We enjoyed number five so much...
Using screw driver for dinner utensils,
Using iPhone cords as repelling devices,
Helping with laundry,
As I was saying, we're enjoying number five so much we thought we'd go for number six. '01-'03-'05-'07-'09...another Arant child coming in the Spring 2012.
The best part of expecting #6 so far have been the comments. People have gone from excitement back in 2001 to compassion and concern in 2012...
"Wow. How many do you think you'll have?"
"You know what causes that, right?"(I've lost count of how many times this has been said)
"At least I don't have to take care of it"
"Are you sure?"
"If you're happy, I'm happy"
Those are just a few of the responses. Most have been very encouraging, especially...
"Don't you see that children are God's best gift? the fruit of the womb his generous legacy? Like a warrior's fistful of arrow are the children of a vigorous youth. Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children! Your enemies don't stand a chance against you; you'll sweep them right off your doorstep." - Psalm 127:3-5 (from the Message)
