New Experiences

Last Friday night, we went to Pancho's for supper. This is not my favorite place to eat, but John loves the turkey rolls, or fluatas, and I do like to please my man (wink) so that's where we wound up. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but we have three kids now, and in my opinion, that's not considered a "large" family. Although today's average family generally consists of only 1 or 2. When I think of a large family, I think of 5 plus. So I was a little surprised when we became the object of many a fellow diner's attention during our meal. First I noticed the looks, then I noticed that people would look and then call their dining partner's attention to look at us as well. There was lots of glancing and nudging going on. Then came the questions: how old are they, how far apart are they, how old is the little one? Now don't get me wrong, I was not bothered or angered by this, just a little....suprised, for lack of a better word. Maybe it was because they are all three under the age of 4? Yea, that was probably it.
If we do fulfill my husband's desire to have 5 (which is a subject of much debate), I can't imagine what it will be like going out in public as a family. I would expect this kind of attention for a family of say, 10, but my goodness! We are not there yet! :)

It probably was just shocking to see such a cute little family!

People do react to that many under 4, I suppose. Mine are so spread out, we never got that response. They are precious, though and don't let it get to you. Everyone just loves looking at little babies.
