do we think we’re crazy?

It takes us a minute to get there.

But generally we find out that yes, we do think we’re crazy, when I tell Wes that someone is expecting a baby and they have twins Ivy’s age. And he’s like, ‘what?! wow!’. And I’m like Wes. They’re just now expecting, we’ve already had two since then. And then we pause and say, ‘oh.’

Or. On Halloween, we were popping popcorn out on the front porch for all the neighbors and I was talking to this mom who’s little girl had just plopped herself down on the porch with Ivy and Jack. I referenced it later to Wes and he said, ‘yeah, doesn’t she have like four kids?’.

‘Nope,’ I said, ‘she has five.’


‘Wes. We have five kids.’

‘Oh. Yeah.’


Generally, we’re so focused doing our thing that we don’t notice how crazy our house is.

And then. There are the days that we do. And we crawl in bed after finally whacking all the moles and look at each other like holy cow. What the heck just happened?


Oh my gosh these are some days people!

About A Story of Us

My grandparents 57th wedding anniversary and my first wedding anniversary motivated to journal the adventures life brought our way . I hope to amuse the friends and family I have all over the country and, when I am my grandmothers age, look back at what I have written and chuckle. It's been four years since I began and the snickers I bring myself as I look back propel me to write on. Cheers to the future and happy memories of the past.

    Oh, Kelsey, what a wonder! You and Wes have your hands so beautifully FULL. These photos say soooo much! You are doing a good WORK, and your children are thriving. They are so full of life and joy and are learning skills that will give them a head start on life. It looks as if Ivy has a twin in one of the twins! 🙂 I think back to when I first “met” you (discovered your blog) and you were traveling with your parents and had nary a child. It seems to have happened so quickly: Ivy is now the big (and it looks like, helpful) sister to four siblings. You have given her (and each of your children) wonderful gifts in the form of siblings. May God continue to bless you, give you much grace, and help you enjoy these fabulous, sometimes frenetic, fun, five (so far ;)) children days. I am rootin’ for you, sweet Mama and Daddy~praying, too, as you come to mind.
