Not All Roses - Livin' the Good Life

Of COURSE, raising kids was not all roses! There was an abundance of fighting and bickering, and with all boys, there was way too much testosterone in the house at times. Competition galore! I worried over their health and could really have used the Internet back then when I didn't have answers to health dilemnas, like suspected allergies and other mysteries. I lost patience. I felt "touched-out". I felt overwhelmed. I felt bogged down by the sheer amount of dishes, laundry, clutter, decisions, noise... you name it, there was a lot of it. But, funny how the memory of all that stress fades, and what lingers is the joy, and the love, and the fun of having a bunch of kids.
