I just have to applaud you for those blinkies of yours. Your an AP, non-CIO mommy of 7 with one on the way! How do you do it? Being an AP mommy of one is hard enough. How you have the energy for 7, and then one in the oven is truly commendable. I would love a large family, but fear I would not have enough time to go around.

You wouldn't believe how many times I get the "how do you do it" question each day lol. And I have yet to come up with an answer! lol. I usually tell people "lots of coffee". But in reality, I honestly don't know how I do it. I never dreamed I'd have a large family. I used to always say I wanted one girl, one boy, that's it. I had my girl, then my boy - and well, then they just kept coming haha. Whenever all the kids are in the same room I can't help but just look at them in amazement and be like 'Wow - I Made all those!' I guess I've been AP all along, just never knew it had a name until a few years ago. I'm the type that doesn't like to do things just because someone tells me to - guess I'm a rebel of sorts lol - so I just started with my 1st doing things the way they felt right for me and continued that through all of my kids.
Don't get me wrong - there's days where I'm ready to just pull my hair out. Lately I have those days more often than not lol. But I couldn't imagine my life any other way.
Oh and as far as energy - there's NONE of that around here this past week lol. So if anyone has any to give away, please let me know.
