The Legal Insurrection Family is Growing… Again!
Slowly building up the Mini Insurrection contingent
Yet again, my husband Jeff and I are thrilled to announce that our family is growing!
We’re expecting a baby boy this fall, on Thanksgiving Day or thereabouts. We have much to be thankful for, indeed.
Children are truly a gift, a tremendous blessing, and a wonderful opportunity to enjoy love wholly and experience the world in all sorts of new ways.
Not entirely sure how we’ll juggle it all, but I keep telling myself I’ll figure it out. Just gonna roll with it.
We are incredibly excited to meet our little man. The girls are too, though I’m not sure they’re quite prepared for the joys of a little brother.

A blessing, for sure. Congratulations and best of luck as you and your family await your son. As you’ve no doubt been told, boys are a different species!
Yes and thank you! Really have no clue what we’re getting into here, but does anyone?
We don’t understand until it is too late, then we are on a fast ride with no choice to get off.
We had two daughters, four years apart. The second was special needs. My wife kept asking about trying for a boy, I said no, because we had our hands full with a special needs child. Besides, I believe that boys and girls alike should be exposed to cooking, sewing, taking things apart and building things. Regardless of gender, we all need similar skills at different points in our lives. Developing skills is good for their character and self confidence.
Now I have three grandsons, and yes, they are much harder to deal with than girls, well until puberty and riding herd to make sure they do not end up pregnant.
I see lots of people with four or more children, often all one or the other gender.
I’m fully ready for the challenge 🙂
Gender is the man’s fault, but throughout history women took the blame when there were no male offspring 🙂 Some paid with their life.
Your husband does, but he ain’t talking.
Haha. Truth be told, he’s a fantastic father. Very involved with the kiddos and a great parent across the board.
That’s the claim: the male sex is from Mars, the female sex is from Venus, and babies are conceived on Earth.
It’s true though.
I was born a male and have remained that way for quite awhile. As it were, I wouldn’t change a thing but I can also tell you that, from the moment I first discovered the “difference”, I liked girls!
Lord only knows what your girls will think when they find out about the “difference”.
Congratulations on the good news. It is comforting to know that there are regular folks out there, as you and Jeff, who know what to do and take it upon themselves to do so.
Regardless of gender, they need the right balance of love and discipline.
<3. Thank you!
Ms. Kaye, congratulations! Years ago, my wife and I had a boy and then a girl. I tend to think things go better for everyone if the order is girl-boy. If that’s true, then you’re all set!
Thank you! I always figure that with these things, the Good Lord knows who needs us and knows who we need and fully trust that it will all be as it should.
Congrats! I’d say that children are a blessing, but it is ch learning to as t upu understand that very well already.
Omg. “It’s clear that you understand that already.” not as clearly as my cell phone understands apparently.
Thought you had my wife’s cell phone using voice to text, but her missives usually come out with real words, just in nonsensical arrangement.
Haha. I knew what you meant. I speak fluent “my cell phone completely jacked up my perfectly clear English.” (And thank you.)
Omg. “It’s clear that you understand that already”
Apparently not as clearly as my cell phone seems to understand. Hasty typing and not enough proof reading.
Congratulations. I’m sure with the previous kids you’re much more ready to raise the boy proud. The girls are adorable.
Thank you! <3
Will he arrive by FedEx, or Amazon Drone? (By the way, congratulations. And if you feel compelled to name him after me, you have my permission to do so.)
They never arrive that easily, especially for the mother 🙂 For some reason, my wife was quite cranky during labor.
If only… and thanks! Now to start working on a name. Names are hard.
From my teenage days: live long and prosper.
From my Saturdays:
And God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
And God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the sky and over all the beasts that tread upon the earth.”
Then mother and father clothed the boys in blue, and the girls in pink, to create a favorable juxtaposition of the male and female sex, the masculine and feminine gender, respectively.
I was the youngest. Two older sisters can be a pain. Of course, there were times I was a pain, especially as they got older. Then I got older, and it was glorious to have a sister who knew every pretty girl in the high school. It’s a whole lot easier to start a personal conversation with a girl when she’s been to your house. Made my teen-aged nerd life a lot less worse. I went to three proms.
Cool. Very interesting tidbit.
Perks of being the youngest 😉
Congratulations! When can we expect the lad’s first post?
Give him a few months to get used to life outside the womb and then we’ll put him to work 😉
Congratulations! Love your pics!!
Thank you 🙂
The trick for the 3rd through nth child is to give up on the ‘man on man’ defense and for you and the hubs to drop into zone coverage…
I have three boys and a girl. I thought I knew all the rough spots from the three boys, my princess challenges me LOL.
Congrats and continue to enjoy a great life. My little miss sunshine is 9 going on 20 it seems lol.
