Great Post About Larger Families


I especially liked this part:

Don’t marvel that we do, in fact, know all of our offspring’s names (even—given a minute or two—their birthdates)!

I've had one of the pediatricians at our practice (in all kindness, and no ill intent at all!) marvel that I could tell her which individual had which symptoms when all of the children were sick and we brought them all in at once. She was astonished that I remembered the differences and could identify which child was dealing with which ailment. I thought that was odd, because I expected her to remember what her different patients were dealing with and they weren't her own children whose illness she was witnessing daily.
