How to Have Too Many Kids, and Not Lose Yourself
I say it almost every day. I have too many kids. It usually comes out light-hearted, as I use it as an excuse for.......everything. Disheveled appearance. Skipped workouts. Being late. Lack of replying. Missed appointments. Being late again. I say it kidding.... Kind of. Honestly, we have too many kids for a lot of things. I knew this, so I'm not asking for pity. I got greedy. People often say to me, "I don't know how you do it all!" and I brush it off. I say that it's really not that bad, or that I don't actually "do it all". But I feel compelled to get more real-sometimes it is really freaking hard. I make light of it, but it isn't always funny. It's sometimes really stressful and overwhelming. This last year has been really hard. Most days I was loading/unloading children from my car over 20 times a day. Twenty. Times. But though I don't "do it all"-I try to hang on to it all, even if by a thread.
