I'd like to remind you that your family wouldn't be where it is without you using your intelligence, your strength, and your capabilities to build them up.
I strongly believe that knowing your own body is the best way to control your fertility.
My sisters and I are extremely blessed by my mother's willingness to spend time molding our kids.
We read at least one chapter each afternoon together during summer vacation. Then, we rate the book & movie combo.
When my husband went on a business trip to Florida for a few months, he had to figure out how to help out long-distance.

Daily life is far more rewarding when we have more positives than negatives in the "bank".
Children seem to think their mom is all-powerful and all-knowing.
When you are a parent out-numbered by your kids, it is necessary to enlist help from the troops, especially where chores are involved.
My biggest challenge and regret concerning having seven children is that I don't have as much individual time with them as I'd like.
"I'm sorry I called you a dumb dummy head. I was frustrated at the way you were acting, but I shouldn't have called you names."

As you might imagine, a household of eight or nine creates a lot of laundry.
Our kids are numbered, but not because we've forgotten what we named them...

...actually, problem of the past half decade...
If you can't open it, you can't eat it... and other rules.
