Tonight, Daddy belongs to her...

Now tell me, at the end of your life, what is it you will have chosen instead of gobs and oodles and scads of children? Didn't you know God Himself says "Happy is the man whose quiver is full of them?"

May God give all of us the grace to know when to just have fun in the middle of the night when one of the kids can't sleep.

That girl is cute.

The one thing Michael didn't try when Mary couldn't sleep at the church camping trip (more's the pity)!

Cute!!! That is awesome. Kids are amazing!

"...at the end of your life...? Didn't you know...?"

Reminds me, as a negative example, of this powerful short story from the turn of the 20th century by Kate Chopin, who many regard as a proto-feminist (though her grandson disagreed http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kate_Chopin).
