When do/did you know you were done having babies?

It seems like every few weeks I get that baby urge.  You know the big desire to have another baby.  I am getting closer to 29 but I still have several good years left to have a baby.  I just think about the sweet baby smiles, the many first in that first year of life.  I think about pregnancy and I have been blessed with two pretty good ones.  

My husband thinks we are done since we have our boy and girl.  He came from a family of 2, but I came from a family of 3 so its hard!  I know kids are expensive and I know we would love to have an empty nest when we are young still.  :)  We hope that our kids will get married and have children when we are younger too!  :) 

I also do not want another c-section!  I had a normal vaginal birth with my daughter but with my son it was c-section.  IT WAS THE WORST EVER!!  Even with those memories I still think about the love from everyone during that time, food brought over, friends taking my older daughter, and cute baby gifts from everyone!  God sure took care of me and my family when it took me weeks to recover from that surgery! 

So women, when do you truly know when to be done having kids?  I just wish God would speak directly to me and tell me.  :)

I thought we were done, but now I'm not so sure. You have to pray about it and see what God says. You'll know... A good friend of mine told me that "God will never give you anything you can't handle." He knows you better than anyone, right? I you feel you are done, then you're done. But just be open to changes. :) I never dreamed I would want more than my 2 I have now... I come from a family of 6 so I know what my mother has gone through. Just pray about it you never know

I have had two really bad pregnancy/post partum experiences so after I saw that I had a boy and a girl I decided right there that I was done.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
