Hiccups and Bickers are Inevitable

When you cram 7 people, 5 of them under the age of 8, into a 12x25 foot box, some things are unavoidable.




Stepping on each others' toes.

Sharing sicknesses (and I'm pretty sure one kid has RSV; just waiting for the others to show symptoms!).

Grouchy grownups.


Too much screen time.

You get the idea.

Oddly, we still can never find all the socks and shoes we need to go out! And we still don't get school done. Go figure.

Still, we're doing remarkably well. The neighbor even commented on how quiet the kids were. That's good. It makes me feel better when I hear one of the neighbors mixing techno music through the walls at midnight. At the very least, we aren't bothering HIM.
