The joke is that the color green is associated with sexual
green M&Ms are a fake aphrodisiac.  My parents used to joke about the green
M&Ms and I never got it when I was a kid...big shock when I got older to
learn what those Meaningful Glances were all about.  I was pretty dense.

Jacob's family is even bigger.  We have a lot of relatives to keep track
of--and something like 30 nieces and nephews.

I'd think you wouldn't forget those things!  I hated being pregnant and it's
only gotten worse each time.  But I actually did something similar with my
first two; Teleri was about a year old when I got pregnant with Aerin.
Looking back on it, I can't believe I even considered it.  Later children
have come further and further apart.
