My female body parts have been telling me stuff. I am not listening.

When I see a baby, my female parts quiver.
It's as if they are telling me that my baby making days are not over.
They are trying to remind me how wonderful it is to bring a new human into the world.
How cute newborns are.
And how adorable baby rolls are.
And how much I love to kiss baby toes.
And bellies.
How much I love to smell the tops of baby's heads.
And witness all of the "firsts".

I love babies.
My body, however does not enjoy carrying them.
It does do well delivering them though.
As if it is saying "Get this thing outta me NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!"

I love my three children.
My three beautiful, healthy, perfect children who bring me so much much much love.

I am done.
So someone please tell my body to look at babies without wanting one.

I like babies too, then I remember all the work that goes with them and am happy with OPBs(other People's Babies).

I am currently 34w pregnant with a big old surprise baby (Indy is 8) and believe me you do NOT want to be pregnant. I HATE being pregnant. Just love on other babies and be happy that you won't have to deal with the late night feedings, no sleep and stinky diapers. Tell your body to quiver all it wants but don't give in!

Just find a new mom with a cute newborn and ask to borrow the baby for a few hours so she can take a nap. Problem solved!

I know those feelings. I tell them in no uncertain terms NO! Take Jenners advice.

I love babies. I MISS my babies so much. I can't believe the baby toddler days are over. Sometimes I cry. But then all the kids get home from school and I am too busy to have any more kids. I enjoy them all so much and remind myself that I wouldn't be able to enjoy them if I had more. I know the feeling though.
