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.’
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!
