However, everybody in my family hasn’t been quite as joyful about us having 10 children. When there were only five little peppers in my home, my husband and I lived closer to family. There were comments made and many, many times when our family would stop by to visit certain family members. My husband and I couldn’t very rarely get a family member to babysit for a couple of hours to have an occasional date night. I seemed to be the person who was silently voted to watch other people’s children and was never invited to the party.
