This is always a funny topic to me to hop on. It always seems to shock people when I tell them that I am a mom of 5 and only 36 and my oldest is 17. I am told quite often that I don’t look old enough to have that many kids… or that they think I’m some sort of super woman, having everything organized and put together … UMMMM… Nope, not close. I tell them theres a lot of “winging it” and “going with the flow’, also make up is an amazing thing! FOR REAL!!!! lol So here are 5 things I wish people would stop saying when they find out I have 5 kids.
5 Things I Wish People Would Stop Saying When They Find Out I Have Five Kids
1.”You ever figure out what causes that?” Seriously people!! Uh.. yeah, and we pretty much became pros at it. Then I smile real big…
2. “Are they all yours… and why is there a blonde one?” Um, genetics? Also, they all look like siblings! Neither me or their father could deny they belong to us, even if we wanted to. Also, his dad had blonde hair. GEEZ
3. “You don’t look old enough to have 5, you must have gotten started early.” Well, yeah kinda. Met hubby at 17, married at 19, first baby at 20, and all delivered by the time I was 26. We had a plan and a goal, big family and no more after 25! We are a little more specific when throwing things like that out there in the universe to God to direct.
4. “You should get a tv to put in your room!” UMMM… why? A tv, really, does that even work for some people…? You’re not paying for them, why does it matter if there are five? Plus, a tv wouldn’t make a difference anyways ’cause, remember? We perfected the art of making them. *wiggles eyebrows up and down suggestively*
5. “Do you believe in birth control?” Wait what?!?!?! There is such a thing?!?!?! UGH! Yes I do, and we knew when we were done. Since you’re not involved in any of this matter, what doesn’t it matter to you?
Look, I get that a lot of people today see the typical family as something straight out of the Simpsons – 2.5 kids, and a dog – but we knew what we wanted early and we made it happen. Our kids are happy, healthy, and love having so many siblings to tussle around with. So feel free to put a television in your room and pop birth control like Skittles, ’cause we good, boo!
