Last Friday night our two teens were out with their cousin and her hubby so Jim and I decided (rather spontaneously) to take the rest of our children out to dinner. It was the first time I realized we have 10 children 10 and under.
We headed to O'Charley's (Woo-hoo! 2 kids eat free for every adult meal purchased) and of course were the object of many questions and stares. Honestly, I would have been wondering about us too. One lady asked what were we..daycare? Group? Nope, just a family :o)
One lady gave the obligatory you have your hands full comment ...which seems to be the thing to say whether you have one child or a hundred.
Eben's response cracked me up. He turned to me and said (as if to offer an explanation to me) "Mama, that lady is joking with you. You have nothing in your hands."
Oh that made me laugh. We had a great time and were so blessed. The kiddies did a great job and I am so thankful for each and every one of them..and for a hubby who gets me out of the kitchen from time to time.
Eben ans Sweet Pea..She's a two fork kind of a girl.
