Today for Hot Topic Tuesday I wanted to introduce you to my family, and I mean all of them (there are a lot). Currently Milton, the girls and I all live in my parents house. We basically have a 3 room “apartment” upstairs with our own bathroom and we share the kitchen downstairs. The house is about 2500 square feet and 15 people live here, I know let’s hear the OMG (s).
At all my kids doctors appointments they ask all the standard questions, are there any problems? Can they do ________? (fill in the blank). The last time we were there for baby’s 9 month appointment there was a new MA checking us in and she asked, “now who lives in the household?” Here is my answer
“Well there is my husband and I, our 3 girls, grandma, grandpa, 6 aunts, 1 uncle, 1 dog, a hamster, and a rabbit.”
Her jaw almost dropped to the floor. She fumbled some response uncomfortably and I just chuckled to myself, people can never believe it. Multi-generational living is becoming more commonplace these days, especially with our current economic state, but onto the introductions.
I am the oldest of all 8 children and I am 26, I think you know me pretty well by now…
