On Large Families

I am the mother of three. Three. That means we are a family of five.

I have been amazed at how many statements and questions we get that are very similar to those in this song:

  1. That's hiLARious. Cracked us up... and our whole "daycare" of "twins" gathered round to watch it too. :)

    I just want to echo their sentiment,
    "yes, and we like it." :) Perfect lighthearted response to a perpetual situation that happens in public.

  2. I am laughing so hard! That is really great! Isn't it funny the questions people feel free to ask total strangers? Hilarious!

  3. The brazenness of strangers always stuns me.

  4. Hi Shannon. I found your blog through the tot school blogs just in case you were wondering. As far as this video-hilarious. I know I'm bound to get the same kind of responses someday. (#1 is 20 months old, #2 due any day now). And while I am catholic I have found in looking at the many blogs of all the Christian homeschooling moms associated with tot school how many large families there are. It is obvious to me now that it just isn't something in the catholic denominations stance on birth control but that all of us who are truly Christian (because there are also plenty of people who say they are catholic chrsitians but still use it) see the inherint value of children as blessings from God!

  6. Pahahahah! Go them!!

    I *only* have three as well, and we get the "you've got your hands full" and "better you than me."

    I just smile and always answer..."they are my little blessings!"

Join the conversation, glorify the Lord, proclaim his goodness. I'd love it if you did.
