Glad to hear I'm as boring as some of you :). Want to go get a burrito?

To answer two questions that were asked - Rachel wanted to know if we were going to have more kids. And the definitive answer is NO. Actually, we did contemplate it for about 3 seconds once when Audrey was teeny tiny and sleeping through the night at 6 weeks old. We thought, heck, we can do this! Piece of cake! The she started cutting teeth, then she started getting ear infections and not sleeping through the night and that idea went right.out.the.door. Plus, I like to stick to man-to-man defense. I don't like to be outnumbered.

Swampwitch wants to know what a Hokie is. The origin of the word "Hokie" has nothing to do with a turkey. It was coined by O. M. Stull (class of 1896), who used it in a spirit yell he wrote for a competition.

Hoki, Hoki, Hoki, Hy.
Techs, Techs, V.P.I.
Sola-Rex, Sola-Rah.
Polytechs - Vir-gin-ia.
Rae, Ri, V.P.I.
(V.P.I. stands for Virginia Polytechnic Institute).

The Hokie Bird, is modeled on a large turkey, has been the official sport mascot of Virginia Tech since 1961.
Intimidating, huh?

Not as intimidating as my Maryland Terrapins...LOL. My husband's a Hokie, also.

Well, I guess you learn something new everyday!

Interesting...the Hokie bit. Well, and the no more kids thing, too....hell, I'm struggling with whether or not to have a second child...let alone a third.

Nope, not intimidating at all. The mighty 'Canes can crush them flat.

I saw your turkey on a car the other day and felt really sorry for them.

That Turkey is hysterical.

I'm not a big college anything I have no mascot to threaten your turkey's ass! LOL

I hear you on the kids...I think man to man is the way to go too.

We've even thought about a 3rd. I think we're crazy. We can't handle 3. We can't afford 3. I know this, but a little voice in the back of my head is still contemplating names. I hope I can smush it before it takes control.

Man to man defense, for sure! When I think of myself with a third child the only picture that plays in my head is me sitting in the middle of the floor pulling my hair out while my three, four, five, whatever, children circle me like little Indians.

Two it is!

Oh Come On! Have a third. You know you want to....
