Apparently, only the Orthodoxed and Amish people have five kids these days, but I was an only child for twenty-eight years, so I made up for it by having five. Life is pretty exciting at times and pretty scary at other times. I was married before and had four children with my first husband, and one with my current husband, Philip. The whole back and forth and joint custody thing seems like a lifetime ago, and even that had its ups and downs.
Now my kiddos are adults for the most part, with the exception of my fifteen year-old. It’s so crazy to have kids who have already graduated from college and are out on their own building lives. I feel like they were babies five minutes ago. All I can say is enjoy the time when they’re little because it flies by!
