This is Why I'm going to have 50 gazillion kids 3/30

We DID IT!  We survived and reached the turning point at which our older kids are able to be of substantial help in caring for the younger ones!  Papa Bear can wear Thumbelina in a Mei Tai which leaves me free to wrangle Baby Bear AND I could even push a grocery cart or climb a mountain or bake a cake or get work done for my clients or even engage in the ultimate risky behavior:  leaving my husband's socks in the same load of laundry as mine.  Now that we've reached the turning point, what exactly is our reason to NOT have 50 gazillion kids!?  I sure can't come up with one...

This is Why I'm Going To Have 50 Gazillion Kids 3/16/2011

Teachable moments, like...

Papa Bear made up a game where some of us were royalty and others of us were servants. Papa started off as a benevolent ruler, but quickly started bossing people around, saying "I LIKE BEING IN CHARGE!!!"

I told Papa that he needed to be careful or he would become a tyrant and the people might rebel.  He scoffed and replied that that would never happen because he's in charge.

Me:  Happened to Julius Caesar... (and proceeded to explain what happened to he that would be the end of the Roman Republic.)

Absolute power corrupts absolutely, y'all...
