Posted by Cindy Conner on

For the first thirty years of our marriage our house was like a Motel 6.  I could say a lovely B&B but raising five kids took most of the lovely out of our home, so Motel 6 is a more accurate description. There were always dirty dishes in the sink, always somebody's underwear on the bathroom floor, dried toothpaste in the bathroom sink, bath towels with holes, and ALWAYS at least one child who could not remember to flush. Ours was not a "drop in anytime" kind of house.

“You know the Brady Bunch?  Picture them with knives.” 

There were seasons in my life, sometimes years long seasons, where this was much more my reality.  Nobody told me about sibling rivalry when they were describing their 26-hour labor and delivery tales and giving out their unsolicited parenting advice. Nobody told me raising a family and having a home would be the hardest thing I would ever do.
