How Does it Feel to Know There Are No More Babies?
We have a combined total of five crazy, high spirited at times, amazingly wonderful kids! Every now and again people will ask me, “Are you going to have any more kids?” My answer to them is, “Only if God seriously wants to play the worst joke on me!”
Here’s the thing… My husband and I aren’t getting any younger! Ty and I want to be able to go off and travel and see the world once our kids leave the nest. We want to enjoy our older kids (there is an 8-year gap between the big and the littles) as well as the younger kids.
We have 3 boys and 2 girls. Ty had a daughter before we met and I had the two boys. Then we had the littles. 1 boy and 1 girl. It was perfect! He has a little boy he wanted and I have my little girl.
I just know that our family is complete and I am totally good with that!
Usually about this time (Tony is 14 months) is when I become sort of itchy for a new baby in the house, but not this time! There have been times when I have been a bit sad because our very last time of doing something with a baby sneaks up on me from nowhere, but for the most part, I am rejoicing in getting rid of baby stuff and excited to move out of baby stage again!
I feel like I have the perfect amount of kids to love! Where I don’t feel stretched too thin. I can support them all in their various activities, I can spend time with each of them individually and for the most part, I don’t feel so overwhelmed in life!
So there you have it… We are done having babies! There will be no more little Tripples running around our neck of the woods. I rejoice in the fact that I know I will never barf in the toilet for 4 months while raising a human in me!
So you wonder how it feels to be done having babies? And to know we are done having babies?
It feels awesome! I love my family! It totally completes me. There is not a single part of me that wonders, “is there just one more?” Because here’s the thing I just know that my family is complete how we are now. And that is a wonderful feeling!
