SolomonFundy posted a topic in Quiver Full of SnarkNote: I posted this originally to the Sweet Tea & Buttermilk subforum, but we've not really used that since she stopped updating her blog a few years ago. I figured it would be a better fit here. I couldn't find anything in the rules about posting the same topic twice to different forums, but if I am violating a rule, mods please let me know how to fix it. The site is called "Love What Matters", and describes itself as an aggregate for "real stories by real people far and wide, to celebrate the love, kindness and compassion they represent – while reminding us that these things do not happen by default, they’re a daily choice." Whatever that means. The site is full of click-bait titled articles that are user-submitted, and generally feature a bewildering range of stories. I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised at the range of topics and lifestyles represented. On the sidebar of Courtney's story, the site suggested a birth story about quadruplets, a gay (male) couple who welcomed their son via a surrogate, a woman who caught her husband cheating with her best friend, and a bland article about "dating your spouse". Interesting takeaways from Courtney's article: * Her husband originally suggested that they try for 10 kids, but she dismissed the idea on the basis of her age at the time of their marriage. (26) * They have discussed the potential need to use birth control (no idea if this includes chemical, surgical, or just NFP) to prevent future children, if her health requires it. * They would feel "weird" if they went a year or two without having a baby (or two). ? * She "honestly doesn't know" if she'll have more children. She says it depends on whether she has another complicated pregnancy. Pertinent part of the article: * Buuuuutttttt they'll keep "taking them as they come" for now. Thanksgiving Bib Bearer 2020-2035 confirmed.
We haven't had a Courtney thread in a while! She and her preacher husband live in New Mexico with their 7 children, all 5-and-under. She's famous for looking like a teenager well into her 20's, giving her boys monosyllabic "C" names (Clint, Clay, Cade, Cash, Colt, and Case, plus daughter Callie), and for her use of a distinctive Thanksgiving turkey bib for each new baby. She hasn't had a Thanksgiving without a new baby since her marriage. She recently made her Facebook private again, but her Instagram and blog are still up. She doesn't seem to update the blog anymore. I fully admit that this is straight-up creeper territory, but I used a pregnancy calculator to gage the latest possible date that Courtney-of-the-endless-Irish-Twin-births could conceive and STILL produce a new recipient of the hallowed Thanksgiving Bib this year. February 18 is the magic day for a full 40-week gestation ending on or before November 24.
