Here's an irony of big family life; it really doesn't feel like as many kids as it looks. Can I get a witness here from you Big Family readers? It's only when I see us in photographs that the reality of just how many pair of underwear I am responsible for getting clean each week finally sets in...

Kisses and Celluloid,
