Okay, Okay, Lesson learned!!!

... I have learned that when one is speaking, especially when Heavenly Father can hear, you better choose your words very carefully...

... like when we started on the whole parenting road, we simply wanted to be able to help in "multiplying and replenishing the earth."  Well, apparently God stopped listening at 'multiply' and sure enough - we started off parenthood with twins (which we have LOVED!!).

... so as many of you may (or may not) know by now (my hubby has this funny thing of trying to have us not tell ANYONE, and then just show up randomly with a new baby... so far he is 0 for 4 on that plan...)...  we are expecting (again).  (And many of you may or may not know that we use clomid for each pregnancy, so multiples is always an option...) 

... and I have learned that when you decide you want to go down the pregnancy road and decide that this will be your last, don't say that out loud... because someone might just hear, and turn the joke on you... which is what we saw at our first 'official' pregnancy appointment yesterday... not one, not two, but THREE little aliens starting to take life form.

... Can you say THE CIRCUS IS COMING TO TOWN!... and it's about to take up housing in our neck of the woods...

OK, so I started typing out a shocked response before finally thinking, hmmm, better wait to find out if this is an April Fool's joke or not :-)

Sorry, I missed out on the whole thing since we were on the road in Uruguay and all I saw last night when we got home was "April 1..."
You probably would have got me, tho. Love, Mom - Argentina
