A Family of Nine 

A Family of Nine 

We’re spending part of the long weekend at our cabin in Wisconsin, and visited one of our favorites places in Webster for dinner this evening. There was a family of nine seated near us, and we made some friendly conversation with Dad. 

All of his kids were older–the youngest seemed to be probably 15, but we asked him if he enjoyed having a larger family. He said it was wonderful, and that once you have two,

 “the rest are easy. Once you get to four, what’s a few more?!” 

I had to laugh at his response, but it does make me think I would love to have a huge family. Maybe not 7, but maybe 4?! 

Maybe my head is just in the baby clouds, but sometimes I wonder what it would be like, and also what the future holds for us baby-wise. 

Only time will tell I guess! Until then I’m enjoying every moment with Little Bear as an only child!

    Lovely post! I think about this a lot now too. My poor boyfriend is no doubt terrified when I mention the idea of four.

    But like you say it’s lovely enjoying our little ones as only children right now 🙂 xx

      HAHA yep that’s my hubby too, he’s like woa now… LOL! But yes, I do think about it a lot, but I also want to make sure I slow time down and enjoy her while it’s just her. Time is going fast enough, right?! 🙂

    I agree with “once you have four, What’s a few more?’ other than the increases in laundry and grocery bills! I have a family of 9. My 7 are from 2-17. I would love for you to check out my blogger’s group since you are pretty new. Just search No amazing super moms allowed on FB.
