6 kids and lots of coffee

I’m a mom of 6. Yep, 6. It’s not really as crazy as it sounds.

I might get less sleep than the average 30 something. I change more diapers, chase more toddlers and help with more homework. I definitely drink a lot of coffee – 6 cups may not be an exaggeration some days. But life is very beautiful. And more simple and peaceful than you’d probably guess.

And I try my darnedest to remember that the days are long, but the years are short. I’ve felt the hours drag until bedtime with a grouchy toddler and I’ve seen a decade flash before my eyes as my daughter grew into a teenager.

Let’s carefully wade and boldly swim through this together. Let’s lift each other up and let’s be community and love for each other. Kids need happy moms. And moms need other happy moms in front of them, behind them, and alongside them.

Grab yourself a cup of coffee and join me.
