I stumbled across this video on facebook and couldn't help but think of the post I wrote a couple months back titled, "and they all stopped and stared." although now after watching this, I'm thinking a more appropriate title for my post would have been, "and they all stopped, stared and ASKED QUESTIONS."
for the record, I'm pretty positive I've been asked every single one of these questions at some time or another. plus a few more that I can't think of right this second. based on my experience of taking wee ones out in public, it seems that most people tend to view two kids as acceptable (no one bats an eye), three is pushing it (might spark a "boy you sure are busy" comment), and anything after four... uh, you may as well be giggling into balled up fists. (read: nutty, crazy, insane)
regardless to what people may think or say or ask, my heart is happy. busy and overwhelmed at times. frustrated and a bit sad every now and then. but, most of the time...it beats contentment. and for that, I am grateful.
my all-time favorite takes place around minute 2:30... my response to this, "c'mon people, like really?" (too much information!)
also, a sneak peek at our sunday afternoon family activity:
it was HOT!
