I live in the Mormon state and one of the things we are known for is our large families. What you know it’s true. You see it all: from the minivan with mom and dad and five kids in tow to the suburban with 7 kids including triplets. There seems to be, though, a more common number and a trend: 4. What I see is, that once your third child hits the second birthday mark, then the news of baby due dates or the questioning if you are the next pregnant mama arise.
Growing up I always wanted a large family. If there is anything I’ve learned for sure, is that life doesn’t go as planned. And whose does? Because my life didn’t go as planned, I am a fulfilled mother of three. And I believe I make a PRETTY good job in that department. Even though I know, with certainty, I could continue with a job well done, I don’t want to be asked if I’m joining the trend. NOT AGAIN. I don’t have an answer and record indicates I tend to go against the crowd. Certain matters cannot be compromised because I want to join a trend.
