I have never blogged or anything ever before, so here goes. My 3 are 12, soon to be 10 and 7. Our third was our last valiant effort for a girl and I swear if he were our first he would be an only child!! Just teasing. Am I the only one that gets the look when people come and say, "Oh, 3 boys you poor thing." I look to them as a blessing and to be honest, one go around of PMS in this house a month is enough. But, I love my boys and they are the main reason I had resigned to stay home with them. My only regret is that I wished I had resigned earlier than 5 years ago.

Congrats on the first grandbaby! With this boy you can spoil and then send home! That's what my mother-in-law does. My husband I must have cracked our heads when we decided to name the boys with all the same first letters. Anthony, Andrew and Alexander (the great). It's nice but when you go to correct one, all names come out but the one you want!

...I use to call the boys the dogs name sometimes!!!! Laughing Wishful thinkikng I guess, her name was Hannah, the name I would have given my girl if I ever had her! Laughing We have a Nathaniel, Jesse and Seth. Oh what a wonderful journery you are on sweetie!!!!!!! Enjoy. Smile A "funny" side note. My best friend died two years ago. She had a cat named Hanna. We took her in. So, now, I have another Hanna(h). She is almost 19 almost blind and deaf as a post! I guess I'm forever going to have a Hanna(h) in my life. Smile Though not in human form , I have my "little girl".

I think no matter what you name your children you will always get there names confused. I find myself going through the entire family before I get a name correct. I agree with the stuttering! I'm told that it gets worse when you have grandchildren. My mil sounds like she has "name turrets" when she is around all the grand babies, 7 boys and 1 girl.

hehe! This is so funny, yet true!! I am the same way. At least, sometimes, the confusion about who I am talking to gets them out of whatever it is I'm yelling at them about!! Laughing

Welcome!!!
