Just a quick, fun post today! 🙂 Enjoy!
You might have a large family if…
Your toothbrushes are color-coded.
You buy a “family size” bag of cereal and it only lasts you one day.
You have enough clothing in your closets to clothe a small nation.
You have to check out two rooms at hotels in order to stay under their per-room capacity limits.
You can’t spend less than $30 when going out to eat, even at McDonalds.
You only go out to eat at certain restaurants on nights when kids eat free.
You use three cans of “family size” condensed soup for one meal.
You realize that your family is too big for most things “family size”.
You have more kids than almost anyone you personally know.
Your kids always have someone to play with.
You debate buying a dairy cow because of how much milk you go through in one month.
You traded in your mini-van for a 15 passenger van, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
You don’t remember the last time you haven’t had a child in diapers.
You buy memberships at museums and zoos instead of a ticket per person because it is cheaper that way.
Your older kids “fight” over who gets to hold the baby next.
You pack more things for an overnight trip than most families pack for a week-long vacation.
You have multiple sets of bunk-beds.
You have a pile of shoes in all colors and sizes by your front door.
You can’t get behind on laundry or you will never catch back up.
You group your kids into two groups: the big kids and the little kids.
Your kids are used to stares, questions and comments by strangers when out in public.
You never have enough lines when filling out forms requiring you to list dependents.
You take advantage of group discount days.
You have been compared to the Duggar family.
You and/or your spouse have/has a difficult time remembering the birthdates of your children. (It’s actually kind of entertaining watching my husband try. 😉 )
Your toyroom looks like a hodge-podge toy store for boys and girls of all ages.
You have to start getting ready to leave an hour before you need to be somewhere 10 miles away.
You can’t imagine life any other way. ❤
