Primarily written by Adrienne, a homeschooling mother of seven, ages 10 and under. She chronicles life, laughs, struggles, and lessons learned as she raises a larger-than-most sized family and tries to figure out what she's doing day by day.

With occasional posts, Alexandra, Adrienne's older sister, writes of her ranch life in Nevada and raising four sons, ages 5 and under. Life is never dull and her boys have given her some pretty awesome stories to tell.

Stick around awhile, and you're sure to laugh, nod, smile, be encouraged, and see what life is like with a big (little) family.

25.

Tonight, I made zucchini boats for supper. I mixed them up, got them in the oven, and they had to bake for 25 minutes.

In 25 minutes, I gave two boys haircuts, the same two boys baths, and took a shower myself. I made it just in time.

But if you see a bald spot, a crooked cut, or a few hairs missed - just remember: 25 minutes.

If it makes you feel any better Sis, I had a half a glass of wine a few weeks after Clayton was born and then gave the older two boys and my husband haircuts directly after drinking it. I hadn't had anything to drink in almost a year... Try explaining the (numerous) bald spots on all 3 of them with that story. Ugh.

That sounds like one you won't live down anytime soon. Does Matthew question your alcohol intake before handing you the clippers these days? ;)
