How interesting! My sister had 6 kids, 3 boys first and then 3 girls all in a little under 8 years!! We both at some point had had three to four teenagers in our houses at once! Trust me, we did a LOT of praying and took little weekend trips alone with our husbands whenever we could to retain our sanity. speechless A strong, involved and understanding husband really helps, and we were both blessed that way. Let me tell you, Jeanie, the payoff comes when you have grandchildren, there is nothing like it! Even when THEY are teenagers they still think you're worth knowing, unlike the embarassing parents!
Our oldest granddaughter, 23, blessed us with our first GREAT just last year....fun, fun, FUN!! You have lots to look foward to, trust me!
Good Luck, Mary
