Don't Sweat the Small Stuff


The number one question people ask me is, “How do you do it?” That question is closely followed by, “Are you crazy?” and oftentimes, “Is that your son holding a squirrel by its tail?” People want to know what it’s like to raise six kids, especially now that I’m a single mom. Well, I’ll tell you how I do it. Rum. Lots and lots of rum. Kidding, just kidding. Mostly kidding. Actually, my number one, most important ingredient for raising kids is humor. You need to realize that kids are goofy and you must have a sense of humor about said goofiness.

When they outgrow the goofy stage does that make them Grumpy or Dopey? (Better than Sleazy or Gropey.) Did I just say that? Only one out of seven dwarves is Happy. I used to be Snow White but I drifted.

As a mother of six "goofy" children myself sometimes through all of the chaos I have to remember to laugh at most of it because kids don't know what we know and sometimes the things that they do is just downright funny. The tic-tac in the nose is priceless,my daughter once stuffed a bead up hers and I don't know how many molded pieces of what use to be food I've found underneath the kids beds. I love your blog, it is full of laughs and hope for mothers with a large family because when people ask me how do I do it I say with a smile on my face.

I don't understand how people without a sense of humor survive - or even want to survive...

When you have a lot of kids, you either learn to laugh at the strange things the kids do or you would spend a lot of time crying or being angry.
