My wife and I have five children. We didn’t start out wanting a big family; it just sort of happened. With the birth of each child we swore that was the last one and then sometime later we would realize that we were wrong and that we were meant to have another child in our house.
When they were all young, the house was chaotic. No matter how hard we tried to instill order it never seemed to work. After our third child was born I realized that it was hopeless to even try since the children now outnumbered the parents. Oh sure the kids will at times try to make us feel like we are in control but deep down we all know that really isn’t the case.
