But I have been curious as to what mix each baby would get...the anticipation is actually alot of fun!

ok so i still have the blog anxiety. I actually blush when i see someone actually reads and *gasp* RESPONDS. omg.
ill get over the honeymoon stage soon...hopefully.

As for my friends...i know i know. Its 2 separate not-even-closely related friends that say the same thing. I guess since me and my family have produced BEAUTIFUL kids i never worried.

IF and thats a big IF (even though the grandparents teach my oldest to talk about his non-exsistent sister) we decide to have a numero 3 i still don't think it will be a worry.
