About The Chaos

About ten years ago, two families came together; A family of 3 and a family of 4. My fiance' had 2 kids from a previous relationship, and I had 3. We came together and lived under one roof. Those five kids are now all teenagers; One in eighth grade, a Freshman, a Sophmore, a Junior and a Senior in High School. Due to some unfortunate events in my family, a few years ago we were blessed with an 11 month old baby boy (now 3) and he brought on BIG changes! Back to diapers, baby food, bottles, potty training, and cartoons! Last but certainly not least, in July of 2011 my 10 year old niece came to live with us as well! So now we are My Mixed Up Family of 9! In one house we have 7 kids, 2 adults, 6 of them boys, and 3 of them girls, 2 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, 6 different grades in school, 3 with cars, 1 in driver's ed, 5 different last names, and no vans or SUV's...I started this blog to vent, share, help, ask for help, tell you how I do it, swear to the things that happen in this crazy house, and well to be honest, to see if I am the only crazy person in the world! Hope it is as entertaining for you, as it is for me! I hope that you all will really get to know this Mixed up Family of mine, there will be plenty of funny stories, recipes, and chaos in between! Thanks (:
