My one problem with being the mother of a large family is that everything seems to happen at the same time.
Take for example the other night this all happened within 3 minutes I am not even joking.
Number 1 – on couch reading
Number 2 – baking cupcakes timer is beeping she needs help getting it out of the oven
Number 3 – Falls and hurts her knee and is now howling at the top of her lungs. (the wound did not justify the response)
Number 4 – eyes are so swollen she can barely see (thank you hay fever) and walks into the corner bangs her mouth, it is bleeding
Number 5 – decides she is a monkey and climbs my desk to try to get something slips a bit and get a sliver in her foot. (my desk is made of wood….old wood)
Number 6 – has had an accident and can’t find a change of clothes so starts yelling “mommy…mommy….MOMMMY!” (OK he can shriek like the best of them when put to the test)
So there in is my life……..
