Adding it all up

7 hours of thinking, "Oh, no, what have I done? I already have two kids under four."


9 months of sickness and discomfort, ranging from mild to severe


3 hours of intense pain, and at the end a kind of agony which seems to separate you from your very body


12 months of sleep deprivation which plays havoc with your marriage and your sanity

= What?


I would do it all again in a heart beat, my love. A hundred times over.

  1. Happy birthday to your gorgeous little fellow ...of course we all would.

    Had I been younger or made different choices I would have more children.

    (I forgot how old your other little ones are - I know it's an old post but it needed a comment ;) )

  2. Hello Marilyn
    He is just gorgeous.
    I'm a mum of only one-now aged 23 but he's still my baby.
    I very much enjoy you articles in the Catholic Weekly.
    I'm a convert to Catholicism -4 years now-and I wonder how I ever lived without it.
    Blessings from Annie

    1. Thanks for your comment Annie. I can't believe that little boy in the picture is five years old now!!

      Twenty three IS still a baby isn't it? :)
