*Wow, once I got going it wasn't that hard!  I had to pull out several childhood dreams that have already been shelved, but whew, it was kinda fun!*


  1. Do you really want 13?! That's how many by dad comes from and we were so lucky to grow up close to all of that huge family. I want around 8 kids and people think we are nuts. I've stopped telling them a number and just say "We want a brood" LOL. I would love multiples too! What a great list...

  2. Since I am pushing 35 and I only have four, having 13 would be pretty much impossible ;). It's one of those dreams I said goodbye to when I had my first and realized how hard it really is - same with having triplets!
