Since completing the post, I have realized I missed a huge reason I am different and feel the need to acknowledge it. (It was one of her FB posts that made me realize it.) The BIG kids! During the late pregnancies and early babyhoods of my last three kids, I had older ones making cereal for the toddler, rocking the baby while I made dinner or slept in awhile, ensuring the toddler sat watching cartoons instead of hanging from the ceiling fan while I napped, bathing younger kids, and the list could go on and on! It was still tiring to have a new baby, but not that soul-sucking, maybe I should just die now kind of tired.
For the rest of the list, hop on over to Unremarkable Files!
