When we meet for church on Sundays, our family is usually one of the smallest in number, so it sometimes takes me aback when someone responds with utter incredulity when I tell them we have 5 kids.
People must think they are being novel when they make statements like "don't you know what causes that?" or "I'm glad they're not mine." (By the way, the kids are glad they're not yours as well!) It really is a wonder to many why we would have more than the accepted American standard of 2.1 children.
So what's the deal with all the kids?
