The week before Ammon was born, Liam dropped a butcher knife on his toes resulting in a trip to the ER. The guy who glued Liam’s toes back together asked me “What possesses you to have six kids instead of just two or three?” I don’t think I gave a great answer, but I did mention that I’d have lots more babies if I didn’t have to be pregnant. The toe gluer then replied “Oh yeah, the world would be grossly overpopulated if women didn’t have to physically sacrifice through pregnancy.” Profound, no? And I can’t argue there, because who can resist the miraculous beauty of a fresh new life, straight from heaven? Meilani said to me the other day that she loves when we have a new baby in the house because our home is so calm. Considering the moments of crazy we’ve had in the last week, I’m glad the sacred moments of peace are memorable.
