Though truth be told, I was living at my in-laws at the time so that could have been a part of it.
But I've quickly learned that parenting four kids is so much different than parenting one, two, yes, even three, so much so that I have been desperately seeking the support of other moms who are in the same boat.
A very large, rocky, sometimes extremely hard to paddle, boat.
But since I couldn't really find anything, I decided that I would start something of my own. You know, in my free time.
So yesterday, along with Meagan Francis (one of my favorite people and the amazing woman behind The Happiest Mom), I launched 4 Kids or More, a blog that focuses specifically on parenting larger families. Especially modern larger families.
AKA NOT THE DUGGARS.
Thankfully, I'm not alone in this endeavor, because along with Meagan, I've enlisted the help of a few amazing women, like Molly from Mommy Coddle, Lylah from Write Edit Repeat, and Stephanie from Adventures in Babywearing.
We hope that 4 Kids or More will be a community for all moms (and dads) of many kids who are looking for support, ideas, and tips, as well as a place to share their own experiences and expertise.
I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who can use a little help.
If you have a spare moment, I hope you'll stop by and say "hello." I think you'll find it to be a lovely place, with lots of wisdom.
And if you don't have four kids, it might just be the inspiration, or, well, birth control you were looking for.
