Oh yes. This is happening.

So I am really behind in updating. Christmas came and left, New Years, even Valentine's Day (believe it or not, I actually love Valentine's Day) has come and gone without a post. And believe me, I'll get there. I'll post all the incredible pictures of Christmas, Disneyland (we went to Disneyland, well, me and Rip went. More to explain on that later..), and much much more. But for now, I will share the news. Wait. Here is a small glimpse of Disneyland. Too bad I was sick the whole time..

The bottom line is that I am pregnant. Again.  Planned? Hell no. In fact, for the first month or two I was sort of in a combination of denial/depression. One minute I was planning a massive murder/suicide and the next I was pretending that this wasn't even my life. Just some sad, pathetic woman who I knew who happens to be 15 weeks pregnant.

But I've come out of all that and have faced acceptance. Yes. This is happening. I will have a baby right as Rip turns 3,19 months apart from Chet, who is 16 months apart from Rip. Three kids in three years. If you are wanting to vomit, know this, it doesn't help. And if you are considering calling Child Protective Services,  know this also, it doesn't help; I've already tried and they are not interested in adopting all three of my kids. Something about there being too many too fast?

So. Here I stand with 500 baby/toddlers, one of which is trying to plug the vacuum into my computer at the moment. I am sort of done with this stage, and yet, I just keep starting over. Remember how I have made it very clear that I don't do babies? That is putting it politely. I do not like the baby stage (also put mildly..). In fact, I saw a friend's new baby and I got slightly sick to my stomach thinking of holding that baby.

That is where things are at. I am anti-baby and am basically reproducing at rabbit rates. Pray for us. Pray for Chet for he is soulless. Pray for Rip that he doesn't end up going to jail for killing Chet one day, and pray for me that I don't kill all of us. Oh yeah. And pray for Josh too, but he's not really a factor in all this because he spends his entire life somewhere on Cornell's campus. Smart man. I wish I was going to pretend school so I could hide from the babies that are multiplying in our tiny apartment.

Have you found out if it's another boy or are you having a girl?

Amanda said...

I'm so glad you are blogging again. I wish we lived closer and could hang out and commiserate. Just throw all your kids in a room with some toys and keep writing blogs.

Jamie and Lauren said...

I was debating on whether or not Jamie and I have come to the baby stage on our relationship. But now, as the world is being filled by the fruit of your loin, I have decided that I enjoy reading about that far more right now than I would enjoy a child of my own. Congrats :)

Wow. Congratulations? If there is anyone tough enough, it's you!

Alyssa/Jo said...

I have no words for you. Except maybe the lyrics to Alanis Morisette's "Ironic." Oh and congratulations?

I'm sorry you are multiplying like rabbits over there. You make up for those of us without a posterity.

You are kind of disgusting. Remember how you used to call me disgusting? I just threw up a little in my mouth.

Besides all that I miss you a lot and wish that we could sit around being depressed together. It would be lots of fun.

Do you wish I were there right now? How about now? Now?

ps. please take your weird little advertising thing about laundromats in SLC down. It is really dumb. Also, at the bottom I had to type opdaga Vicar of. Take that off too.

Sara said...

Dude your ad below this post is about putting kids up for adoption... Maybe you should click on it.

Brooke said...

And I thought I was crazy. Thanks for the chuckle:) I'll keep ALL of you in my prayers as you have asked!

aj said...

I can't stop laughing.

Sorry.

Good luck...?

PS. Will you hate me if I tell you I'm completely jealous? It's true.

cameo said...

Wha??? Congratulations!!! Just think of it like this. The faster you get them out, the faster you are DONE. Heck, just two more in two more years and that's it. Ha ha.

So, is your post title pertaining to you actually blogging (yea!) or the pregnancy?

I will pray that Rick Santorum isn't elected so that you will not be aided in your apparent ignorance of birth control. :-)

I am sure your days are hard, and I sure you're doing a good job. Did you see this great blog post? I think it is a must read for moms

Oh Corky...so funny...I can relate...well...to Josh...when we had our first four kids in five years I was working graveyards and going to school so I guess Kenra can relate. For better or worse...they will grow up...enjoy what you can now.

I think you're awesome! Wipe bums for a living...that made me laugh... a lot.

You are much braver than I am. And on a different note, I'm pretty sure Alex thought I was attending a pretend school too. Is saying 'happy for you!' appropriate?

Keep blogging! Alex & I miss you.
