Most common question: "How do you do it?!"

I'll admit it, I've been holding out on you guys.
There is a secret to how we do it.
And THIS POST will reveal it all!
I'm spilling my guts!

1.  We only bath our kids when completely necessary or before any pictures or doctor's visits.
(Luke and Audg in 09)
(quickest way to a bath is Vaseline in the hair- Emma and G in '09)
I promise we HAVE bathed them since '09...once or twice

2.  I only change (their) sheets once a month...please don't tell them there is any other way.  Judge if you want, it's all about survival around here!

3.  I NEVER EVER feed them Fruity Pebbles.

4.  We always wear socks (see above).

5.  Individualism is strongly encouraged in wardrobe but not in food.  I fix 1 meal, no more!

6.  I rely on this little baby:    

Time delay wash cycle, put them in the night before and as soon as you wake up flip it to the dryer!

7.  And I've already told you about these:

8.  The children do not get every desire met promptly which has worked for our benefit because they get tired of waiting and realize they can either a. do it themselves or b. they don't really want it after all.

9.  Socks all live together as one big happy family near the door:


10.  We say "no" a lot.  There are so many great things going on and I would love to do them all but that would be to the detriment of our marriage and our kids.  So unless it lines up with what God has called us to as a family then we say "no."  It's freeing really.

I'm sure there is more that probably relates to dirt and filth but that's all I got right now.

Happy parenting:)
