Comments: Three-quarters of the Way There

Why don't you let me watch them next time? No one that pregnant should have to take extra kids to a doctor's waiting room : )

Does a trip to the Dr. count as part of the homeschool curriculum? P'raps the biology section is now covered? Since they behaved nicely, maybe etiquette can also be checked off.

I can't believe the time is almost here. I'm just glad your cat-herding skills are still sharp.

I figure one has to learn to herd cats if one is going to take more children than one has hands out in public. Let's hope I can manage four. It is possible...right Terry? Right Sarah?

Five pounds doesn't sound like much! It just means the baby's growing well. And three small well-behaved children is a tribute to your parenting. I sure hope I can get MY toddler to start following directions. I don't have a problem with GOYB parenting, it's the Drop-the-Sleeping-Baby parenting that I can't do!

That's five pounds this month, Lenise. On top of the other twenty-five or so that I've already gained...

I'm not one of those women who looks tiny every where but the belly.

Four is doable, but it is amazing how much easier it is when you get to leave one home and it really doesn't matter which one.

Oh, I'm much shorter than you, and I put that kind of weight on both times. Chasing kids and nursing will get you back to your old self before you know it. Don't worry about the weight! It's your chance to eat ice cream all the time!! (I'm still doing it ;), and I weigh less than I did 3 years ago. I'm not really shaped the same way, though...)
