Him: How did the appraisal go?

Me: Good I think. Who can tell?

Him: Did he seemed impressed with all the work we have done already?

Me: Yes. But he asked me what I thought the house should come in at.

Him: And?

Me: And he laughed when I told him.

Him: Uh-oh.

Me: I went high, but still.

Him: What did he say?

Me: The neighbors who just sold their house blah blah blah, nicer than ours, blah blah blah we still have lots of work to do.

Him: Well that’s true.

Me: He did say that the kids were the best kids he has run into in a really long time. Maybe that will count for something.

Him: Maybe.

Me: You know how some people sell houses furnished? Well, we can sell ours with children.

Him: Instant family.

Me: Just add huge mortgage.

Him: Exactly.

    Oh, I’m sorry. That sounds so stressful.

  2. Christina says:

    My husband is always trying to give away our kids, and I keep telling him they ought to be worth something to us! Now yours come with a house, that’s a deal :)

  3. Jennifer says:

    You should at least keep one of them. You know. As a memento.

  4. Nicki says:

    Keep the toddler. They are great laughs to have around.

  5. Denise says:

    yeah you should at least keep one of each.. ya know..

  6. Cathy says:

    There are those that would take you up on that. Just think, they’d save all those childbirth pains, etc. Worth a huge mortgage.

  7. Mir says:

    Wait, we’re allowed to sell the kids with the house? I need to rethink my options.

    ;)

  8. jo(e) says:

    I tried to give my cats away the last time I sold a house but no one wanted them. I didn’t think to add my kids into the deal ….

  9. Jenna says:

    A small two bed room, 1 1/2 bath, fully furnished, large kitchen, huge backyard, two well behaved children.

    Sounds like a good deal, lol

  10. Kristie says:

    I’m worried if they saw how my kids behave they would take money away.

  11. halloweenlover says:

    Your kids are the best behaved kids I’ve ever met, that is for sure. That should up your appraisal for sure.

    Did you show them the attic office? I love that! And did you show them your superior tiling jobs?

  12. InterstellarLass says:

    We keep wondering how much we could get for ours too. If you get a line on value, let me know.

  13. Jordana says:

    I hope you get a wonderful appraisal, and if you have to throw in a couple kids to seal the deal? Not such a bad bargain…

    I do think they start losing value when they get mouthy though.

  14. Erika says:

    awww you’d miss em.. but I guess you could put in the contract that you can visit once or twice a year
