I admit - I have quite a few parenting gurus. I only have two kids and since I have two arms and therefore the capability of holding onto both of them (I am freakishly strong thanks to Les Mills Pump) I don't have the same issues that my friends with 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 kids have. I don't know anyone that is my age with more than 8 kids. If there are women out there my age with more than 8 kids I applaud them and will now go take a nap in their honor.
So the above picture is of my sisters (watch for the reaction of "Why the hee haw did you use this picture?!"). There is a reason that I used this picture. First - Kacy was about 8 months pregnant with her third child. Carly had an 11 month old boy. So naturally I look to them for advice because they have older kids and while I am older than both of them, they are more experienced because they each have four kids. Like when Carly's son would only wear sweat pants and I thought it was weird for a while, but now my son only wants to wear sweat pants. I am simpatico about that now. Amazing how parenting does that.
