Why Charis Likes Graduation Parties

I want to hold her!!!


So, that girl in the second picture (in the background)....why's SHE so upset? That's the first thing JJ noticed. :)

Simeon would NOT be happy if he was passed around that much.

Charis thrives on being passed around. It's really funny. I think it has something to do with coming into a larger family with siblings who essentially do that all day. Or it may just be her leisurely disposition.

Lucy is a little social bug also. A funny thing I observed: A small dog will get more attention in the store these days than an adorable child. Pretty sad. Think I will stop taking the little mutt with me everywhere.

Move to the Midwest, people still love children.

Seriously, when we visit the west coast, people look at us like we are from some freakish fundamentalist cult hellbent on overpopulating the earth. Out here, people smile and want to hold the baby.

That's interesting what you point out about the west as opposed to the midwest. I haven't been in the midwest with children for an extended amount of time to notice the difference. There are times that I feel my children are just an annoyance to people though. It makes me sad.

"Move to the Midwest," he says, "where people still love children." Do you think it's the larger Catholic population in the area where you live? I'd be interested to hear more of your thoughts on this (West versus MidWest attitudes about children).

It seems every time I'm out with the boys, I get the comment, "Wow! YOU have your hands full."

Nah. I think people mistake my kids for dogs with all their hair!
