What’s the best mistake you’ve ever made?

Have sex WITHOUT condom!

During my trip I received the most unexpected video call from my wife…

The screen showed her face.She cried. Speechless.

“Tell me what’s going on?” I asked.

She placed a small white stick on her hand and showed it on camera.

“What is this?” I asked, confused.

“It’s a positive pregnancy test,” she said.

“Oh cool!Which of your sisters is pregnant? “I asked.

“I’m pregnant!” she said, crying as she showed the pregnancy test on screen.

“No,” I said, “that’s not possible!”

“Yes, darling … I’m pregnant with our fourth child,” she exclaimed.

In one moment I lost my smile.I felt a cold shiver going through my skin. The fear grippedme.My day immediately became a nightmare!

A million questions pressed through my head: “But… how could this happen?when? Oh shoot! Four kids That’s crazy! My eldest son is 12, my youngest is 6! It is impossible to start all over again! “

Meanwhile, we both cried over the video conference.Speechless. Fear of the unimaginable challenges.

I couldn’t believe what was going on.This was completely unexpected. We honestly never saw that coming!

A few weeks passed.Her belly began to grow…

A storm of questions pierced my head: “How can we ever deal with four children?How do I deal with financial stress? We have to buy all the baby stuff again! How can I pay the hospital bill?

We had already donated all the baby items a few years ago.

“Why is this happening?We were done with babies! Why God? Why are you doing this?”

I complained every day…

‘That’s not fair!Why are you doing this to us? What did I do wrong? I do not deserve this punishment!I can’t handle that much pressure! Can’t you give us a break? I have enough problems and problems in my life! I don’t like it! “

Nine agonizing months passed.Always complain, full of fear and unanswered questions!

At last… the day came!

“Press, press!” shouted the doctor.

“One more time!”

And then he was right there…


A perfect, beautiful, healthy baby.He cried. My wife held him and he calmed down. I was totally shocked. I wanted to cry, but I couldn’t.

Emotions dominated me.I didn’t know what to do. I was paralyzed and terrified as I tried to overcome the uncertainty of how I would deal with this new challenge in my life.

Well, that’s how the BEST days of my life began!Irony, which makes us all smile at home every day is my little “nightmare”.For the last 4 years, every day, he’s been the No.1 of our smile at home.He is always happy and this happiness just makes our days special.

I really don’t have any writing skills to describe how much joy this little guy has brought to our lives.

His siblings enjoy him, and me and my wife, well, we are overwhelmed with joy.

Our life at home went from the normal routines of everyday life to unexpected sparks and happiness that make us laugh and fool.

Everyone in my family has been transformed by a wonderful gift that our little “surprise” has brought us.

To answer your question, what I thought was a disaster turned out to be the greatest unexpected blessing in our family life.

God had good plans.

I believe and understand now that he knows how to make us happy, but I have to trust him.

Even in the most difficult parental days, my life would be meaningless without my four “monsters” constantly pushing me out of my comfort zone.

Okay, now serious… NO more children 🙂
