Sometimes some of our children will go to hang out at friends’ houses, but we have to drive them to their destination
My wife and I both happened to be the only child in each of our families, and I guess that’s why we wished that we had a large family. So over the years, we had kid after kid and now we have 6 children. Of course, we had to invest in a much larger home so that everybody could have their own room. We actually have a house now that has 9 bedrooms if you can believe it. I thought the energy bills would be overpriced, but we have an energy efficient HVAC that keeps the bills low. The thing I think I love the most is the fact that the house is out in the country. We are not bothered by the sounds of the city or anything like that, we actually hear nothing but nature with the birds singing and the bees buzzing around. If you go outside during the night hours, it’s nothing but sweet peaceful silence sometimes, either that or you hear the crickets chirping and frogs croaking. Most of the time though when the kids are all home, there is no such thing as silence. These children are always playing, fighting, singing, dancing, and the list carries on. Kids will be kids and we always tell them to get outside. Sometimes some of our children will go to hang out at friends’ houses, but we have to drive them to their destination. It’s always nice getting a little bit of peace though when they are away. More recently, I decided to take just my wife to a getaway cabin so we could have actual peace for awhile. It was great, the kids got a babysitter and we had a lovely romantic weekend getaway with a good climate control system and a comfortable fireplace.
