Random Craziness of my mind

Haven't taken any pictures, but just been thinking lately...scary thing to be sure.

Was talking to a new friend the other day who said she did 5 rounds of IVF (invitro) before she got pregnant with her son and that he cost about $85,000 and took 4 years. I was thinking. What's if I had to pay $85,000 for each of my kids? Man alive. Kids are totally worth it, but I'm so lucky I dont' have to. She was saying that every paycheck for years would all go towards it. Not to mention the emotional stress . My hats off to this cool lady and her hubby.

I went to Costco on Monday cause we had no milk, bread, or anything. The kids were doing great, but really really loud. Baylie was in the bjorn and big kids were in the cart (if you've been to Costco you know how that's possible). Anyway, they were a little rowdy but thoroughly enjoying it other. They were wrestling and laughing and pushing each other. Anyway, we were finally in line and this lady walks up to Luke and says, "She is crying because you are yelling in her ear and that really hurts her and you are damaging her ear...bla bla bla" And I said "No, she is crying cause he just hit her"...which he had just done a split second before. And then she told me how sound damages and I told her that my house is very loud and that I think they were being very good. (what I was thinking was telling her that my kids must be very damaged then cause we are always like this) I salvaged the situation from being intense by asking about her foot cause she was wearing a cast and then later she told me my kids were darling which was good salvaging for her (and true of course), but I've been laughing about it for a couple days now. Taa Daa thats the end of the story.

Ah yes, the unsolicited advice of strangers about parenting. I've been warned to expect much of this over the next 5 months. Sounds like I can look forward to it for much longer then that. What a crazy lady! You probably should have punched her in the face!

You are a SAINT for even asking about her leg!! I can't believe you did!! I would have ran away from her as fast as possible.
