Like many Americans in the 80s and 90s, (maybe like you?) I grew up with one sibling. So I didn’t really know what to expect as a mom of many children (we have 9 now). Some things we can anticipate: (laundry, food, and stacks of clothes bins!), but what I wanted to talk about in this video are the things I didn’t know would come along with having so many children.
I made this video more than a year ago, when I was pregnant with baby #9, and I’m sharing in the hopes that it can help others– maybe to help younger moms know what to expect, and maybe to help women in similar phases feel not quite so out-of-it.
