Wow, after writing that title, I realized the array of V words that could be assumed....hope you're not disappointed my this V word topic! haha!
Sometimes I wish every word I said was recorded for when I needed to call on it and remember my thoughts. Or statements. Or whatever. Because truth be told, I don't remember some of the most important statements I've made in my life. And that disturbs me. Ie: how many kids I said I wanted to have. My brothers and sisters swear that I said i wanted 6. And for the life of me, I can't imagine such work-laden words leaving my mouth. IT doesn't even seem kinda like a good idea to me. So the thought that at one time I said it like I meant it? Huh uh. False.
Since the time period where my brain cells started mysteriously disappearing-- somewhere in the round a bouts of May 11, 2005, not that I would remember exactly or anything-- I only remember saying I want four kids. A round, even, big-enough family number. And guess how many kids I have???
And the thought alone of any more makes we want to check myself into an insane asylum. Or a Four Seasons. Whatever, I'll totally take the Four Seasons. With regimented room service. Probably like banana macadamia pancakes. While listening to Jack Johnson. If that doesn't sound healing, I don't know what does.
These tender years of family building have passed so quickly and in many ways feel like they have just begun. I remember Dallin's entrance into the world, my entrance into motherhood, pretty vividly. One might even say as if it were yesterday. And just as quickly as that season was opened, the sign seemed to flip to "CLOSED" just as quickly. Who would've known the stage of life that I most anticipated would pass in the blink of an eye?!!
So I really think I'm done, we're done. Yosh will drink to that.
I can't send Yosh off to go make that decision permanent, to go through with the V word, the vasectomy that is.
So what do you think, when/how will you know when YOU are done? And when do you send husband in for the snip snip?
