Blessings, yes! I enjoyed this post...but it makes me sad, how society views children as being such a bother.

Oh Paige, I wish you could hang out with me more often in the circles I run in where 7 is 'average'! You would love the counter-cultural view and stories of big families (10+)

Excellent post, Paige!

You missed one, though - one that I am already getting, when I tell people that I'm not ready to decide to be 'done' (as if I could ever really decide that):

Yes.
I do know what causes it.
