How Do Women Even Shower When They Have 6 Kids???

I was at the pool this weekend and started talking to a woman holding an infant next to me.  She asked me if he was my first and I told her how he was actually my second.  I asked her the same.  She replied, “Oh no, he’s my sixth.”  I couldn’t hide the shock in my face.  Six kids?  Six???  She didn’t look like a character from a TLC show -  she looked like a woman my age. She had a great haircut, cute bathing suit, and didn’t look frazzled in the least.  How was that possible?  How could she have six kids and look so good?  I have two kids and often realize that I haven’t brushed my teeth since the day before and am wearing clothes that might have two rounds of spit-up on them.    I also realized that I need to stop looking so surprised and shocked when someone tells me that they have more than two children.  It’s not because I am judging or think that is too many kids to have – actually, it’s the opposite.  I’m in complete confusion as to how they keep it all together and stay sane.  I can barely find sanity at the end of the day with two children – is there even an end of the day with six?

So tell me all those parents with multiple children, how do you do it?  I can imagine having to invest in one of those hats that has the drinking tubes attached to it.  I would keep a constant flow of alcohol from it, starting around 3 pm.  That might make the long, dreaded afternoon hours much more bearable.  Heck, I might consider having a third child if I can be guaranteed one of those hats…  Ok, that’s a lie, my birthing days are done.  However, that might be my next baby shower present for any of my friends who decide to go for anything more than two…
