I have five kids!!!

Okay, duh.

I have had five kids for almost four months now, but there are times when I just look at the baby and think, "Ohmygosh! I am the mother to FIVE children! FIVE children look to me for their basest needs! FIVE children depend on me for guidance and support! FIVE children make a lot of noise!"

Sometimes when I am doing my Routine Scan and Count of the children, I find about 3 or 4, a nice size number, and I think I am done. Then a millisecond later I realize, no, 3 or 4 isn't good enough. You have to locate FIVE children, you moron! There are days when I truly have trouble believing I have so many kids.

How on earth do the Duggars do a Routine Scan and Count?

You are so funny. I love reading your blog. When are you writing a book? Are you still glued to the recliner? You can just write while you host the parasite.

Anne - how encouraging! I am just now reading (as in right this moment) about how to get published in a magazine. A book sounds a little daunting (okay - way over my abilities!), but I thought I might try something in a magazine. Thanks for reading! Btw, I am in the recliner much less now. She is on a better schedule!
