Based on a true story about a real mom who really likes having babies
"When I was a child, my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk you'll end up as the pope.' Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso."-Pablo Picasso
We have 9 kids ages 20 through one year old. Besides kids we have 4 dogs, 4 cats, chickens, turkey, goats, rabbits and geese. My husband and I are crazy about each other; we embrace traditional family roles, and obviously like having a houseful of kids. I'm into vintage/retro things, art, and starting new projects. I enjoy homemaking and farming. I'm a trained doula and home birth advocate and have had seven fantastic unassisted births. I have a intense passion for: being a good mom and wife, natural family living and child care, turkey farming, gardening, canning, homesteading, re-purposing, up-cycling, natural baby care, unassisted birth and midwifery. My hubby grew up on a farm (that experience comes in super handy) and has a degree in economics and a masters in finance. Our family is the most important thing to us and we just love our hectic kid-crazy life! I hobby blog a bunch because I enjoy writing; I also write here because I can save a blog as a pdf file and print them up as memories and stories from our life. I want to always have these memories, because so many do fade. I want my children to one day read about how much we love them and each other.
