On being a mom.of.7

People have often commented on my having 7 children and wonder how I do it. It never seemed that strange to me; my mom and dad had 7 children. Not that my husband and I ever tried to have this many, in fact my husband had only wanted 2 children in the beginning, but I have never thought very much of it. After all, look at the family with 17 children and counting... or is it 18 children, now? I imagine that there are many differences with having 7 children as opposed to having just one, three, or even four children. The dynamics between parent(s) and child(ren) are different as well as the dynamics between the siblings. It is interesting to watch the interaction of the siblings one with another. This blog is just my way of sharing and answering those oft too frequent questions of how we do it.
