Scarred for Life

I over heard Doodle and Beano and Dubs talking at the kitchen table the other day.
Their conversation went something like this.
Beano: When I grow up I'm going to have 10 kids.
Dubs: When I grow up I'm going to have 100 kids, I'm going to need a really big house!
Doodle: I'm only going to have 2 kids; do you know how hard it is to push babies out?!?! (sounding completely appalled)
She went on to explain that she wants 2 kids , preferably twins (so she only has to go through labor one time), so that they will not be spoiled and mean.
I think it may have been a mistake for me to let her be here for Little M&M's birth.
I think she may be scarred for life.
Plus I think she's one smart cookie, why didn't I think of that plan 3 children ago?
Not really though, I would not trade any one of them for all the riches in the world.
They are so good (most of the time) and I can not imagine my life without any one of them.
Even Little M&M has worked her way so deep into the fabric of our lives that it seems she's always been a part of us.
When I was on the phone with my grandma (Little M&M's name sake), telling her of Little M&M's birth she said, "I think Heavenly Father tricks us into having more babies. None of us would do it more than once if we were in our right minds."
I think she may be right, at least Doodle thinks so!
