    My wife’s already talking about baby #3… Dat feel, bro.

  2. Laurie says:

    Oh my, child #4! Good for you!

  3. Scott says:

    I am staying at home right now with our 6 kids. Finding a babysitter gets tougher after 3, but it’s awesome having this full house…haha.

  4. Danielle says:

    hahaha I’m good with my twins right now, when I tell people that I’m not ready for another for like 4 years that act like kids that far apart is a crime LOL

    • Andy says:

      Yeeeeeah I’m not a fan of that pressure. Kids are amazing, but for some people so are amusement parks, so let me ask this: when was the last time someone got mad or judgmental at you for not going to Disneyland or something? See? Weird and lame.

      • Danielle says:

        ahahaha!! I’m going to start ;) My other favorite is people going you want another??!! And then saying my aunts cousins nieces whatever had 3 sets of twins :0 lol another not so nice response

  5. Lacey S says:

    . . . I guess that’s mad-props to you as a Dad, Andy! She thinks you can handle another :P

  6. Chris says:

    Hmmmm, I’ve got 2 beautiful little girls already. Definitely done! And I’ve already made sure that there will be no more. :)

  7. Sarah says:

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee more babies! Do it.

  8. Zane says:

    My wife won’t let me impregnate her with number two. She is worried she won’t have enough love for another baby, but I figure babies help us to grow love we never had before -oh man, I’m turning into a chick, I’d better get my mangina sorted out and go kill some animals for fun.

    • Andy says:

      Oh wow. I’m intrigued by this so much that I think I’m going to write a post on this concept.

      I think the thought is beautiful, so at least that part of your chick-mind is a babe. Now go skin something and wear it as a headband. You can use a stuffed animal if that’s more readily available.

      • Zane says:

        You think about it…. all that love you feel for the child, where did it come from? I don’t love anyone I already loved less, so I figure it must be a whole new batch of love. if my logic is right, then adding another kid means we add a whole new receptacle of love…. I really am a woman, I just killed a deer, but waxed it instead of enjoying the natural fibres. Then I turned the tail into a thongkini. HELP ME PLEASE! It may be time for a post on recovering our manliness, I think I’ll just not shower for a few days to try and counter these unnatural emotions.

    IT’S A TRAP!

  10. An Idle Dad says:

    We had two, thought we’d try for a third.

    The third was a third and fourth.

    So I guess your wife could be even happier!

    • Andy says:

      Yeeeeeah. She mentioned the the likelihood for twins was higher for us now. I don’t think she realized that wasn’t a great numeric value to toss into the equation. ;)

      • Zane says:

        My Granmother always wanted two – turns out number two was two, three and four, SURPRISE! That was in the 60’s… that is a whole load of extra washing!

  11. Isaac says:

    You said to her
    But Honey I already got you one, here’s Tiffany! & Co. Unless she’s more a Cartier lady.

  12. Shawn says:

    The fun is in the trying…or practicing…(psst… if you time things right, you can get a whole lotta ‘mileage’ out this). Good luck!

  13. Celine says:

    I love babies. Babies grow love. Babies change your life. Babies teach us life lessons. I love them but we are done with two. Almost grown up now. Love what you do to help men to be dad. Successful and caring dads.

    • Andy says:

      Oh I think you give us too much credit, but thanks. Hopefully we’re at least lowering the stress levels of parents, men and women alike, with some laughs and a reminder to buckle up, raising their arms and ENJOY THE RIDE. (Screaming is optional but acceptable.)

  14. Mom101 says:

    She’s subtle. I like that.

  15. Mama Mary says:

    Oh lawdy. I just had an anxiety attack for you.

  16. I think everyone is looking at this all wrong. She said, “I’d be even happier with another baby!” I read, “Let’s have lots and lots of sex right now!” Well, ok, if that’ll make you happy! *Cue Barry White tunes*

    Loving Zane’s comments…possible contributorship?

    • Andy says:

      We have some ideas for the future for guest posting, but we’ve got a lot of balls in the air right now (sorry for the accidental nude handstand visual). His comments ARE quality though.

      • Zane says:

        Today my wife actually said “I’m going to laugh at you when you’re old and your balls are all saggy” (that will teach me for reminiscing about the jugs of yore)- Balls in the air would be a real smack on the chin in that case!

        You need a guest, you just call out my name, and wherever I am, I’ll come running, just to post here again.

    It’s not what your wife said. It’s the “Ahh Shit!” face, you gave her back. priceless!
