YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A LARGE FAMILY WHEN:

Your eleven year old son shares a room with the one year old and takes care of the him; way up in the other side of the house...and he shows up at your bed around 1am with the baby...you look at him and say it is 1am...like he has a watch on...you take the baby and put him back to sleep with a nice little cuddling rocking...

Your three year old calls your name at 1:38am to take her to the potty...and you got to wait for someone to get out of the bathroom!!!

Your five year old comes down an hour later...approx 2:30am to tell you that the three year old had a bad dream and wants you again...you just got your pregnant self comfy from the last wake up...and you tell the five year old to let the three year old sleep with her!!! (thank God for siblings)

All in a nights work...

THY WILL BE DONE!!! +JMJ+

You left out the ultimate perk-at 7 am you tell the oldest one awake to feed the others put in a decent video, and let you grab another hour before you have to get up...

It's funny because it's true. Hope you got a better night's sleep last night?!
