Never understood this one. "You want to have your cake and eat it"?
Absolutely, what would be the point of having my cake and not eating it?
I once read somewhere that the correct saying is "You want to eat your cake and have it" which makes much more sense.
The stress is on the word "too". if you want to have it (keep it) you can't also eat it. If you want to eat it you won't have it anymore

Re: baby on board sticker
That baby may be grown up, but depending on the demographic there may be another.

My cousin recalls the first time she gave birth in IL. Doc delivers the baby, and on his way out, he calls over his shoulder, "L'hitraot shana haba!"

So, if it is a tiny sports car, ram it, but if it is a ten-year-old minivan, assume they saved money and didn't replace the sticker with the new baby.

Yeah, stock up and save. Buy 4 dozen roses now for the whole month. That'll work.

It works, but you're doing it wrong. If you overload her with roses now, she won't want to see any more for at least 4-6 weeks. Major savings.

"Nothing yet, but school is about to start and yomtov is coming, so I'm buying credits."

Although version, "I don't know, but I'm sure you'll tell me."

If she’ll get tired of roses and ask you to start buying something more expensive instead, it’ll end up costing you.

So they should add an additional baby on board sticker for every additional child with a "This car is making a Kiddush Hashem" sticker beneath.

Yeah, I get flowers once a year on Shavuos. DW can't stand them (though I appreciate them), so we only get it for the minhag (and my kids are in charge of caring for them).
