A little bit of vanity, a little bit of crazy

We took our first outing as a family of six yesterday. We went to the mall in Indy where I indulged my vanity and bought a few cutie new clothes. I am on a quest not to become that mom with so many kids she can't even put a decent outfit together. We confirmed yesterday what we had assumed -- we have crossed the line into crazy big family (even though I don't feel like a big family) and everyone looks and comments. Part of it was because Bella is so tiny, and people always want to see tiny babies, but it was also a bit because we had four kids with us. Maybe it is vain, but if everyone is going to notice us when we go out, I am at least not going to confirm their assumption that a"big" family equals dirty kids and a frumpy mom!

Unfortunately, we didn't succeed in proving that many kids doesn't mean unruly kids. Ours were pretty crazy. Andrew and I fail miserably in the parenting department because we tend to laugh at our kids misbehaviour. But seriously, it's funny when Christopher leaps into a window display and pretends to be a mannequin!

It's hard to imagine you lookiong frumpy, Sarah!! All of you Hatke ladies always looks so lovely - of coure I've never been to your house at 6 am, so I'm sure you can do frumpy just like anyone...I've just never seen it!!

And I wish I could see the tiny baby girl!!

Yes... Four+ kids does cross that line, doesn't it! I hardly notice the comments anymore... until I am out without my children, or only a couple... Then I notice how no one talks to me! :)

Good for you for getting yourself some new outfits!

Your kids are darling!! I would have laughed too at the mannequin imitation! How funny!
