Quite a list! It appears we have a lot in common - especially the love of the black family. My only thing is that I would freak out if my wife told me she wanted another child. She was breathtaking when she was pregnant, so beatiful. But I have memories and pictures, and those will have to do!

You would freak out? No way!

I have been over to your cyber spot and it looks like you only have one son. You have to have more; he's so adorable. And his skill with the remix could be legendary.

You said it yourself, "She is breathtaking..." Go ahead, give it another whirl!

Isn't it funny how the desire for a baby, another baby, just grabs hold and not let you go! As if one is predestined to bring this 'life' into the world.
Go for it and good luck!

I love so many of those things too.

I am 53 years old. And I have one daughter. She is 27 years old. I was a single parent. I am now semi-retired and am finally living my dream life as a freelance writer.

Know what? I still want to have another baby. LOL

Does it ever leave you? I don't think so.

Pregnancy was one of the happiest times of my life. And havng a newborn infant was so wonderful. All of the babies born in my family now...get spoiled rotten by me, my mother and my sisters.

We are on the fourth generation. My brother's oldest daughter just had her second son three weeks ago and I could not wait to get to her house to hold that baby.

Yes; The Black Family is one of the most important units in the world today.

Idrissa: I agree. I don't think the desire to "birth" again ever really leaves you. Of all the things I've experienced in life, pregnancy was, hands down, the most magical, complete, and fulfilling experience of all. I had a wonderful, Jamaican-American woman doctor whose tender hands seemed created to usher babies into the world. If there were a "next time around" for me, I would love to experience it with a midwife, in a home-based setting, with a warm fire in the distance, soft music, and the sounds of my children in the other room.

Cheers, J, to whatever your heart so desires!

Oh Lord Idrissa!

Please do not tell me THIS pining doesn't go away. I can not be 50+ thinking about babies. This man will flee the country.

I was in the store today looking at bottles and baby paraphenalia thinking..."What am I thinking?" But it's like needing to take a healthy cleansing breath, If I don't do it, I fear I'll die! (well not really, but you know what I mean)

I love your list.

You make me think that I wish I could have a chai and get my feet rubbed right this second. And, I'm going through wanting another baby too...except I don't know where he or she would sleep in our apartment.

I loved reading your list. Made me think of some things that I really love.
If ever there was a wrong time in my life to be pregnant it is now, but I want this baby I'm carrying. I always said I was done (I have 4 already!), but the second I realized I could think of nothing I wanted more.

It is so good to see you back. You were missed.

Welcome Liz,

I know the apartment dilemma well.

Ebony,

It is good to see you. I hope your New Year is going well. Congrats on the new baby. I am saying a prayer for you and the fam.

I have to say that although I enjoyed my one and only pregnancy immensely and I do enjoy my beautiful twin daughters and the life we have together, I am not trying to experience again all of the various stages between pregnancy and the age of my girls now (11 years old).

The stages we are at now,(me as a parent, and the girls as soon to be teens, is exciting enough, without the added drama of pregnancy and little babies. I love little babies, but I had my fill of them when I got two at one time. That was more than enough for a lifetime.
