What would a week be without grocery shopping – the family does request that I keep them fed and other
silly things of that nature. Although sometimes I would much rather my experience be similar to this:
Yes Littlest can sleep anywhere. Actually all of the children are like this. Blessed?? Perhaps. I am fairly certain its in the genes – Mr. Man can literally sleep anywhere. That and they have grown up doing it. Tired?? Lay down and take a nap!!
Then one day I got the crazy idea to take all the children to visit with their cousin who was having a baby. Not the cousin, his girlfriend. Her children were also at the hospital and said “Yea, bring them up here so they can all play”. Silly me said “Ok!” Eight children + mom in labor = desperate measures. Off I go to take all of them outside so mom can get some quiet. Then my children see Starbucks. Its official. They are addicted. I know this because Littlest, at 2, is jumping up and down hollering “Tar buk! Yay!”. Hrmm… Desperate times call for desperate measures. I walk all 8 of them right in and order 7 short vanilla bean frappachinos and 1 apple juice for Girly. Crazy looks and all. Apparently it is better that “only 5” are mine, and no I did not have quads and then twins with single births first and latest. They took pity on me I believe and hooked us up. Decided after all that, I deserved a Venti instead of my usual Grande. No picture of that trip, what can I say, I was a bit distracted. Then I distracted them. Ahh, thank you Netflix and hospital Wi-fi!
