The kids and I have a favorite song, Three, It's a Magic Number, by Elizabeth Mitchell.
Here is an ok cover if you're curious. :)
It's folksy and easy to sing and sweet, so I love it.
It's also symbolic, because for us, three is our magic number.
It is the right decision for us for several reasons, but I would be lying if I told you I wasn't a tiny bit sad.
It isn't that I am unfulfilled with the three little loves in my life, or that I will always be pining for another one (though I wouldn't have to give it a second thought if the opportunity arose!)
It's just that I can't imagine never feeling a little one move inside me, or holding another newborn.
I don't think the baby fever will ever go away.
But luckily, we've got siblings and friends who will soon be having babies and so my life will never really be baby-less.
I really love where our family is at right now, still quite young but growing, growing and able to do and explore new things.
So that's that.
The Minton five. :)
