Answers to some questions...

Good Morning and Happy Thursday!

I received some questions on email from someone who just wants to go by "J" and here they are:

Do you and your sister wives do any prenatal care outside the home?  
Yes, we have a doctor in town and she's cool with us.
Do you have a OB/Gyn that visits you?  
Yes, the same doctor.
Do you prefer to birth naturally, in your home?  What about your sister wives?  
Yes, we do! I had to have the twins in the hospital but the rest of my kids and all of them (I hope) will be born at home. It's just a lot nicer and there's no social workers to deal with afterwards.

Do you or your sisters use a birthing pool to have your babies?
No. We have a big shower in the master bathroom and that's where we do it because it's tons easier to clean up.

What do you think of unassisted childbirth or orgasmic childbirth?
Hate to say I don't know what that is.
 
(After I replied to him I looked it up here: http://www.unassistedchildbirth.com/ )

Do you and your sisters help each other with the births?  Such as delivering each other’s babies?  Or does Steve get involved here?
The OB/Gyn or sometimes a midwife comes out to the house and everyone else is usually involved too. It's a family thing and the older kids sometimes will get to see a baby born.
 
And Andrew had a question if Steve was trying to give me a baby and the answer as usual is yes! LOL!
 
There you go!

Happy September!!

It's  September again and it's the start of my happy season: Fall!

I love the summer and running around without shoes and getting to wear sun dresses, shorts, and tanks, but fall is my favorite season! It's the start of the time when the evenings have a chill in the air and when I can grab a child and pull him close and it's not too hot to enjoy cuddle time!

Tomorrow is my 26th birthday and while we don't have too much planned I know there will be some lovely surprises in store for me tomorrow and I can't wait!

The season starts off with baby news because Cydne is for sure pregnant again and is due around the end of May next year. Christie QUIT her job after a lot of years and is going to be home 24/7 from now on and I can't tell you all how happy that makes me to have her home! Amy is doing well and has her two month anniversary soon and she's starting to relax a bit and enjoy how we do things our own way back here at the ranch.

My little Laura is wearing glasses now and she is nearsighted with an astigmatism and the eye doctor says it is pretty common for red heads. She's not too bad with the eyesight but was pretty happy to be able to see a lot further than before and spent the last week telling us all about all the things around the ranch!

The election craziness is pretty wild. It's crazy how Donald Trump became a racist and all those awful things only after he said he was running for President. Before that everyone liked him just fine. To me he just seems like an awful lot of people I know who just say what they think without trying to make it sound like something they don't think. That used to be called honesty but people don't like honesty anymore.

Hillary looks sick and it seems like a lot of people are not wanting to think about it. You just look at her in 2008 and look at her now and you see it plain as day. Doesn't mean she's too sick to do the job but she's got something going on and I pray for her healing and for her peace.

People are getting up now and it's time for me to go get breakfast started so I hope you all have a wonderful September and the start of fall!

Hugs!
