Tonight we babysat our friend's four kids. There were a total of 7 kids at our house and I thought Shane was going to go into a stress-induced coma. Or maybe that was me. We were both reassured that it was the smart thing to do to stop at 3 kids...I have no idea how families with 7 kids do it. My eye started twitching 20 minutes in. For real.
It probably didn't help that the kids were all so close in age. We had a recently-turned-seven-year-old girl (who just knew she was the boss), a recently-turned-five-year-old boy (he and Kaden are in the same Primary class), our four and a half year old boy, our three year old daughter, a two and a half year old girl, an almost two year old boy (they're fostering him - in case you're keeping track of the months here), and our year and a half year old daughter. WHEW!!
So, 6 kids 5 and under, plus a bossy, but cute 7 year old.
It was so much fun!
(I'm only being slightly sarcastic.)
I'm definitely going to get my tubes tied again - just to be safe.
