I consider our family to be a “Little Big Family.” Most of you out there would probably just think of us as being of a large family size. But because we know families with 7..8…9 or more children, I just don’t think of having as 6 children as being that big of a family.
A while back a friend of mine and I started discussing what size family we were really were. She has 4 children and at the time so did I. We decided that we were “big little” families. For most of America, having 4 children is having a large family. But because our group of friends includes families so much bigger than ours we just could not label ourselves as “large.” So we became “big little.” LOL
When I was pregnant with my 5th, she said that I had crossed over. I could no longer be “big little” but was now officially in the large family size, but not really large. So we came up with “little big.” 🙂
Every so often I look at my children around the table and think…wow…I have SIX children! SIX. I guess that is a lot. But most of the time, I just see six children, who came one at a time, to add just the right element to our family. Our “little big” family. 🙂
