The W Family Chronicles

Infertility, explained.

Posted on: July 28, 2007

No wonder we couldn’t get pregnant!  I was going about it all wrong.  According to J, you have to eat carrots and peanut butter to get a baby.  Since the very idea of carrots and peanut butter together sounds a little gross, I guess I now know where we screwed up.

Other J tidbits…he wants me to have another baby, a girl this time please.  And we must name her Charlotte.  A lovely name, but I don’t think it’s the one we would use!  I’ve had a girl’s name for years now and if we ever have a girl, I plan to use it.  Unless I change my mind.  About having another baby OR the name.  Either one is possible.

I guess eventually I’m going to have to explain to him how babies are normally made.  When he asked how C got in my tummy, I just told him the doctor helped to put the baby there.  It was easy and it was true.  At 3, he didn’t really need more info than that.  Unfortunately, if he repeats that to anyone it’s going to sound a little odd since I’m not married to a doctor.  Maybe that wasn’t such a smart move after all…

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
