I am the oldest of 7 children.
I gave birth to 2 children.
Scott has 4 children.
All of these children have spouses or significant others.
I have about 30 nieces and nephews, many of them have spouses, and children.
I have 20 grandchildren.
I have 2 parents.
This breeds chaos.
Joyful chaos (mostly).
But a wild ride for sure.
On Friday my sister's golden child (daughter) gets married.
On Thursday my siblings from out of state arrive for wedding festivities.
And 4th of July festivities.
And because that's not enough partying, family reunion festivities.
Which means -
Revolving doors between my house and my next-door neighbors (parents).
Work schedules that beg for flexibility.
Meal plans begging for flexibility.
Change of plan flexibility.
And - family!!!
