Welcome to Our Hobbit-hole

August 9, 2017

Today seemed like a good day to start a website.  It began in the usual way for a new, sleep-deprived mom, with a baby blurp of spit-up on my shirt, a frantic search for somebody’s socks and shoes, and a round of discipline for a feisty toddler.  All of this was before first breakfast, let alone second breakfast.

Then we moved on to summer homework, which consisted of math for the second grader, math, handwriting, and reading for the first grader, and playtime outside for small children.  At about 10:30 a.m., I finally got to fry and eat my eggs. “I can make you some eggs if you’d like,” said Bilbo to Gandalf, and I to my older son. Like the wizard, my son declined the offer in favor of tea.

After I cleaned the kitchen, and myself, I donned my new Gandalf t-shirt from Wizard World Comic Con 2017.  The shirt reads, “I am never late.  I arrive precisely when I mean to.”  This was a good shirt for today, since I was late to pick up my daughter from ballet intensive because I had to nurse the baby.

Life in a large family is never dull.  Exciting, messy, loud, and exhausting, but never dull.  I enjoy those boring, tidy, quiet, restful moments, but they are few and far between. We do, indeed, have eight children which is adventure beyond our wildest dreams.  My husband and I are just along for the ride.  Join us as we battle cave trolls, feed the dwarves, climb trees with the Elves, and anything else you can find in the world of children’s literature and the real world.
