When Breeders Meet

Although the following could be a camp photo, or classroom picture - it's not. It's simply my family and my girlfriend's family (minus us and the men) getting together before the Fourth of July Parade. Her uterus wins top prize for overtime, although you should all know my sickness and know that pictures like this make my ovaries twitch as in just one more? But my brain tries to shut them down with a simple for the love of god no, please no - you'll be the death of me, woman.

I believe you got thar a baseball team of sorts. Or, the beginnings of a fine hotel or restaurant staff...

"Cheaper by the dozen"

I applaud the photographer for a great shot!

Anna said...

So I just did the math, and she's got you two to one, fair and square. Sounds like time for another baby at Get in the Car! :)

I'm exhausted just looking at the picture. I can't believe they're almost all looking at the camera though, and nobody's picking their nose or anything!

That is a great picture.

Kara said...

Great shot. I'm amazed at how you got all but ONE to look at the camera.

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

Oh, you should go for it. You can't let her beat you like that.

Lora said...

Dang, and I thought my sister had a lot of kids with 5. Eight? I have no words...

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

Wow! I can't believe you got all but one of the kids to look at the camera and smile...and I can't believe she has 8 kids! Wow!

Whenever you get that twitch, borrow one of hers for the weekend. Preferably her youngest.
Then see if the twitch is gone by Sunday night.

I'm not a doctor, I just play one in Blogland.

If you really feel competitive, maybe some fertility drugs could boost your production up from one at a time to 4-6 a pop. In one fell swoop, you could potentially match her 8 and raise her one (or two). Plus, your name starts with a "J", so you would become an honorary Duggar.

I know how you feel. I would love to have a dozen kids. *sigh*

Fantastagirl said...

They look so sweet and innocent too... oh... I wish.

Great photo!

andi said...

So she has EIGHT? Holy Moses! I think I'm done at two.

Beck said...

Good golly. And around here I am considered Mrs. Fertile for having THREE.

Daisy said...

Great picture! Was this the calm before the storm? No, don't answer that. :)

Beth said...

It makes my ovaries twitch, too.... IN FEAR!

As for me, I am a firm believer in zero population growth. :)

Am I counting 8 kids from your friend? My goodness, I thought being the oldest of 6 was tough enough...
