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.
