In our house right now, apart from Courtney and myself: one 6-year old girl, one 12-year old boy, two 10-year old boys, one 9-year old boy, one 8-year old boy, and one 3-year boy. During the weekend, when the kids need a break from playing outside in the playground, they come here. We’re like a children’s watering hole. 2l water + 1l cranberry juice = gone in 2 minutes. Whereupon they invade the playroom.
I’m grateful that our kids have friends, and feel comfortable bringing them home.
And then I’m grateful when they all leave again, to go back to the playground.
