We are Presbyterian not Baptist so maybe that's how it's happening.

You know the reasons Baptist's don't dance? It's like having sex standing up.

It's gonna have to be after I get snipped. I'm pretty sure she's already called the doctor to schedule my appointment.

As soon as we knock out number 2, I'm doing the same.

There are lots of kids who we could adopt if we find ourselves wanting a 4th later.

Re: Things I Love


My boss and his wife have 4 boys. They're a busy bunch. A bricklayer I know has 4 girls. I can't imagine how crazy that house is.

I know many families with 6-9 kids. Something about Christian's who home school...

I've got 3 boys, I think they will keep me busy. Nothing wrong with a lot of kids but from an economical approach as well as time with them, and family trips, etc, my wife and I agree we're done.

As the business grow's and things change and I eventually run the company, it will be easier to do that with 3 kids than 6 or 8.

Seems like a reasonable number. It might be regional but I don't know anyone presently with more than 5 kids.

One of the families in Alberta that owns a bunch of dealerships had 16 kids. The one I know is the youngest and he's in his 50s.

I don't know anyone who's not a Christian and home schooling their kids who has more than 5.

Kidding, maybe... hard to think of everyone I know though.

I know 2 with 9 kids, probably 4 with 8 kids, a couple more with 7, and a good many with 6.


Oh and one with 12.

Congrats! And that's awesome you guys had a home birth. My wife had our second at home and it was an awesome experience. We have number three due mid March. All boys.

Our first started at home and ended in the hospital due to length of labor and lack of "progress".

Second was a 3 hr labor, born at home, it was fantastic.

Third was a 14 hr labor that was very hard and if we knew how it would have gone at the start of it all, we would have gone to the hospital. I tell people, everything about home birth is fantastic except the laboring without pain meds. My wife made me proud for how strong she was through it, but I couldn't make her go through that again.

Re: Things I Love


My guess would be speed, which evaporated the gel and then ignited it.

Re: Things I Love


I guessed wrong

Sonoluminescence, which I've heard of, but not on this scale. Usually microbubbles.

This sounds about right for our cities' caliber of criminal.
