In September, Jace and I house sat/babysat for a family in our ward. They have S.E.V.E.N. children. Yes, 7. We were there for FIVE days. Including ours, we had nine kids, ranging from 12years-9months. This same week, Jace quit his job and left for training for a new job. That left me alone and STRESSED with all nine. My mom, who lives a couple miles away was also out of town. Luckily, MaKayla, a girl from church helped me a TON. I left the Nickels house with the UP MOST respect for Heather (their mom), and a suppressed desire to have any more kids, EVER.
Some days I wave.
