3 Random Things

Okay Homeschool and Etc., I'll give it a try. Hmmmm. 3 random things about me. Okay.

1.) I hate it when people assume that they can tell you how many kids you are supposed to have. Birth control was only invented about 50 or so years ago. Why is it that all of a sudden it's wrong to have more than 3 kids even though it was done differently, before birth control, for thousands of years? Does that make any sense at all? Our grandmothers had like 9 or 10 kids and that was okay. Now, just a few decades later, it's an injustice. It's wrong. It's not fair to have more than 3. That is just weird thinking. (My pastor said it's usually just based around selfishness). Shhhh, don't tell anyone I said that. I love kids! It's amazing how fast birth control changed the minds of people towards children. Okay, I shared this because it's a serious pet peeve of mine. This is huge! So I just had to tell you.

2.) Have I ever mentioned how lucky I am to be married to my best friend? I went through a pretty tough relationship for 4 years before him. I always wondered why it was so hard to get along with a human being. Then I met Charles and we clicked like puzzle pieces together. We were a match. We were going to wait to get married but there was just so much confusion around us, people trying to get in the middle of it for weird reasons, so we upped our plans. We ended up planning our wedding in 5 days! Can you believe people betted that we wouldn't stay married for long? This December we will have been married for 10 years. I'm so lucky to have Charles. Only God could have known he was the perfect match for me. I really appreciate Charles a lot and I'm glad he is my very own best friend and love.

3.) Out of 5 kids, only one was planned. My middle child Kyle! All the others were surprises. I don't believe in birth control, at least any kind that puts hormones in your body, so it makes it pretty difficult at times to never have oopsies. Ha ha. Oh well, they are the best oopsies I've ever had. I love every single one of them and I am not looking forward to the day I have no little pitter patter of feet around here. They are my little "Awesomes". When little Ashley gets too big. I'm just gonna have to have another one! Oopsie.

I love this post. I've been meaning to comment on it for a while, but when I "visit" other people's blogs I usually have a baby in my arms LOL! I am laughing at the idea that the only one planned is Kyle LOL!

God planned 'em all. Bless you richly today!
