Yes, we do own a TV



Telling people that we are pregnant with our 4th child leads to some pretty funny reactions.

So far I have had:

So you must like kids then?!
You'll be busy!
Haven't you figured out what makes them yet?
Don't you own a TV?
And a few other random comments.

But thankfully a large majority of friends and family have just said congratulations and were simply happy for us.

And I am so grateful that people can just be happy for us. I was a little hesitant to tell certain people as when we announced we were pregnant with Ethan (our 3rd) they just assumed that he was an accident because we already had a boy and a girl, so why would we want another baby.

Those people never congratulated us and I still remember those conversations over 4 years later.

Have you ever had any negativity when announcing that you are expanding your family? How did you deal with it?

  1. Oh my word yes! Our most common one was "do you know what's causing it?"

    Funny thing is though now he's born, is we are often asked when we are having number 5!

  2. I must project some air of insanity, because I've never had comments, or been asked if I'm having more.

  4. Yes! We're half way along with #3 and people are often shocked that we would... I thin this is it for us.. although I crave more! But I know people would have even bigger reactions to #4! Praying for a safe and smooth pregnancy for you... children really are such a blessing. PS. We don't have a TV ;) hehe!
