I’m sitting here with my daughter getting my oil change on my trailblazer, listening to 2 men talk about family.
One man is a older gentleman looking to be in his 60s/70s. The other man is a strudy man in his 50s. The conversation between these to is wonderful. Talking about their big families and the different between back in the day & now. Families had 12 kids, they were rarely inside unless doing chores, bread was 5cents a loaf, and you got paid $1-$2 a day.(This is what I heard from the older man)
That got me thinking. Why is it so crazy to have 4 kids or more? When back then it was normal to have big families of the 10-12 kids!
These men were talking about their big families with 9-11 siblings each, 30 some nieces and nephews, & 35 grandchildren! I would love a family like that. Until my mom remarried when I was 13, it was just my younger brother & I. Then we got my oldest step sister, older step brother, & a younger step brother. And I thought we were a BIG family. I was totally wrong!
When I was younger before I even got married I wanted 5 kids, when I had my first baby I changed my mind to maybe 3. Well I’m at 3 & my husband keeps trying to talking me to have another one….The thing is I’m really thinking about it. I love my munchkins & yes it will be crazy but it would be fun to love & bring another human being into the world.
You might think I’m crazy! But why? Many years ago it was normal for families of 10-12 kids. Why would me having 4 be crazy? 🙂 Maybe in a another year or so. But until that time I will keep smiling & telling my husband he’s crazy & maybe. 🙂
Until Next Time…Smile & Tell the one you love that they are crazy. 🙂
