Is Eight Enough?


Published in the Casper Journal September 29, 2010

I have eight children.  When we all go to the grocery store, perfect strangers will often stop and ask, “Are those all your children?” (Why do they think I would bring extras along?)
“Wow!  You must be a very busy mom.” (Thanks for stating the obvious.)
And then the inevitable…
“Are you planning on having any more?”  (Is that any of their business?) 
Soon the jokes start.
“You know what they say… ‘Eight is enough.’”
