I am thrilled to be guest posting over at Unremarkable Files today to help out my blogger friend Jenny who recently had her 6th baby. In honor of growing her family, I decided to write about how much being a mom changes after you get into 'big family' territory and the monotony that follows.
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!
I am the mother of seven children ranging from teens to a toddler, living out in the middle of nowhere, USA. I aim to hone the craft of giving advice without pretending to have this whole mom thing figured out. I am Christian, but not the really nice kind that is good at it. I am also conservative, but I promise not to be in your face with political agendas very often. I like to infuse humor into my writing, so don't freak out if you are offended or appalled by what you read here. There is a very fine line between serious advice and sarcastic hyperbole.
