Big Families

Divide and Conquer

I spent the morning at the pumpkin patch with four of my five kiddos. There were many families there spending the sunny autumn day together. Most families looked pretty nuclear - a mom and dad with a kid or two. Often when I rock up to places alone with a handful of kids I get the 'wow, you're brave' look from by-standers. I don't think people realize that it is all relative and comes down to what you are used to - stress levels for me to take four of five out would be no different to what they were a couple years ago when I'd take out two or three.
