I mentioned that yesterday during Sanj’s office open house I met all sorts of interesting people. This is the era where it’s not strange to hear that someone came from a family of 12 kids or someone had 6 boys. I am fasinated to hear their stories and if their mama survived! Of course it was a different time when having many kids was so different and a norm of sorts.
I love hearing of their Christmas plans with the crazy big families. I can’t help but wonder what our lives will be like 10-20 years from now.
I think of the poor woman that will be the first … to pave way for the other women to enter and dare to stay in our lives. Who will bring home the first serious girl? And I already pray for her. I hope she is strong in body, mind and spirit. She is going to need it!
Today, as we came home, it was obvious that one of the boys had a friend over and she was a girl. Apparently they aren’t dating but they hang out. The rest of the boys are not fond of her… not sure why. Sanj feels the same why. (FYI- everyone thinks I’m going to be the hardest to pass though… uh uh… it will be Sanj!)
Anyways, we are coming into the house, I hear Josh as he peeks into the basement window… “Oh they have the fireplace on. Isn’t that romantic? Huh? What does he even KNOW about romantic? I almost have a heart attack until I hear the other boys… “I have to pee… let’s pee on her car door knob.” There then is more whispering.
Oh my. Is this normal? Again… I fear for the first true girlfriend that comes into our family.
