Column Day! This week I talk about how raising a big family requires playing a lot of different roles. For example, in the two hours since I arrived home from work tonight, I’ve already scrubbed bloodstains out of my dress shirt, played a rousing game of “Does This Flesh Wound Need Stitches?”, cleaned up a literal blue lagoon from the middle of the kitchen table (there was a melting block of dyed ice involved – don’t ask), and replaced a broken light bulb that lasted all of four minutes before Oscar broke the replacement. Honestly, I don’t even know why we own lamps.
Anyhow, if you’d like to know all about how I love spending time with each of my adorable little darlings, you can read it here.
(In case you’re curious, the answer is no… just a punctured lip, very messy but not as bad as it seemed once it stopped bleeding.)
