Big Family Problems series #1

I would like to address some big family problems maybe you are having or maybe it's just me. Some will be silly and some will be serious but I thought I would just share a few. 

Do you see all those fun post with families getting together for a fun trip to the movies and wonder why your family never gets invited to these kinds of things?

I do. I know, I know, that's something silly to be thinking about but I think I figured it out. We just have too many kids. Yep I said it. We have too many kids. 

I don't think I have too many kids but I think others probably get overwhelmed when they even think about inviting us to something like a movie night or to go sledding. 

I wish it wasn't that way but I'm pretty sure I scare the heck out of my friends. 

Plus we have mostly boys so that may be something to do with it too. We are kind of a ruff family. But we are lots of fun. 

We try to make sure we get out and do things together as much as possible but I still think it would be fun to join another family every once in a while. I have tried inviting others to come with but it usually doesn't work out because we are kind of a spur of the moment kinda family. 

What I really think it is I miss is the adults that would be with us. Don't get me wrong I love hanging out with my kids. I just feel like we are missing out on something here. Maybe we are not. 

Am I the only one? Am I being Vain? I don't know but this is just one of the things that have saddened me since I had more then 2 kids. Now that we are adding a 6th here in May. Eeeeek!!! I'm sure we will be thought of as even more crazy. 

Until my next Big Family Problems post. 

God Bless,

  1. Congratulations on the news about #6!!!!!

    Our family is "too big" too. #8 is supposed to arrive in January, and our adoption homestudy is complete, and we're waiting to hear whether we pass muster to adopt a sibling set we think might be a good fit for us (and us for them).

    Actually, I don't mind being too big anymore . . . most activities are more fun on a family scale anyway--outings with friends are mostly social, and I'd rather just meet them at a park or something where our sheer numbers don't matter so much. :)


Have a Blessed day.
