If I know you, and you're reading this blog, you have two choices:

1) Feel free to pretend you haven't, should the contents be offensive, sensitive in nature, or just TMI (Too Much Information).
2) Comment freely or talk to me face to face, and be prepared for further honesty and opinions.

Okay? Okay.

Mommy Blogs

I have just discovered the "mommy blogs" never knew such a thing existed- And decided I wanted to give it a try. What a great way to vent, to keep track of the happenings of our lives, of my own rollercoasters. Am trying to figure out how to create a new blog skin design. i guess I'll have to google this...

I am inspired and overwhelmed at the same time- what do I write, what's funny enough, silly enough, serious enough? Do I choose one event, the whole day? The possibilities laid out in front of me are daunting. I believe I will aspire to write what ever moves me- this is the purpose afterall, and try not to get caught up in the nuances, the details of it all.

Let's start with the title- Four boys and four girls plus two parents is ten, get it?

The reason for unorthodox? We are a two mom family, raising eight kids, three biological, three adopted, and two foster. Of the kids, four are Caucasian, three Mexican, and one Laotian. Parents, both caucasian. A large family by anyones standards- Eight kids, all under the age of ten. And just to add to the confusion that is our family, we have three four year olds, two six year olds and two almost nine month olds, but only one set of twins in the bunch! Ready... The ten year old is a single birth, biological. The six year olds, 5 days apart, biological- I gave birth to one, my partner the other- yes, we had the same due date!~ One four year old is 7 months older than the other two. The other two are our only twins! The nine month olds are nine hours apart- two different moms, two different nationalities. Whew... that was difficult to write down, hopefully not to difficult to comprehend.
HERE THEY ARE... well, above

Oh my gosh, I LOVE it! I can SO relate!

I too have 8 (all adopted). A daughter (who is 19) and seven sons (11 and 10 who are ten months apart, 8 and 8 who are six months apart, and 6, 6 and 6 who are all within six months).

I'm not even sure how I found you, but I'll be back. I need to read and catch up. You're now marked as one of my favorites.
