One is the Loneliest Number
While typing this I have the song “One is the Loneliest Number” playing through my head. This weekend all of our kids except for Adrienne were gone. As a blended family this happens roughly twice a year. This last weekend was one of those times.
I didn’t name this house Casa La Crazy for nothing. With 9 people,7 of them kiddos,there is always something in some part of the house going on.
Except this last weekend.
Within hours of the 6 kiddos being gone I was facebooking how weird it felt only having one child at home.
By that night I had facebooked that I was definitely not made to have only one or two kids.
We constantly get comments the normal comments most large families get:
Are they all yours?
Don’t you know what causes that?
How do you handle all those kids?
I could never handle that many kids I just don’t have the patience.
I knew after I had my second child that I definitely wanted more children. Poor Brandon kind of got thrown into this big family thing,but I am constantly amazed at how much it suits him.
By Sunday even poor Squishy was in a tizzy over not having any of her siblings here at the home front. she just wanted to be held and cuddled…but apparently not only by me and daddy.
Once my kiddos came home Sunday night Squishy’s face lit up and she spent the rest of the night giggling and playing.
Yesterday the girls came home.
All 9 of us are back under one roof again.
We went out to dinner last night with Brandon’s family. As I looked back over at the kids table I felt a wholeness in my heart again.
Yes for me…One is the Loneliest number and I’m so glad to have ALL my kiddos back at home!
