We did a few swim lessons at the rec center, and this happened. These are the conversations of my life (que Days music).
Caisen gets out of the pool and I start herding my 5 kids toward the changing room.
Random stranger: “I can’t believe you made your other 4 children just sit on the sidelines while their brother had a swim lesson!”
Me: “They were in the class before his.”
RS: “Oh. You must homeschool bc your children should be at school right now.”
Me: “They are in afternoon Preschool”
RS: “They can’t all be in preschool.”
Me: “Yes they can. Those three are triplets, they’re 5 and this one is 4.”
RS: “I can’t believe you grew 3 babies in your belly at once! I bet that was horrible.”
Me: “Actually, I almost died, so it was pretty hard.”
RS: “And then you had two more kids! Why would you do that?
Me: “Because I like my kids. I have to go now.”
I have conversations like this just about every time I go out, and I’m still surprised that some people have no filter or good manners.
What was less fun is Kimball had another febrile seizure. I know medical professionals say a febrile seizure is no big deal, but as a parent witnessing it in my own child, I assure you it is a very big deal, even if it’s not the first time. We all had the flu, and I couldn’t get their fevers to break. The seizure happened with the onset of the first fever, but I was so worried it would happen again.
