Have you ever seen a little chihuahua that thinks it's a lab? Those little dogs don't know they aren't twice the size they really are, and they behave accordingly.
That is us. We are a 'little' family of five that thinks we are a family of at least 8 or 9. We buy peanut butter and salsa in bulk. We do head counts before we go anywhere. And our perspective of what constitutes 'lots' of kids is a little higher than average.
Earlier this week we had the privilege of meeting Suzanne from The Joyful Chaos and her wonderful family to play at a water park and playground.
Between us, we had four adults and eight kids. And we didn't think a thing about it. The kids played together so sweetly, with biggers taking care to include littlers, while the dads chatted and the moms visited about approximately 47 different topics while jiggling babies, making sandwiches, watching climbers and applying bandaids.
It was joyful. And it was chaotic. And we loved every minute of it!
