The kids, lol!

It hard to put into words what I love about it. It's the love, unity, choas, humor.... It's every thing that any family has I think just x's 6 for me.

The kids hands down, I love that they will always have each other even when I'm gone.

It's true, it IS hard to put into words, it feels like you need at least 3 paragraphs. I think what I love the most is the relationships my kids will have for life and the built in friendships (now of course they don't always feel that way lol), and I love that there's enough of us that it's fun to do stuff just us.

Well growing up as an only child I was pretty lonely. So, I love not ever being lonely! The love unending in our household. Sure it's chaotic and not always peaceful but I wouldn't have it another way.

I think my favorite thing is freaking other people out. And being an example to others who would like more but didn't know you could with a small house and no money.

I shouldn't comment to this one. We've had a rough week of disobedient kids and whiney kids.

Regardless, I love MY kids. I love that I have these 6 pieces of my husband, that are MINE. (ok and his, too) but there's these 6 pieces, tangible, real pieces of our love...and sure they poop, pee, spit up, make messes, etc...but they're ours. Even if we'd had to get these 6 pieces of love through adoption, even if they weren't born of our bodies, they'd still be ours. Pieces of tangible love.

Ha. We are also have a bad week. Eeeek.

I love that there is always someone to cuddle with. At lease right now while they are young. I hope they always show me love though.

I also love knowing that they will always have each other. As much as they argue and fight, they also love each other so much. Whenever one is gone at the grandparent's house, the others will sit and mope and miss them. It's adorable.
