How Ryan sees it:

 

47Are you sure no one’s missing? 

Excerpt from an email between Ryan and his former missionary companions, regarding wives/pregnancies/more kids:

My wife thinks we are done.  It is the weirdest feeling.  It must be how someone with a stalker feels when their pursuer is finally safe behind bars.  No more wondering when she is going to start feeling like "it is time."  No more of the nervous enjoyment you get realizing that your youngest has finally learned something that makes your life a little more sane, while at the same time wondering when someone is going to hit the reset button.  It is just so placid and nice.  I love every one of my kids like crazy, and maybe ... maybe might want another one someday, but it seems like I now have the luxury of deciding that for myself.

So sorry, honey, for stalking you all these years with these extra kids.  Hopefully you and Dave Letterman can breathe a little easier now.

That is so funny! I just read that email between them! I am not sure my husband would let me repost that, but then again, I don't know if i would ask! And sometimes it's not the wife that does the stalking!

Funny email. What does "I now have the luxury of deciding that for myself" mean anyway? Um...doesn't it take two???

Silly men. When will they learn? NOTHING is up to them. We are really in charge.

It is funny cuz my Ryan and I find ourselves in this same situation. But I wonder if my Ryan sees it the same way your Ryan does. ha ha!

Dan still breaks out in nervous sweats because I keep telling him that "one more kid" is out there.

Ryan's stalker just escaped from jail and is lurking aruond on our street.

At least he's not stalking himself.
That's what I do.
Thank you very much for the laugh.

Poor man, it must be difficult to realize you're not really in control of any of the important things in a family...

I hate not knowing for sure if we are done...I mean not knowing for sure. Our last baby was born early and their have been lots of scary circumstances regarding my pregnancy with him and his early birth...so why don't I feel at peace that he is the last? My husband sure feels at peace that John is the last.

This was a really real post. I guess I am a stalker, now. Maybe there isn't even a baby waiting to come...maybe I am just sad that it might be the end?

I meant, "there" not their...

Looks like there is a little extra space in the frame... over on the right... twins could easily fit in there.
