Thoughts on Big Families

The best things...
-Instant playmates
-Parenting practice
-Cute photo models
-Kids to do all the odd jobs

The not so good things...
-Endless laundry
-Constant noise
-Mysterious messes
-Petty squabbles
-Not enough hot water to go around
-Children who end up in your bed at 2:00 AM

I have a big family though I don't think as big as yours. I am one of seven, but I still understand everything you say. About the laundry, well we all do our own, so it is not big deal.

Most of the kiddo's in these parts are too little to do their own laundry (unfortunately)
Yes i'm sure i will miss them someday Stephanie... It was funny, cuz i hardly realized he was there for a while. Then i was like "Um, why are you in my bed Asher?" haha
