Giving Thanks



Dear Fertile Eggs,

I'm so thankful for all the wonderful eggs you have released for me . . . but, can you please hold out this time for the male swimmers . . . I know they are slow . . . and take their time about things . . . but that's how males are . . . you know . . . they do things in their own sweet time . . . but just this once, the very last time . . . I promise . . . I won't bother you any longer . . . please, just wait for the slow swimming males?! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter and I hope this issue can be resolved smoothly.

Kind Regards,
Owner/CEO of Fertile Eggs

Dear Body,

I thank you for all the fun times we have had together. I thank you for letting me use you for three miraculous births. Sorry about all the surgeries, but I'm tiny and didn't fare will being stretched to the outer limits. I know you are tired and old, but I need to ask one more favor. Please let's just get through one more pregnancy, I promise I will eat well, I will rest often and I will sleep at night (or try to). Just one more healthy pregnancy is all I will ask. Then I swear, I will stop eating entire containers of Trader Joe's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups and enitre bags of potato chips! Thanks again!

Kind Regards,
Owner/CEO of T's Body

Dear Hubbie,

Thank you for all your glorious X chromosomes, but I want some Y ones please. I know you are worried about having another baby . . . but really . . . we can do this . . what is one more . . . it's just ONE MORE. . . . I need another baby in my life, our children want another sibling . . . another baby (a boy preferably) would make our family complete. Please, dear hubbie, will you please say yes this month? This Friday and Saturday will be good timing days. I would forever be in your debt!

Love, T
PS - my brother thanks you for the box of condoms
(I'm just trying to hurry your decision you know)

Dear Son,

Thank you for your persistent reminders that you do not have a brother and that you need one as much as you need air. I love to listen to your reasoning each day as to the whys you want and need a brother. Please remember to say these things in front of daddy more often. You are a great brother to your sisters, but I know you will be the best big brother in the world.

Love, Mom

Dear Daughter,

Thank you for your spunk, your vitality for life, your adventurous nature, your independence, your sparkly eyes, your constant movement throughout the day, your ability to melt my heart with one look into my eyes. Thank you dear daughter for being my first daughter.

I love you, Momma

Dear Baby Girl,

Thank you for being my baby for the past two years. I know you must grow and blaze your own trails, as is the way when you turn two. But my arms are yearning for another baby to place in the arms that you leave empty these days. I thank you for still sleeping in my arms at night and letting me treat you like you are much younger than two years old. You my dear curly haired baby take my breathe away.

I love you so much, Momma

Dear God,

Thank you for always being there for me . . . for listening to me at 3 AM in the morning when I can't sleep . . . for watching over me and my family . . . for always taking the time to be by my side . . . for giving me the most amazing children in the world . . . but can I ask you something . . . can I please have a baby boy . . . I know that it is incredibly selfish of me to ask and I know that I am pushing my luck . . . I just always wanted two girls and two boys . . . just think about it and let me know what you think.

Your child, T
