no buns in this oven!

LP really, really wants another kid. It is a fight that has been going since the day after my youngest was born. That was almost 6 years ago. Who knows, maybe he will win the fight. But not yet. Anyway, I remember how it felt and I still have mixed feelings about it...I loved having a baby doing somersaults in my abdomen, but on other days I felt like just sitting around eating ice cream.

The only time my husband came close to getting shot was the day he told me, "You know, if you exercise more during pregnancy, labor will be quicker!"

Yeah, he almost lost a specific body part on that one.

So today since I could not come up with my own top 5, is this jewel list I found over at TopFive. Enjoy! Oh and by the way, my youngest was also born 4 days before the Rams won the Superbowl in 2000. I cut it close, I know. But he showed up, I was happy!

Great list!

No comment on the rest. Those decisions are so intensely personal. Hopefully you and the hubs can find common ground on that.
