Cluck of the Week: Birth control

Sitting on the porch this afternoon, basking in the warmish sun of early Spring, the kids and I took turns scooping out palmfuls of gourmet granola. I savored the pecans, Bella the cranberries, and Javi the coconut. The seeds? Those were gobbled up by Fancy and Lulu.

Javi: "Sometimes I think I want another little brother or sister, but then the chickens eat my food or poop on my shoe and I'm glad I just have to put up with Bella."

Yes, my friends. I've taken it as a opening to remind him of each and every annoying quirk his sister and his chickens bring to his life. Let's just say he's taken to screaming "I do NOT want any babies!" when he sees me coming.

That's called birth control.

    How cute! I love the pictures,Kelly. :)

    My oldest son constantly says he never wants to have kids. Too much work, but still kind of sad. Is that the message I'm sending?

  • SmartBear

    What? His sister doesn't eat his food? LOL!My little brother stole my food off my plate all the time...not to mention all the marshmallows out of the Lucky Charms. I need to get me some chickens so my son doesn't get any ideas about adding another tot to the mix!

    Just the thought of diapers would be enough for me!

  • Draft Queen

    Kids. As if they get to call the shots! It's good for Javi you weren't planning on giving him one anyway! (Though I'd venture to guess he'd love them regardless.)

    So cute though.

  • Bibliomama

    I never get tired of 'shit my kids say' posts. Awesome.

    Oh, I think Bella is handful enough, eh? Although she probably doesn't poop on Javi's shoe.

  • Hyacynth

    HA!! Priceless.

  • Justine

    Sometimes it's all a matter of perspective isn't it? :)

  • Liz Mays

    That's the most unusual method of birth control I've ever heard about and probably the most effective! LOL

  • Moore Minutes

    LOVE the pictures. What kind of granola do you guys have?

  • Dalia - Gen X Mom

    That's funny. As always I love your pictures. And keep the 'funny things my kids say' coming. Love them!
