How to…Not Get Pregnant

One night The Boy and I were watching the show “I didn’t know I was pregnant”
(while some of them appear to be true surprises,
I think some of those women are just plain -in denial)

The Boy is just as fascinated by this show as I am.
So much so that he asked if we could have another baby as soon as the show ended.

Mom, I want a baby” he asked so politely.
“NO way son” I quickly replied.
“You don’t want another baby?”
“Uh uh, no way, Mama’s done!” I demanded.
“Well you better not eat a lot of food then.” He began to explain.
“Your belly will grow until it explodes.” (obviously that’s how babies are born)
“Ok son, I won’t.” I promised.

The next night as we’re eating dinner I began to lift the fork to my mouth
But I could feel the piercing eyes of this little guy glaring at me.

He looks at me with a crooked head, one eye closed, and a finger point
“Mom, remember what I told you!”
“You better not eat a lot of food,
You don’t wanna get pregnant?!”

I better be careful this Thanksgiving.

The best! Maybe you could convince him that only certain kinds of food make you pregnant; or else you'll have those eyes glaring on you for awhile! Love The Boy & his never-ending creativity!

LOL! Okay, Janelle...you need to compile all these funny comments and quotes from The Boy and put it in print. He's your jackpot!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and pssst...don't eat too much (lol).

Follow along through the fun and agony as we try to figure out how to raise two completely opposite teenagers- Teen 1, the fiesty yet inquisitive one, Teen 2 quiet but wise-cracking and our ball full of energy known as The Boy. It aint always pretty, but we’ll sure try to make the best of it!
These are the stories of our lives…
