Big Families Say “Laudato Si!”

Just doing our part to save the world, one or two babies at a time.

 Got a big family? Then you already know that you’re crazy, a traitor to feminism, and a slave to the patriarchy; you’re neglecting most of your kids and robbing the rest of their childhood; you’re a burden on the system in general, and you probably don’t own a TV.But wait, there’s more! Don’t forget, you’re also destroying the earth.It’s become fashionable, in the name of the planet, to denounce large families as irresponsible, even selfish. Some politicians and a good many comb … [Read more...]

Carve Out Time for These Few Essentials

AS0000019F08 Pregnancy, pregnant mother with child

You'll also find regular exercise gives you more energy to do something that is absolutely essential: putting in some one-on-one time with your other kids. It's all too easy for them to feel displaced and neglected when the new baby comes, so it is essential to carve out some special time to connect with them, consistently and intentionally, academically, emotionally, spiritually, and just for some plain old silly old mommy-and-me fun, or else they will grow up to be crack whores.Read the … [Read more...]

I don’t know nothin’ about raisin’ no babies, apparently.

An experienced mother is never taken by surprise. Unless there is a shark in the house.

That's not a naked bottom. That's a grenade, and you are its next victim unless you take evasive action. I don't care how many times the baby just pooped, how many gallons she produced, and how finished you reckon she must be by now.

baby sleeping

New baby gifts! Fun to receive, fun to give, almost impossible to get wrong.The only truly unwelcome baby present I've ever gotten was tucked into the bottom of a "welcome, new baby!" basket from my church: it was a pamphlet titled something like, "So, Hear Me Out, Now. There's This Thing Called NFP That You Might Maybe Want to Try. . . ". And yes, this was after I had literally written the book on NFP.I really can't complain, though. I'm horrible about giving baby gifts, myself. I … [Read more...]

Two weeks old!Here is Corrie having a little snuggle and a big yawn: A moment of deep thought: and a little bit of friendly hazing: Listening very carefully to everything I say: And a schnoogly woogly woogly nap: Oh, those baby lips! Oh, those hairy werewolf ears! Here we decided to see who could do the best Corrie face.

Over and over again


Pro-lifers routinely refer to "the miracle of life," a phrase which isn't really technically accurate.  A miracle is, strictly theologically speaking, an event which wouldn't happen ordinarily in nature.  It's something which only happens because of the special intervention of God. If you're going to look at sheer numbers, it's hard to imagine anything less miraculous, or more ordinary and natural than the conception of a child.  It's something that's happened billions of times, often without an … [Read more...]
