My husband and I have two babies. They are fifteen months apart. The work load is crazy. When it all gets to be too much, we look at eachother and say sarcastic things like, "Oh, the joys" and "Our lives are so rich and full - are you experiencing the richness and fullness right now?" When things get really bad we say, "You're not going to go out for a pack of cigarettes and never come back are you?" When we're amused by two screaming children we share an imaginary cigarette and select a brand name for the occasion. Right before having two children, we traveled in SE Asia, Nepal, India, Africa, Central & South American for 16 months. Our lives are different now. Filled with joys... OH, THE JOYS! Seriously.
