You've got your HANDS FULL....

I'll admit, when strangers pause momentarily to gawk at our crew, then comment, "You've got your hands full!" I sometimes get annoyed. I mean, come on, do I look as though I need that reminder??










But, when I take a step back, and look at things from their angle, I can see why they feel the need to validate what I'm going through...








Because the truth is, I DO have my hands full...



But, not nearly as full as my HEART.

I admit that I would probably be one of the people staring at the kids when you are out and about. First, there would the shock, surprise, and envy over your large family. Second would be the validation that YES, super mom has her hands full. I'm not the only one!

Yes, I feel like people are always looking at us like we're the traveling circus. I get the "hands full" comment once in awhile. I must look mean...because people don't comment to me too often! ha ha
But when they do I sometimes I want to say "yes, my hand are full and you wouldn't believe how much these kids get on my nerves and I never get sleep and they always want to eat and they cost so much playing soccer and dance and I have so much laundry and constant complaining and boo boo's that need fixing and they're always wanting toys and..." You get the idea...just to get them to shut up! ha ha
