Parks and Children

I took the boys to the park to play this morning. Not sure how many more times we'll do that before it gets cooler. They had a great time as always.
Stephen told his boss yesterday that I was expecting and I have to share her response which was, "Uh-oh...wait, is this a good thing?" Stephen assured her that it was a good thing. Then she said something like, "That's a lot of little ones." I told Stephen he should have pointed at himself and said, "Uh, Mormon, remember?" Where we used to live three kids was nothing, but here is seems to be a much bigger deal and guess what we might not be done with 3 (gasp!). To add to that we've had our kids fairly close together so I imagine that makes it all the crazier to people. Hey, I want to have my babies while my body is young and to be able to keep up with my little ones.
I'm just waiting until I start showing because I know two comments/questions I'm bound to get. First, off people are going to tell me that I'm going to have my hands full. Thanks, for pointing that out. I actually am already well aware of that. The other I'm sure I'll get is something to do with either needing to have a girl or asking if I want to have a girl. Honestly, and I'm not just saying it I don't care. If I have a girl, great. I'd love to have a daughter, but I'll be just as happy with another boy. I love my boys and I am prepared to have another one as far as clothes and toys go.
I promise not to make every post one about pregnancy and babies, but I couldn't help but chuckle over Stephen's boss and her response.

Oh the things people say and shouldn't...this is why I'm glad I'm in Utah. No one thinks twice about my babies being less than 2 years apart. In fact, I usually get a "that's just about right" comment. Good luck!
