Must share

Okay, so I am probably a little too excited about this, but I just had to share with all of you other Moms, Moms-to-be, or friends of Moms who were wondering what would be the perfect gift to give this year.

It's a Bumkin waterproof bib! No, not just a bib, a practical t-shirt. With pockets to catch the food, a tie in the back (your kid will no longer be able to rip off the velcro), easy to clean, and comes in cute designs!

I'll take the sex, hold the baby please.

It's no secret I like to have sex. I mean, really, who doesn't? (well, I suppose, nuns probably don't and any teenager probably shouldn't, but you know what I mean). It would seem, however, that there is one inconvenient side effect that comes with having sex...that would be children. As I've oh-so-recently done the whole three kids three and under thing, I'd reallllly like to avoid another adorable little side effect any time soon.

For the first time in nearly forever (or so it seems), I'm neither currently pregnant or nursing. Which, excitingly, opens up a vast array of birth control options. My husband and I have always been fans of (ahem) raincoats but, well, frankly the (double ahem) interruption* is starting to annoy me. The thought of all those interrupted fĂȘtes between the bedsheets ahead of me is a little, on to Plan, no, no, not the morning after pill, I meant something other than condoms.

Anyway, as I mentioned before, I have little to no experience in non-condom birth control, so I was hoping you'd share some of yours. In my particular case, I'd love to have something that is fairly low-hormone, as my family has a history of being hormonally uber-sensitive. Also, personally, I'm hoping for something that doesn't take all that long to leave the system because it won't be too too long before we'd like to start trying to conceive again (have no fear for my sanity, however, it isn't all THAT soon either). Whether your particular form of BC fits those restrictions or not, however, doesn't really matter, I'd still love to hear your opinion on all things contraceptive related...even if it's just that your sister's roomate's cousin got pregnant with an IUD in and the baby came out holding it in his hand (that's possibly a true story too ;). Do tell!

*TMI*TMI*TMI: When I kept on misspelling the word interruption in the second paragraph, my automatic spellchecker kept on bringing up the option of int-eruption...which, considering we're talking about sex here, amused me to no end. Just thought I'd share for the dirtier minded of y0u.
