I'm not pregnant

A week or two ago, I came across these adorable mother/child t-shirts on Etsy. My sister-in-law has twins, and is still breastfeeding them (they'll be 1 in May), God bless her! I sent the seller a message and requested twin shirts for the boys and a shirt for her.

Funny, right? Well, not as funny as finding out a week later that I should have been sending her this shirt instead... That's right, folks, she is pregnant with #3! We are happy for her, but I gotta tell ya, I was like WHAT? How is that even possible? She is breastfeeding twins for goodness' sake! Doesn't God have some sort of natural birth control built into those milking machines? Holy cow, she and my brother-in-law are going to be SO busy. I know. I have 3 kids to prove it. At least she'll have two going through the same stages at once (hopefully) LOL. I am not envious, however. :) ---- I'll tell you what I am envious of - her super support system. I practically have NONE, okay I really have none, and she has like a whole town. I guess that's what I get for marrying a guy who gets told by the government where he has to live. Apparently, there is a government conspiracy to keep me from my family while in my child-bearing years...

I think this must be the week to announce pregnancies. Are you pregnant? Congratulations if you are, assuming you are thrilled about it, of course. Two other friends of mine just announced as well (and I don't have that many friends, so this is like a REALLY high percentage). I guess it's baby making season... I think I'll pass, on the 9 month afterglow, that is.

E, if you are reading this, don't go out and buy that maternity shirt because I'm going to buy it for you. What size do you want?


  1. My brother is pregnant! Well not technically. :)

  2. This is so funny! I think it is crazy that there is a post about us! I do aprreciate the support here-- however a hubby who works 12 hour days, oncall every other night, including weekends also seems hard!! Hey if your reading this and we havent told you we were pregant, sorry!! We are waiting until next week! Hubby is telling everyone!!

  3. Ha! Sorry E, I didn't know you hadn't told everyone. T didn't tell R, or at least R didn't tell me to keep it a secret. Don't worry, no one but you reads this blog anyway! LOL

    Yep, must be VERY hard having a hubby that is so busy. You are blessed to have such a great support system.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
