Large Families

my friend Mimi over at Minxy Mimi unplugged recently did a post about the Duggars, and their 18th child.....

and it got me going on the defensive......LOL who me? on the defensive!?!?! unheard of right!! Well, because I have 5 kids, I have often been told that I am over populating the earth, and contributing to its downfall....and that my kids could not possibly feel loved by me and my dh because there are so many of them....

I have to literally Laugh My Ass Off because, nothing could be further from the truth!! sure we have a large family of 7, and at time it can get hard...but you know what we make it thru all the rough times and we are stronger for it!! In this economy right now, I am sure there are a lot of you out there that are struggling financially with just one or two kids to worry what is the difference? there really is not a difference worry about all of them just the same! you worry about ALL of your children all of the time, just like those of you with 2 worry about your two, well I just have 3 more to worry about....its not a burden, or a headache

I happened to get pregnant 5 times...and YES I have heard of birth control.....thank you...have you ever heard of 99% effective?!? well that percentage that is there that it is not ALWAYS effective....well *I* am that percentage that can and DOES get pg on the pill!!! 2 of the 5 were not planned, and we were not planning on being pg, but it happened, and there was NOTHING we could do to change it ( I don't do abortions) so....we have 5 wonderful, well rounded children, that if you did ask them, life in our family is not so bad!!! we do the family game nights, movie nights, we play video games as a family....hell I know many families out there that have just 2 kids and the don't do half of the stuff we do as a family!! in fact my kids tell me that their friends are jealous when we talk about game nights and movie nights at school!! LOL

So if there is the perception out there that with having a large family there is no way to have some one on one time with the kids...well...yes there is and my family is living proof of that!

Slacker Blogger

yes that is what I am......A Slacker Blogger....LOL Honestly...Life just has a way of getting in the way of things sometimes....and I just have not been all that "together" as of late, and my blogging has taken a serious back seat to everything!!!

I guess maybe after the Holiday's I will get back into it again....I just don't seem to have the time to do it right now....I still have decorating, wrapping, and all that Jazzy stuff to get done....ugh...

someone give me a call when the "holiday's" are over!!!
