Little Creatures

Sure they looked cute sitting all together on the porch, but this is far closer to reality. How am I going to manage another little short person?


Oh my gosh his face is priceless!

On the porch was nice. But this? This is good times.

How will you manage? Barely - same as the rest of us. You'll cry, you'll pray, you'll try, you'll laugh with actual hysteria.

And when they grow up to be decent, kind, honorable human beings (as your other children appear to be), you get to sit back and congratulate yourself for not killing them before they made it all the way.

And then you pay them back for sticking your car keys into an outlet (I actually did this as a kid & shorted out a toaster) by interfering with their child raising.

I only have two kids and often wonder how it will be to have three, but you are four going on five. Right?
Taking trips in the car must be wild. I admire you. You can do it.
Baby slings are always great and one less short person to watch. They can just hang out on you while the others are walking or in a stroller. Cute picture by the way.

Melissa, I couldn't live without my sling(s). They definitely are helpful for keeping my hands on other little ones. Still, it is going to be crazy for a while around here.

What's it been until now? :)

Listen wise guy, why I oughta...


Okay, it is always crazy, but somehow one adapts to crazy and comes to accept it as the new normal.

Isn't that what the older siblings are for? Can oldest boy be talked/bribed into keeping a handle on his younger brother when you are out? Oldest seems to be quite responsible. The girls can stick together under your supervision, with the newest in the sling.

"Okay, it is always crazy, but somehow one adapts to crazy and comes to accept it as the new normal." Heh. How true.
