I got that! What I didn’t know at 6, then 7, then 10, and so on until they arrived after my 22nd birthday was that there is soooo much more!
My then boyfriend, now husband of 22 years and I talked about having a family. I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom, and he wanted to be the provider. (Old fashioned I know, but it was pretty awesome that we both agreed to it!) We planned to start our family two years after we got married. SURPRISE!!! We got pregnant on our wedding night! Next surprise…TWINS!!
In the summer of 2008, we were blessed to welcome our final bundle. Shortly after he was born, I had to have major surgery. At that time, I had 5 kids in school and a toddler. I fixed breakfast for all of them, sent the big kids off to the bus. I cleaned up, vacuumed, did laundry, dishes, and grocery shopping. I took Bug to the park and everywhere I went. I also went back to college and attended an online school, then transferred to a brick-and-mortar. Now I had to fit school time and homework into my schedule.
