Life with seven kids would probably seem a little surreal to some, but like all things, when you are in the middle of living the life you are living, you don't know any different.
Like putting kids to bed for example. Sometimes the best way to describe it is like playing whack-a-mole. And now that we have kids who range from teenager to barely toddler, bedtimes have totally become more political.
While it would be so easy to send them all to bed at the same time, you can't really give a thirteen year old an 8:30 bedtime. In any case we are very much appreciating our temporary stay in Richmond Hill, but we are really looking forward to moving in to our new home in Alliston, which we definitely miss.
