Why am I burned out?? haahahahah

Today I am linking up with Mama Kat's writers workshop, answering the question... 
Why am I burned out?

Five kids
Blended rules, lives, time and stuff
Five kids to referee
Laundry, 2.5 bathrooms to clean, dinner for seven
Five kids to shuttle around
Two jobs for the World’s Greatest Husband, Two jobs for the Mom/Step-Mo
Five kids to clothe, feed, strengthen and support
Finding time to talk with, love and date the World’s Greatest Husband
Five kids, period.

Why is my life the best?
Five kids
A second chance at love and a modern day family
Five kids sharing life’s ups and downs, navigating their way
A big house to build our happy life in
Five kids engaged in many activities to help them grow
We have the means to provide for our big family
Five kids that work together with spirit and open hearts (usually)
A husband who is supportive, loving, kind and only wants the best for all 7 of us
Five kids, period.

I love this!
I think the positive spin is great.
Yes, our kids can burn us out, but they are also the ones that keep us going in the end, aren't they?

Kids. They give us so much joy and suck us dry. Why did we have kids? ;)

I read the other day that people who have children are no happier than their non-parent counterparts. The reasoning was that although children are wonderful they also add a lot of stress to life.

BUT- the added stress is SOOOOO worth it!
