How do you spell v-a-s-e-c-t-o-m-y?

Well, since Ben kinda already let the cat outta the bag with all his talk about my "cravings" and all, I guess I'll just make it official: Ben knocked me up... again. When we were specifically trying to not get pregnant. Because we were supposed to be on a tropical cruise on the VERY DAY I'M EXPECTING, which also happens to be THANKSGIVING DAY. So it appears that when Ben and I decide to be done procreating, we'll have to both get snipped. Because let's face it, I'm more fertile than the Tennessee Valley.

By the way, we're really excited to have three kids aged 3 and under. Woo-hoo.

UPDATE: After re-reading this post, I've realized that it is rather cheeky sounding. Let me just say that we are very excited for this baby, if not a little apprehensive and overwhelmed. Thank goodness we have 7 1/2 months to prepare and to get Cash and Maggie enrolled in a boarding school. (Look at me using words like "rather" and "cheeky"! I've been watching a little too much Mary Poppins, I reckon!)

Oh, and don't any of you fret your pretty little heads over our cruise-that-has-to-be-cancelled. The tickets we bought are good for two years, and the plan is to go next March and leave the kids with grandma. (Here's your heads-up, Mom).

I didn't even do anything. I think I just looked at her sexy. That's how potent my love is.

You guys should go on that new game show - "Are You Sexually Smarter Than a Fifth Grader." I believe you would both get your hiney's kicked. Hiney: that's the private part located on your back side.

Congrats anyway - love ya both!

Congrats! You will definitely have your hands full, I'm sure, but your kids will have so much fun playing together!

Jen said...

So exicited for the new kid - so tragically depressed for the cruise that can not be...

wait... just get induced a week or two or three before... take he/she (them if it's twins) with you! Come on... its a cruise.. and they just sleep in the beginning anyway!

Greg just said we'll go on a cruise with you in the next couple of months... you can go up to being 26 weeks preggers! Just thinking of 3 kids under 3 makes me need a vacation!

Brittany said...

Congratulations, Kat! Three kids! Now THAT'S a family. You're getting real serious now. Not only that, but you'll be outnumbered!

I want to go on a cruise, too. But to have one on the horizon and then have that dashed to pieces...! You should find a way to go, anyway.

So when can we hang out?

Nathan said...

So does this mean there are a couple of tickets for a cruise that are up for grabs? Maybe we can pay for your vasectomy in exchange for them ;)

Kim said...

Congratulations! I hope it's twins.

Carolyn said...

Wow, congratulations you guys (I think)!! You'll definitely have your hands full!

Jocelyn said...

Congratulations, Fertile Mertle! I guess you just can't stand to have a family reunion without having a baby shower ;)

crazy4danes said...

Bringhursts said...

WHAT!!! Looks like I'll have to get going to catch up again.

Andrea said...

Congrats, you guys. I'm so not ready for 3 yet!!

Matt Clayton said...

How about your kids in boots? Please. I'll do it for free.

theriddle said...

Congratulations! That is so wonderful!

Lorell said...

Yeah!!!!! Nice work (or not work)to you both! You think about getting pregnant for one second, and then BAM! Conceived!

THREE KIDS AHHHHHH!

Maybe this kid won't have Ben's toes.

Grandma always said that Grandpa just had to lay his pants on the bed and she would get pregnant. So see Ben, if you would jsut hang your pants in the closet you would be going on a cruise. ;)

Erin said...

Yay! Niece or nephew number 8! You know, I am Aunt to more nieces/ nephews than all of my siblings! Jonathan, you can't even come close on that one. Beat you all in that department, ha :)

You guys HAVE to go on a cruise. Can't you reschedule??? Or, Kat, who cares if you give birth on the ship? I'm sure they keep a doctor on board and I bet you could claim a spa all to yourself for some nice relaxing laboring!

That's great news. Our latest was a bit of a surprise, too. So we have a 4 year old, a 2 year old, and a 5 month old...and my son (from my first marriage) who is almost 11. It can be a challenge, but so can Ben, so you'll do great and have even more people in your family to love. So will this make 2 new Quinns this year?

Xavier & Emily said...

Congratulations! You make such cute kids, so why not have another one, right? I'm excited for you guys!

i'm kelly said...

mama jo said...

How do you spell U-P-D-A-T-E? Come on...EVEN if it's letting me know how sick you are, I still need some Quinn Family News.
