Is this some sort of sign?

Tuesday at our weekly park day, another mom asked me if we were "done" having kids. I said yes, as far as we were concerned we are done, but that if God can cause Sarah and Abraham to have a child at the ripe age of 100, He can surely circumnavigate a vasectomy so there are no guarantees and I'm fine with that :-)

Fast forward to last night. My husband was teaching the kids at church, and the lesson is on Patience as one of the fruits of the Spirit. As an example of being patient and waiting, he used waiting for a baby since we currently have at least 3 pregnant women at our church right now, so he knew they would all be able to relate to that. That of course prompted OUR children to ask why we weren't having any more children. Ooops! He dodged that one just by saying we thought four was right for us.

Fast forward to a few hours later. I didn't know anything about his class and their discussion, but suddenly Sari, who isn't even in that class, starts PRAYING to God for a little sister. Over. And OVER. AND OVER again.

So now I'm wondering...Is this a sign??? I just saw yesterday that Vision Forum is hosting some sort of baby conference where the focus is on unlimited family size, and the Duggars as featured speakers. I thought more power to them, but I barely hold on to my sanity any given day with FOUR...

So I'm hoping that all this baby focus is because our friends just had a baby. Either that, or I'll be searching the internet for straight jackets and the closest funny farm, LOL.
Pin It!

when my daughter was about 5, we were in Target one day and I turned around and she was bending on her knees praying, oh how cute I thought then I asked what she was praying for and she said "For you to have a baby"...I was nervouse for a while after that :)

I'll join you at the funny farm - it would be a welcome rest.

It must be in the air. We have literally have had 12 different people ask us if we are having any more. Then add, Lorelai and Sophie asking about mommy having another baby. They are requesting a boy. Hopefully, our trip to Boca this weekend will um end the baby stuff.
