  1. Patti may I share this with my readers?

  2. Of course! I'd be thrilled! If you want the HTML code for the whole post I'll send it to you. Just email me.

  3. Oooh what a great idea! I look forward to reading...and hopefully participating too!

  4. Just found out about this and I hope I find time to join hehe. We have 4 and every time we tell people we are not done yet they look at us as if we have 2 heads :oP

  5. Sounds interesting... we have five kids, and a slightly unusual story. I hope I can find the time to join!

  6. Lol, I just spent a LONG time writing a post about how our kids came to be (we didn't "plan" or "decide" anything, they were all surprises:) and I realized that I didn't really answer any of the questions really BECAUSE of that. We are conscious parents once they're here, but we didn't really do the planning. We were a little too fertile, I guess. So now I don't know if I should even submit it. I'm a dingbat.

    1. It sounds perfect. I can't wait to read it!

    2. Oh hi there! I didn't know you were participating! I look forward to seeing you in the carnival, Byn! I just wrote my entry, too.

  7. Oh my, I just discovered this now! I may try to bust out a post tomorrow for this, but if not, I really look forward to reading all the entries! This is just up my ally and often on my mind! Also glad to have just discovered (or rediscovered?) your blog. Thanks!

  8. This looks really interesting, and I wish I'd known about it before time! Will you be holding any more?
