gaggles and gobs

i have three children. ages 3, 2 and 7 months. i get a lot of these from stranger's- "your brave!!" "you have your hands full!!" "i could never do that...," "now that you've got your boy, your 'done' right?" even the occasional, "you go, girl." (which makes me feel really awesome.)

i get the impression that people think this is really "hard."
and if i really want to freak them out i tell them that we don't. even. use. contraception....
no wonder.

what i always really want to say is... really? this seems hard? this is actually easy. i mean, crazy, yes. but it's easy. it is easy not to take a pill everyday to tell my body to not get pregnant, or at least to not stay pregnant. it is easy not to fish around for a condom. e v e r y t i m e y o u d o i t. ew.

i think that sounds hard. in fact, it wears me out just thinking about it.

be free, people. you will feel happier.

but beware, you might end up with gaggles and gobs of children like me.
