How Much is Too Much

Many of you know by our Christmas card announcement, that good 'ol Robin is preggos. Whoo Hoo!
Our cute little kiddos have already decided to nickname this new little addition, Rerun (we do not yet have an official name picked out).  Most of the people who heard I was having my fifth child (fourth BOY!) were excited for us.  But when I head to the store with all four kids in tow and my basketball belly, 

. . . I see a few looks like "what are you getting yourself into" and I've had a many people say, "Wow! You sure have your hands full." And sometimes, it makes me wonder, what HAVE I gotten myself into?

I recently saw this quote on Pinterest and I had to share (if anyone knows what book this comes from, please let me know):

Now, I am not saying that this is me, but it makes me feel better on hard days. The question is, now that I am going to have five rug-rats running around, what does that make me?  

Yes, I do live in Utah, so I know of people with five or more kids.  But most of my friends have between 1-3 kids. Obviously we shouldn't judge each other and do what we feel is right for our families, but what is your opinion?
