4. I am obsessed with watching large families on TLC and the Discovery channel.

5. When choosing between two of the same books, but with different covers... I definitely judge a book by its cover.

6. I have a speech impediment. R's mess me up big time, to this day.

7. In second grade, I cheated my way into winning a "rolling R's" contest for Spanish. (yeah, the little girl who can't say "biRd" correctly, SURELY practiced rolling her R's everyday for six months. Riiiiight. Who would believe that?)

Well, I have to say if my chaotic house of 4 didn't scare you off of having 8- then you are a really brave woman! Is Ian prepared for this? Just try not to have all 8 at once like that poor woman in California! It may be cute in theory, but breast feeding and chasing them when their toddlers going in 8 different directions would be a nightmare of epic proportions!!
