"Mom, Did you get fixed?"

Joy came up to me with a pair of old baby shoes. smaller than anyone here wears.

she said , probably we can give them to....(a family member with smaller babies than ours)

then she said, "since you aren't having more babies, can we give away all the baby stuff?"

i said," sure probably."

next thing she said is..." well you could have more babies maybe someday." with a hopeful ring in her voice.

and i replied," well no, that's probably not gonna happen."

and she said "why? did you get 'fixed'?"

and at that point i cackled out loud.

after i was done laughing i said, "nope i didn't get fixed yet. so i guess that could happen maybe someday."


she came up a minute later planning the arrival of "maybe twins or triplets". she's a dreamer.

i hate to squash the fantasy, because if i say definitely no, and there's a surprise someday, well i hate to be a liar, and Joy never forgets. so i have to be vague and keep the option open.

Seriously love Joy!! That is hilarious!!

And I am too lazy to comment on the post below, because you know that would take me making a few extra clicks, like way less than it took me to write all this, anywho, I second the private blog just for you. I have one and it is great to vent out thoughts that would otherwise be a major downer or offensive to some, and it helps get it all out!

That is too funny.

And ditto what Jenny said. Or just put it on the bunko blog. That's good too.

♥ HOW FUNNY!!! I'd steer clear of the twins and triplets thing though!!! :)

LOL. Megan said I need to have triplets so that each girl can have their own and they won't have to share. Oh and they should be boys so our sides are even, could you imagine triplet boys?
It's good to keep your options open.

How great you know her so well.

P.S. Don't get fixed. It sucks.

i love that conversation! the things the young ones say. as my four year old says i can't have any more babies because i don't have a uterus. your joy sounds like she is holding out for more siblings.
