People are always shocked when they hear that I have eleven kids. Frankly, I’m still a bit shocked myself.

I always knew I wanted a big family (although I never expected it to be quite this big). I married young, after receiving an undergraduate degree in education and a graduate degree in social work, and had four beautiful children. Unfortunately that marriage was not meant to be, and I got divorced. There were a few very difficult years; I spent a number of years working two to three jobs to provide for my four young munchkins, and there were many tears along the way. But through it all, my community — my children, family, and friends — were a constant source of support for me.

Then I met the man who was to become my husband. He was wonderful. He was, and still is, the love of my life.

And he had seven beautiful munchkins of his own.

It is, as we joke, the Brady Bunch on steroids — twice as many kids, with heaps of laundry, fighting, laughter, mud, and 20-lb bags of rice (which I can barely even lift). Parent-teacher conference season is exhausting, and I’m pretty sure the ER nurses know me personally by now.

Parenthood is the greatest part of my life — it brings me more joy, laughter, love, and support than I ever thought possible. Even with all of the chaos, there is no one I would rather spend time with than my children.

That said, I still try to make time for myself in between carpools. I go to work. I try to meet up with friends for coffee. My hobbies, and my favorite stress-relievers are dancing, baking chocolate chip cookies, and DIY decorating. I also love a good book and really good television shows (is anyone watching The Americans? Because you should all be watching The Americans), and my favorite season is barbecue season.

With all of this (welcome) havoc in my life, my time is pretty limited, so I am always looking for the most effective products on the market. I want to share what makes a difference in my busy life, in hopes that it will make a difference in yours. That’s why I started the Mom of 11 Kids.
