Wes and AJ had follow-up appointments this morning. All went well, but AJ was prescribed glasses.
Yes, this means that 9 of our 10 family members wear glasses.
We went to our local eye dr to order the glasses (Eye Care Associates--they are awesome).
While there, an elderly gentleman and his wife were leaving. She asked if all of the kids were mine. He said "good for you, populate the world". I didn't bother telling him that I did not have anything to do with the "populating" part of those particular kids who were with me.
Another lady asked me if I took care of all these kids. I said yes ma'am, they are all mine. She then asked if I had any help--NO!!!! (except the Lord). This one always cracks me up. My grandmother had 13 siblings, a brother in law has 10, what is the big deal?? I ONLY have 6 with me, even though I have 8. I know several families with more kids. And a couple of generations ago, most people had this many kids.
So it cracks me up that folks think a woman can not handle more than a few. And for the ones that say "I only have 2 etc., and I have a hard time"......get a grip, and get your priorities straight!
Oh sorry, I'm griping, and I was supposed to be brightening your day;)
